Part of me wishes that I was a little more into sneakers. But then the other part of me realizes that the unreal amount of money that some of these shoes go for is better off being put to use on something that I can actually use. Either way, I love checking out limited edition sneakers. And in this case, it’s an added bonus when said sneakers are limited edition versions of the shoes worn by LeBron James.
Taking “The LeBrons” to a whole new level, Nike decided to release four separate versions of the Zoom LeBron Six. Each one represents one of the four characters in the LeBron James marketing campaign, having distinct characteristics and the actual character located on the inside of the tongue. Retailing for a cool $160, each shoe is actually made of different material. Check them out after the jump…
Personally, I dig the “wise” versions. There is something about the wine and gold that makes them look pretty cool. Something that I was surprised about was that the release party for these shoes was actually held in Cleveland. Being that the “House of Hoops” is in New York, City, it’s good to see LeBron holding the party on the East Side of town.
Oh, and these guys were released on the 25th of October, so if you were hoping to get your hands on a pair, to eBay you go! Small premium to say the least.
