Dan Gilbert got a custom pair of LeBron's first shoe

New, comments

StockX, a sneaker reselling site, worked with two designers to make Dan Gilbert a custom pair of LeBron's first signature sneaker.

Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert has had a complicated relationship over the years with LeBron James. Now, however, GIlbert owns a custom pair of Nike Zoom Generations - LeBron's first ever signature shoe - that no one else in the world owns.

StockX, a company Gilbert is an investor in, gifted Gilbert's with a custom pair of the the Zoom Generations. Made by Detroit designer El Cappy and Cleveland designer JBF, the shoes pay homage to the city Gilbert is from (Detroit) and the city where he owns a sports franchise (Cleveland). In a way, these are the 'What The' colorway for LeBron's first ever shoe. StockX has a rotational video up on their website for a full look at the shoe.
