The basketball legend recently took a selfie that was picked up by fashion blog UpscaleHype. In it, he’s rocking a Hermes cap, a Travis Scott Cactus Jack x Uninterrupted graduation tee and Nike shorts. So far, so normal… until you cop his signature John Elliot x Nike Icon sneakers. He has an orange shoe on his left foot and a white one on the right.
It’s a bold move – even for the renowned king of the court. And one that shouldn’t be overlooked simply because of the price tag ($320 AUD for those wondering.)
“Oh no Lebron,” one guy wrote on Insta. “What frat he in?” another added.
But beyond the “bad fits” and “tacky” comments, there were a couple of people down with his style.
“Kingin,” one person said. “The Lebron Icons came in orange?” another added, alongside the mindblown emoji.
To be fair to the man, it’s nothing the Zayn Malik’s of the world haven’t worn before him. (the singer was spotted wearing mismatched kicks while hiking back in 2016.) Still, only time will tell if this trend takes off.
*Prays to God it doesn’t*
