Yesterday at the Cleveland Cavaliers’ title parade, LeBron James went old school with his kicks. In lieu of a more recent LeBron sneaker, James wore the ‘Oregon’ LeBron 2, which also doubled as the colors for St. Vincent-St. Mary High School. The LeBron 2, which, debuted in 2004 during LeBron’s second season in the NBA.
As you can see, these are a bit different than some of the LeBrons LeBron rocks now. The design features a strap and the colors aren’t as uniform over the whole shoe. Inside, there’s also a lion design that isn’t used much, if at all, on current LeBron shoes and gear. As noted by Nice Kicks, these are also a rare sneaker. They were originally made for the 2004-05 Oregon Ducks men’s basketball team and only 60 pairs are said to exist.
This also isn’t the first time that the LeBron has worn retro sneakers. At an NBA Finals practice, he wore a pair of the original Air Zoom Generations. He’s also rocked a LeBron III PE and a pair of red LeBron IVs at two other respective practices.
