LeBron James, Scottie Pippen hit runway at fashion show (pics/vid)
LeBron James and Scottie Pippen made a foray into the runway model world Thursday by making an appearance on the catwalk during the KITH fashion show in Manhattan’s Classic Car Club.
The New York Fashion Week show allowed James to model his new Nike LeBron 15 sneakers while Pippen showcased an updated version of his classic Nike Air Pippens.
The scene at the fashion show, specifically as it pertains to the two NBA icons, via the New York Post:
First up: Scottie Pippen. After several themed vignettes in which models rocked collaboration threads from Nike, Moncler and Adidas, the former Bulls forward walked the runway solo. A single spotlight highlighted his look — a black-and-white sweatsuit with zebra-print trim and leopard-print kicks from his collaboration with Kith.
Not long after, LeBron James took to the catwalk in a flashier fashion. Beneath strobe lights, the Cavalier forward showed a plaid jacket with a hoodie layered underneath, velour pants and floral-embroidered sneakers from his own Kith collab.
