Sneaker Watch: LeBron James' Difficult 'Decision' Week
Take a look at the many sneakers Bron was wearing during the past week. If you're a Cavs fans, you might want to skip this one.
words_Nick DePaula Right or wrong, savvy or callous, LeBron James has made his decision to join the Miami Heat for the start of the next NBA season, and throughout the past week, he was seen wearing several different sneakers as he traveled all over the country during "the process." While helping out at the LeBron James Skills Camp and playing in a few pickup games in Akron, James got a few runs in his upcoming signature Air Max LeBron VIII. It was an all-black undercover pair, but expect to see his Heat-friendly launch colorway dropping this November. Later on in the week, there was an epic foreshadowing of sorts that nobody caught on to, as James slyly rocked the 'Miami' themed Penny IIs to his camp. I always like noting that Penny played in a total of eighteen games for the Heat, and was eventually waived in favor of adding Luke Jackson to the roster. A hot colorway nonetheless. (And a red translucent outsole would've gone a long ways.) For the moment ten million viewers nationwide were watching, LeBron James wore the Nike Zoom Toki in Rustic/ Sail on his hour-long "The Decision" ESPN special live from the Boys & Girls Club in Greenwich, CT. The chosen Tokis were understated and matched his belt. That's all there was to it. For Cavs fans, think of the solo portrait below as an awesome "U MAD?" picture. And lastly (feel free to close the tab now if you're from Cleveland...) LeBron surprisingly wore the Nike Huarache 2010 for his ceremonious introduction as a member of the Miami Heat at American Airlines Arena. It was simply a logistical decision, as he didn't travel to South Beach from Greenwich with basketball shoes, and there happened to be a pair available from the Heat locker room. No need to theorize that Nike is pulling his signature shoe now that he's planning to be DWade's sidekick, or any other similar conspiracy theories. LeBron James making things official in Miami. Unfortunately, the season doesn't start tomorrow.
