Always one to embrace the history of his signature Nike line, LeBron James showed up to Game 5 of the NBA Finals laced up in one of his earliest pairs.

While not one of his actual basketball shoes, the crimson "Cavs" Nike Air Force 1 originally released in 2003, limited to 3,000 pairs. Not surprisingly, James had a pair on ice and broke it out for a special occasion in Oakland.

Game 5 tips off tonight at 8:00 p.m. EST.
