LeBron James’ Crazy Shoes Go Viral During Lakers-Suns (Photos)

LeBron James’ Crazy Shoes Go Viral During Lakers-Suns (Photos)

The Los Angeles Lakers fell to the Phoenix Suns 114-104 on Tuesday night.

It was a meaningful game for several reasons. One, it marked Phoenix’s official move into the upper echelon of the West, as the team now boasts the second-best record in the conference. Two, it featured a truly bizarre moment between LeBron James and Devin Booker that will undoubtedly be scrutinized by social media. And three, it reaffirmed that the Lakers are in trouble, as the defending champs are now 4-6 in their last 10 outings.

Of course, none of that got the most attention on Tuesday night.

Rather, the thing that stole the show was James’ choice of kicks.

The photos largely speak for themselves:

Reactions were almost overwhelmingly positive:

James’ shoe game is widely regarded as one of the best in the NBA. Only Charlotte Hornets star Gordon Hayward has a better one. James’ Lakers teammate Alex Caruso also comes close.

What will James’ Nike team ultimately come up with next? Time will tell.
