LeBron James may share a birthday with Tiger Woods (December 30), but the NBA MVP and world champion Miami Heat star has designed a shoe in tribute to Arnold Palmer. Or, rather, in honor of Arnie’s potion of choice.
King James’ new sneaks, a photo of which he tweeted to his five million-plus followers on Wednesday, are dubbed the LeBronold Palmer 9 lows, and come in tropical pinks and greens, with a photo of Palmer’s half-lemonade, half-iced tea mixture inside.
While James’ new kicks received generally boffo reviews on Twitter, at least one hoops fan was unimpressed.
"we get it it he's a great basketball player and he's famous doesn't mean everything he posts is great," tweeted @mo_alz. "And that's my opinon if u like the shoes good for u"
