Bucknell’s Stephen Brown didn’t have a choice the first time he put on his bright pink James Harden shoes.

Brown’s shoes reportedly fell apart just before their game against American on Feb. 24, and he needed a replacement. A staff member ran out and found him these.

It was the closest he could find to the team color on such short notice, so Brown went with it.

And it worked. Brown finished with 10 points and four assists in their win against American, so he kept wearing them.

Naturally, he wore them against Michigan State in the NCAA tournament on Friday, and the internet loved it.
