LeBron's New Shoe Refers To Him As A Two-Time Champion

This here is a picture of the sockliner of the new LeBron X shoe, which boasts a fancy floral colorway. It's kind of weird that it says "2-time champion" because, you know, LeBron is just a one-time champion right now, and he will continue to be one for the foreseeable future if the Heat lose to the Spurs tonight. » 6/18/13 12:46pm 6/18/13 12:46pm

The New Air Jordans Look Super Dumb

Friday's "home" loss to the Clippers was frustrating for the then-winless Lakers, and especially for Steve Blake.

Maybe you've heard that Nike is releasing its new LeBron James-inspired shoes this fall, called the Nike LeBron X.

EBay Bidding On 215 Pairs Of Warren Sapp's Nikes Is Now At $16,500

As a "Young Person" who aspires to bring a sense of "flair" to his wardrobe, I own a bunch of colorful sneakers. Some of them are Air Jordans, though I find that Air Jordans generally give little bang for their buck. They're boxy and limited in their palettes. Elephant print is about as adventurous as they get.
