Several stars showed up for the game between the Ohio State Buckeyes and Notre Dame Fightin’ Irish. But none have garnered more attention than the Los Angeles Lakers forward james lebronwho attended the game with his eldest son, Bronny.
Fans and media picked up the tour from every possible angle. Does the trip to Columbus indicate that Bronny will play for the Buckeyes men’s basketball team next year? Could this be the first sign of LeBron’s second return to the Cleveland Cavaliers?
As everyone pushed their agenda, FanNation Kicks inquired about shoes worn by father and son. Bronny wore the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Low ‘Reverse Mocha’, which we talked about a lot this summer. But LeBron wore an even more exclusive pair of kicks. Below is everything fans need to know about the shoes LeBron wore on Saturday, August 3.
Nike Dunk Low ‘Off-White University Red’
It took a long time to figure out the shoes LeBron was wearing, but finding the answer was worth the wait. The NBA legend wore the Nike Dunk Low in the ‘Off-White University Red’ colorway.
The Nike Dunk Low has been around since the 1980s, and like most fashion trends, its popularity has gone up and down. But the retro basketball shoe has experienced unprecedented popularity in the past two years, especially when Nike collaborates with the Off-White brand.
The Nike Dunk Low in ‘Off-White University Red’ was released on December 20, 2019 for $170. According StockXthe average resale price is now $694.
The late great fashion designer Virgil Abloh paid homage to skate and basketball culture with his shoe design. The ‘Off-White University Red’ colorway is based on the ‘UNLV’ colorway but features a secondary lacing system, zip ties and signature Off-White text.
However, it looks like LeBron removed the secondary lacing system and zip ties, but added his own style by replacing the red laces with white ones.
