Despite the fact that LeBron James is an All-Star basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers, his new Air Zoom LeBron V shoes pay tribute to New York and the Yankees with a design that incorporates the classic pinstripes. It also features his #23 set up as if it represented Don Mattingly, along with words sewn under the tongue that read: “Le-Bron Ja-Mes. Clap. Clap. Clap Clap Clap”â€”mimicking the cheer of New York fans.
Hardcore sports geeks may be up in arms (especially those that reside in Cleveland), but New Yorkers will undoubtedly be delighted when the shoe is released exclusively in local stores this March. Pricing information has not been made available.
