Good Lord, Nike’s New LeBron 9 Shoe Is Orange & Green Awfulness

Perhaps some of you might disagree with my initial assessment, but that is one butt-ugly shoe. And yes, I get it: the garish choices of orange and green are Miami-inspired (Hurricanes colors), but that doesn’t excuse their excessively loud, over-the-top appearance. See, I like to keep my sneakers on the more understated, modest end of the spectrum. That’s why I have been rocking Velcro high-top kicks with heels that flash for years now. I don’t need to be out there “making the scene” when I’m dribbling the rock and missing layups by hitting the bottom of the rim. I let my game speak for itself, thank you very much.
