LeBron James has been spending some of his Olympic down-time strolling the streets of London, and as one of the most recognizable athletes of all of the USA, he was ‘mobbed’ by paparazzi in the street. But LeBron was all smiles and even posed in a photo with his pictoral predators, wearing the Nike Flyknit Trainer in the Volt/Black colorway; it’s likely that the pair he’s wearing is the athlete-issued Nike Medal Stand gear with the ‘USA’ stitching on the tongue, but don’t take his decision to wear his podium kicks early as a sign of too much bravado – the Flyknits are just that darn comfortable. Did any of you cop the Flyknits this past Friday? Check out a full shot of LeBron and the Flyknits below and let us know how many ‘Knits you got in your collection.
Flyknits are awesome. Those pant hems are NOT. P.s Dwayne Wade called... he wants his geeky steve urkel-looking glasses back. He must be in London trying to grab some of the HTM Lunar Knits... which because of the HTM logo on the tongue, means for some reason they are limited. Even though the only contribution i can see they've made is in adding a Lunar sole...wow! Could they not remove the HTM logo, and give us a more wide spread release of the Flyknits with the Lunar sole? Just because i for one have wide feet, and the Lunar sole would be a better fit. If nothing else. C'mon Nike... Just Do It.
