LeBron James’ Zoom LeBron VI Game Worn Player Exclusive »

Nov 10, 2008 at 7:09 am | lebron-vishoes

In the last game King James had broken out the 101 LeBron Six colorway, and only couple days after we have a few detailed shots of them. Now we are able to spot his PE mark, that each year sets his shoes apart from the production models. Notice the back where his LRJ logo is embedded into the shoe. Also, there are no insoles within these sneakers. Apparently LeBron took them out before giving the VIs to the happy fans. Read the whole story below posted by ZOOMLEBRONtwenty3 at issforums.com.

It’s actually pretty crazy how I got them. I actually got them indirectly from him. After the game Bron went over to the section where I was sitting and the fans just mobbed him. He stopped and signed some autographs (which I’ve never seen him do) and pretty much gave away everything but his socks and uniform. After he took his shoes he gave them to two individual kids/ teenage kids. I didn’t think anything of it because as a HUGE LeBron fan I was just happy that I got to get that close to him, and I was excited that he gave my brother one of his wristbands. So after this, my brother and I walk out to the concourse to meet some of my buddies who also were at the game. Next thing I know I see one of the kids (he was probably 14 or 15, he wasn’t with any parents) holding the shoe and and yelling that it was LeBron’s shoe. He looked over at us and says it again (probably because we all had on our witness gear). So I said to him in a joking manner that I’d give him $200 for the shoe. Before I even finished my sentence, he said “where’s the money?” The rest is history. I’m a HUGE LeBron fan and this is my first PE, so I can’t even express how excited I am to have these. The whole night was great with him having an epic game, but to be able to get his shoe after the game just topped it all off!

    Dude, u prob could have gotten both shoes for the same price. Sz 16 pe is very easy to find. One shoe is worth absolutely zilch. waste of $200

  • Hogie

    i would guess that they are just extra threads that were used in making the shoe.
    And this kid is hella lucky to get these.

    I think the same. Sometimes when you take out your insoles there are some extra threads around. Usually they are taped to the bottom like here.

    I have to laugh at a lot of the comments here. LeBron’s game worn shoes typically sell for between $1500 and $3500. Even novice NBA game worn collectors know this. This guy got one of LBJ’s shoes for $200 and was nice enough to share his story here … and a bunch of tools immediately start ripping him. Jealousy and stupidity make for a dangerous combination.

    And the cables? They are threads from inside the sole. LBJ uses custom orthodics so he takes the factory insoles out of each pair he uses for practice or game action. When the Nike insoles are taken out, you will see these threads, as they are tucked/taped underneath.
