LeBron James owns a pair of LeBron 15 sneakers worth $100,000 (pic)
LeBron James is the proud owner of some truly original sneakers thanks to a remarkable pair of LeBron 15s that were made exclusively for him. Apparently, kicks that cost approximately $100,000 can make that happen.
Sneaker designer Surgeon Studios created the one-of-a-kind pair of shoes in celebration of James reaching the 30,000-point career milestone last season. Suffice to say, the LeBron 15s are incredibly flashy and stunningly remarkable.

James became the youngest ever to join the NBA’s 30,000-point club, and only the seventh player in league history, courtesy of a sunk jump shot during the Cleveland Cavaliers’ loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Jan. 23.

James’ accomplishment obviously merited celebration, and some outrageous sneakers certainly illustrate as much. James himself could not even downplay the significance of reaching such a milestone.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to all my family, friends, colleagues, business partners and fans for reaching out by phone, video, social media and all last night! I truly appreciate it!! We did it! #30KClub #StriveForGreatness #ThekidfromAkron

“It’s something I never set out to do,” James said of the 30K mark, via NBA.com. I’m not even a score-first guy when it comes to playing basketball. I love getting my teammates involved and seeing my teammates be excited about scoring and me getting assists. For me to sit here and be the youngest player ever to reach 30,000.”
It merits noting that in February James went on to become the first player ever with 30,000 points, 8,000 rebounds, 8,000 assists, something The King deemed as “pretty cool.” That goes without saying, but achieving that remarkable plateau did not result in a $100,000 pair of sneakers, apparently. Odds are James is perfectly content with the 30,000-point pair, though.
