Each year, LeBron James creates a little extra buzz at NBA Finals practices with unique choices in footwear. Last year, James was spotted getting a few shots up in the 'Red October' Nike Air Yeezy 2. The year before that, it was the 'Iron Man' Nike LeBron 10 custom by Mache. With the Finals set to tip off in Oakland tomorrow night, James is at it again, this time breaking out a flashy lifestyle soccer shoe.

Hard to miss, James hit the hardwood at Oracle Arena today in the 'Liquid Metal' Nike Tiempo 94 Mid. The shoes, which released at select Nike accounts last November, blend gold and silver together on metallic finished synthetic uppers. Not exactly ideal for basketball, but a perfect option to get people talking.

We'll see what James has planned for the game when the Finals tip off tomorrow at 9:00 p.m.
