In a quote taken from Mahoney’s article, “The Nuggets forward doesn’t pull his ankle-high socks all the way over his foot, instead leaving extra material hanging over his toes, then folding that over the top of his foot to make a double layer of protection under his shoelaces.”
Eddie then is quoted saying, “I don’t get blisters, that’s why I’ve got the prettiest toes in the league.” What!?!? The last thing I would want to be known for league-wide is having the prettiest feet! Not because taking care of your feet is not a noble quality, but you would have to wonder about a fellow NBA player that would pay you that compliment…
He even admits to the occasional pedicure to pamper his feet. Najera’s not the only one using this sock routine: He learned it from teammate Andre Miller, a longtime sock folder himself, reports Mahoney.
Bizarre to say the least is all the commentary I will add. Socks, shoes, pedicures, ahhhh I don’t care as long as Eduardo “Energy” Najera keeps giving this team a rock-solid starting power forward. I mean, you gotta love that hustle!
