So, when we spotted Zion and his Duke teammates in Washington, D.C. the other day, we asked the 18-year-old straight up ... who's got the shoe?
Zion smiled and told us, "Uh, ask coach about 'em."
So, we did! We hit up the Duke athletic dept., and a rep told us they have no idea where the shoes ended up.
Next call was to Nike -- maybe they have the shoe, right?
A Nike spokesperson told us ... “We’re thrilled to see Zion returning to the court. After working closely with the Duke Basketball team to examine the issue, we are confident this was an isolated incident. We continue to work with Duke, and all of our partner programs, to ensure we are providing the best product for their athletes.”
When we again asked who currently possessed the busted sneaker, Nike told us ... "I don't have any more information [on the location of the shoe]."
