Yep, Lakers’ Nick Young has a separate house for his shoes (and shoe keepers, obvs)
There’s not much that can contain Los Angeles Lakers star Nick Young’s outsize personality.
Turns out Swaggy P’s outsize footwear collection is hard to contain as well.
A particularly swagalicious anecdote in a Sports Illustrated profile of the Lakers star revealed the 6,600-square-foot house Young recently bought with girlfriend Iggy Azalea (once owned by singer Selena Gomez) has a separate abode that will function as the primary residence … for his shoes.
The property, tucked behind a gate in the San Fernando Valley neighborhood of Tarzana, comes with a detached building that Young is converting into a "shoe house." He employs not one but two "shoe keepers," who oversee his 500-plus pairs of sneakers, a collection that includes Vans fitted with roller-skating wheels.
Forget shoe closets. If you haven’t got a whole other annex to hold your footwear and hired the help to maintain them, you haven’t got anything.
