What you see up there are the shoes LeBron James will be wearing next season, the Nike LeBron 9. They’ve got just about every Nike technology you can imagine — Zoom Air, Max Air, Hyperfuse, Flywire, Carbon Fiber, Pro Combat padding, other things — so they will probably be a great shoe to play in. Plus, they look nice, since red and black is always a great colorway.

But the best part is the toes, which seems weird to say, but when you see them you’ll agree.

Yep, that’s the most famous quote from “Gladiator,” which also just so happens to adorn LeBron’s arms. Nice little detail, but one of those things that will surely draw some fire since there are some seriously easy “Well, you haven’t done anything that should echo in eternity” jokes to be made.

That being said, I’m definitely on board with movie quotes on shoes. Dwight Howard’s favorite movie is “Finding Nemo” and it’s not hard to imagine him rocking a pair of sneakers with “Just keep swimming” all over them. Really hope this catches on.
