Fresh off a NBA Championship and Olympic Gold Medal, King James has the tenth edition of his signature shoe coming out.
The announcement of the shoe brought plenty of conversation along with suggestions that the shoe should be boycotted because of it’s cost.
James spoke with the Sun-Sentinel recently about the shoes unveil, and all the confusion surrounding it’s price.
He said the initial focus on a possible $300-plus price was misleading, “because the facts weren’t correct.”
“We have wide ranges of shoes that range from $300 all the way down to $160, $180,” he said, with the Nike website currently offering a signature James model at $120.
“We have great technology and they do a great job of putting out great shoes and things of that nature,” he said. “But it just bothers you when things aren’t always correct. But other than that, we move on and we get the real facts out there and we live with them.”
“We just try to do a good job of continuing to innovate the shoe game. Like I said, it’s great technology out there. We go around asking kids and asking people who love shoes what they like to see in shoes and we go from there.”
I’m of a biased opinion about the shoe, because I’ve owned every pair he’s made.
I personally like Nike, and feel he has one of the more comfortable and stylish pair of shoes out every year.
Now I’m on the record of saying I wouldn’t pay $300 for a pair nor would I buy my child a pair. That’s my choice and it would be my money.
