Kicks: LeBron’s Finals Shoes?

by Chris O’Leary/@olearychris

Last night LeBron James posted this picture of his LeBron 8 PS on Twitter, calling it a special edition color.

This could be the first shoe that LeBron plays in during the Finals, which get underway tomorrow night in Miami. It’s also possible that the shoes could have some further alterations made to them by Nike’s graphic design team. Remember that Kobe Bryant had custom Finals versions of his sneaks the last two years.

The changes to the shoe aren’t drastic in this picture, but what would you guys think if LeBron walked onto the AAA court with these on tomorrow night?

    The color scheme don’t make sense. He plays for the Heat, not the Spurs.

  • Migs

    @BlackPhantom – maybe he’ll wear some white and red socks under that to show through the hyperfuse holes

    Ahhhh, I thought it said his FINAL shoe, as in Nike wasn’t coming out with any more LeBrons anymore. LOL. Sorry, my mind’s off today for Memorial Day.

    @Rigo Gonzalez me too, thats why I clicked on it

  • kriz

    def taken a step back with his shoe equity. lbj 7s were hot (the rare color schemes) but these 8s have done nothing for me

  • Demigod

    Terrible pic. It looks like there is $h!t all around that shoe. No justice.

    And the next pic is lebron shoes for go to the bathroom, it cost 150$. For the next season King Lebron will wear a sneaker made it by chinese kid skin and will cost 200$. Thanks for the support stupid people who pays the explotation.

    I always liked when teams wore black shoes/black socks in the playoffs. It just added something extra. White is strange enough looking never mind silver.

    @Kas You should go see a doctor because LeBron’s shoes are NOT ugly… Thats probably you.. @balher Ahaa sure bt who will stop LeBron ?

  • coggie13

    @celts4ever by saying you are 17 means you would have seen less shows than most of us. It does not make it more impressive than if you were say 70.. sigh… Bet they feel good to play ball in.

    If there’s a 70 year old sneakerhead out there, he/she needs to get in touch with me. That’s feature material.

    @black phantom – but the colour scheme works with his skin and his teeth, so he’ll be alright.

    worse sneaker I’ve seen this season.

  • http://slamonline.com Spaceship Jay

    I’ve never understood this premise; The Playoffs are the “overtime” of the NBA season, when things get tougher… So Nike produces a shoe that looks like it provides half of the material and support that his regular season one did? Weird.

    @Spaceship They’ve done that the last two years. Playoffs role around and they cut back on materials to make the shoe lighter. I don’t get it either, this whole emphasis on light basketball shoes is getting out of hand.

  • Mia6MVP

    Yo rigo im on the same page man hahah i was like WTF! hows he not gonna have any other shoes haha

  • Anonymousnupe

    They’re so NOT special that Bron should accentuate that fact by having special shoes made for each QUARTER!

  • broni

    they dont do and design shoes like the way they used to…specially mid 90′s when almost all basketball shoes were so DAMN COOL and NICE!
