LeBron James has been stunting on and off the court in this year’s NBA Finals, and his latest MVP-worthy moment was what he chose to wear on his feet to Game 4 against the Golden State Warriors. He showed up to Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland sporting a pair of the “Bred” Air Jordan 1s.
If his sneaker selection is forecasting tonight’s game, then Steph Curry and the Warriors are in for a long night.
When we learned that Jordan Brand would be blessing Russell Westbrook with his own signature sneaker- the Jordan Westbrook 0- it wasn’t exactly what we were expecting. In fact, it was nothing at all like what we were hoping for.
Instead of a technologically advanced performance basketball sneaker, we are instead given this lifestyle model which features a premium upper, vulcanized outsole and D-ring eyelets. According to catalog scans, the Westbrook 0 won’t be launching until October, so there’s still time for these to grow on you, including these all-black and all-white pairs.
Having said that, we won’t be surprised when these start showing up on clearance racks alongside the rest of the ‘Lifestyle’ signature sneakers.
Hopefully, Jordan Brand won’t limit one of their most explosive, and entertaining, athletes to mediocre lifestyle sneakers
