With the Miami Heat set to receive their NBA championship rings before tipping off the season against the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night, you had to know LeBron James would have some special swag in store for the occasion. LeBron will be rocking some gold-themed Nike LeBron X sneakers — you know, the same shoes King James has found himself defending because of the insane price tag associated with them. My guess is these ones cost a bit more. The sneakers have several customized inscriptions. On one side, a logo reads “MVP” and “697.” LeBron scored 697 points in the postseason on the way to claiming his first Larry O’Brien trophy last year. On the other side the sneakers read “CHAMP” and “16-7,” which was the Heat’s playoff record last season. Are these bad boys a bit over the top? You bet, but what special-edition NBA sneakers aren’t? Have you seen these Nickelodeon-looking things? In years past we would be all over LeBron for doing something like this. I’ll give him a pass simply because he’s an NBA champion now and I expect him to be scary good this season now that the monkey is off his back. Enjoy the show. Photos via Nike
