Zoom LeBron VI: Big Apple Edition
Cost: $140, November 28th at Niketown, Foot Locker, etc.
I can't quite figure out why, but there certainly is a lot of talk surrounding tonight's Cavaliers-Knicks match-up in New York. Must have something to do with moon phases or Quentin Richardson. I don't know; I don't read blogs.
But what I do know is that when LeBron James returns to the same Madison Square Garden stage where he dropped 50 last season, he will be doing so in a very special "New York City" version of his latest signature sneakers.
The "Big Apple" kicks take inspiration from one of LeBron's favorite cities, New York, by incorporating the color red throughout the shoe as a tribute to the city's famous nickname. This will be the third time that LeBron wears a special "New York" version of his signature shoe. Two seasons ago he wore a "graffiti" edition of the Zoom LeBron IV and last season he wore a Yankees-inspired pinstriped version of the Zoom LeBron V.
Word has it The King will also debut the Cavaliers new road jersey tonight.
