During All-Star Weekend, Nike, LeBron James’ LeBron James Foundation, and the New Orleans Recreation Department linked up to donate a new Basketball court to the City of New Orleans. The new court is constructed of nearly 6,000 pairs of recycled sneakers. To celebrate the donation of the court, New Orleans Mayor C. Ray Nagin, Brandon Roy, Kevin Durant, and LeBron James himself attended the court dedication in front of 100s of local student athletes.
Not one to let an opportunity to flash some exclusive footwear pass him by, LeBron James broke out a pair of Air Force 25 Low PEs. Similar in color to the [“Olympic” Nike Air Force 25 Low PE], the “LeBron” Air Force 25 features a White leather upper with an embroidered “LBJ23″ logo on the side. To add a bit more pop, the “LeBron” 25s feature a Patent Team Red Swoosh and a Patent Navy heel. The upper sits on a translucent outsole.
As is the case with many LBJ exclusives, we do not expect these to release, but, with the House of Hoops picking up steam, we can’t rule it out completely.
