Assuming LeBron James makes the All-Star Game this year — believe me, this limb that I am out on is terrifying — his feet are going to look awesome. That’s because the Swoosh is hooking him up with an extra special version of the Nike LeBron 9. They’re called the “Big Bang” and they’re pretty much the best.

Maybe it is just because orange is my favorite color and I am wearing orange shoes as we speak, but I love these a lot. They’re super flashy which is what everyone does in the All-Star Game but they’ve also got other little things thrown in that make them even cooler. We’re talking galaxy-ed shoe lining and liners. We’re talking about reflective hits on the uppers. And we’re talking about a glow-in-the-dark sole, which looks really great.

Admittedly, you might not be a fan of these. You might think orange is the worst color ever(wrong), you might think these are too flashy (valid) or you might hate the solar system (weird). These are all legit concerns and I totally understand where you are coming from. However, if you’re in to loud shoes every now and then, I think you’ll really like these.

No release details yet, but if you’re dying to get your feet on these, Marquee Sole has ‘em from $239.99 to $259.99. That’s way too much to pay, but I totally understand if you want to make a power move to get these.

  1. Ummmm Lebron will be selected for the East all star team, so he will be wearing a blue shoe. Not a orange one. These aren’t his all star show Trey.

  2. But orange on blue looks generally cool ;-)

  3. Derrick Rose, an Eastern Conference All-Star, wore bright yellow shoes last year.

  4. True. Guess I just don’t like the idea of a non specific all star shoe. Plus the blue looks awesome on the 9′s :)

  5. No one cares about Derrick Rose, quit being such a Bulls Homer.

  6. the ballots haven’t even been tallied. a little presumptuous of nike and lebron.

  7. joking, by the way.
