WATCH: Barako’s Maierhofer uses shoe for block attempt
Rico Maierhofer makes the best of a bad situation, attempting to block Gabby Espinas' shot with his shoe

MANILA, Philippines – Just Do It? More like Just Shoe It.

Barako Bull Energy Cola’s Rico Maierhofer made the best of a bad situation after losing his shoe during Wednesday’s game against the San Miguel Beermen on Wednesday. With no lull in the action to put his shoe back on, Maierhofer continued to pick up defensive assignments at the other end. 

As San Miguel’s Gabby Espinas goes up for a layup under the basket, Maierhofer leaps up to block the shot, waving his green and orange shoe around. Whether it was Maierhofer’s defensive or the sight of neon colored kicks waving around, Espinas lost the ball and possession.

The semi-legal move wasn’t enough to save Barako in the end as San Miguel Beer held on for the 116-113 win. –
