LeBron’s opening night sneakers sent a message
LeBron advocates equality in these special PE’s for opening night.
After an amazing opening night for King James and the Cavs, we take a look back at what was on feet for the player of the game.
LeBron James made a big statement tonight – and we’re not just talking about his stat line of 29/16/9. He took to the hardwood in Cleveland tonight in these very special “Equality” PE’s of his Nike LeBron 15 which serves as a timely message of protest, something that is also happening in other sports at professional level.
It’s something that both LeBron and Nike have taken a stand to. James has been a vocal advocate for not only black rights, but equal rights for everyone – so why not use a big stage like opening night to send such a strong message? A message that he not only believes in, but deals with and experiences day-to-day.
With an all-Black upper and detailing in Metallic Gold, it creates a powerful impact. And it helps that they look wavy AF, too.
