Oh yes.

Hoopworld has been shooting from downtown for a few weeks now, plenty long enough for fans of the game to have decided if they would or wouldn't spend $65 on some branded basketball shoes. If you're in the camp who would pay for them, today is your lucky day, as Virtual Toys and Streamline Studios have announced a line of merchandise available through the official Hoopworld Zazzle store.

If you're not keen on dropping so much money on some new kicks, t-shirts are less than half the price at $27.65 each, going down to only $18.17 each if you buy 250 or more! For something a little more formal, we recommend one of the many ties on offer: this one bearing the image of a bomb is particularly cool.

MADRID, Spain – August 9th, 2010 – Virtual Toys and Streamline Studios announced that the HoopWorldTM branded merchandise shop is now open.
