Default LeBron changing shoes during half-time

Any info on why he did it? He started the game with yellow/gold kicks and after the brake came back in grey ones. He did play a lot better after that

New kicks are stiff and typically a bit uncomfortable til you play in em for a week or so.

He was probably like, "man **** these blisters ill put on my good shoes."

Opposite for me.

A 6'8" 270lbs guy running, cutting, leaping 36 inches in the air for 18-20 minutes would definitely put trauma on his shoes. No matter how great the air max tech.

u only have break in leather shoes, these days the synthetics with flywire don't need to be broken in.


Players switch out shoes usually because they wanted to give away a game worn pair, Blake did this all star game or to promote the shoe more

No shoes of the same model ever fit exactly the same. (speaking from experience)

The ones he had on might have had a defect or something that made them uncomfortable.

the difference is, that james' shoes are made for him, they measured his feet and everything, to create a perfect fitted shoe

but the reason is: people talking about the shoe, thats advertising - what else do you need?
