Small Update on LeBron James
After signing his 4 year $154 million contract with the LA Lakers last week, he didn’t waste any time when he appeared courtside at a Lakers summer league game wearing Lakers shorts with matching purple signature sneakers. The Lakers team Instagram account posted footage of their new addition to the arriving team member.
James wasted no time showing team spirit for the new squad, as this was his first appearance as a Laker in style wearing Just Don x Mitchell and Ness Lakers shorts with the striking purple suede edition of his 1st signature shoe, The Nike Air Zoom Generation.
It was actually his 2nd appearance in the purple sneakers, he wore them before Game 3 of the NBA Finals in June. The one of one pair is constructed from fireproof suede, initially used for Nascar racer Demy Hamlin’s Jordan Brand Racing Boots.
The sneaker world immediately took note of the purple Air Zoom Generations the 1st time James wore them, but after joining the Lakers, the shoes are more buzzworthy. Many collectors especially Lakers Fans, are now hoping that the colorway will have a retail release. If produced for the public, they likely won’t be constructed from the fireproof suede, but the fans will probably not mind.
