If you have seen any of the Cleveland Cavaliers games this season, you have most likely noticed Lebron James coming to the scorer’s table before the game begins and performing his pre-game ritual of rubbing chalk on his hands and throwing the excess chalk into the air. The chalk is meant to give players added grip on their hands and it is used by most players in the NBA, though not in the same way as Lebron James. Inspired by James’ unusual pre-game ritual, Nike has decided to design a colorway of the Nike Zoom Lebron VI commemorating the ritual. Featuring a navy blue patent leather toebox and canvas upper, a “hardwood” colored midsole, and a silhouette of Lebron James throwing chalk into the air on the tongue, this sneaker combines the Cleveland Cavalier’s team colors with Lebron’s unique pre-game ritual to yield an interesting colorway of Lebron’s newest sneaker, the Nike Zoom Lebron VI. There is no release date as of yet, but be sure to stay tuned for updates! Via NikeBasketball.
You can check out Lebron James rocking this pair on Christmas Day, December 25th, when the Cleveland Cavaliers face off against the Washington Wizards at 8PM EST on TNT.
