MIAMI, Florida — Alabama running back Eddie Lacy revealed Thursday that his quarterback, AJ McCarron, has a bit of a thing for shoes. Lacy referred to it as a “fetish.”
Apparently, McCarron really likes his shoes. He said he brought a “whole bagful” to Miami with him. He added he has about 130 pairs of shoes in all.
“I’ve got a lot of shoes,” McCarron said, smiling. “I’ve always been that way ever since I was little. I figure you can wear the same outfit and change the shoes and it looks like a totally different outfit.
“I’m just big into shoes. Me and Kenny (Bell) kind of go back and forth and king of compete and see how many each of us have. But, yeah, I definitely brought a lot.”
