Photos: LeBron James’ Gold Nikes from the Heat-Celtics Season Opener

| by Alex Groberman

Tuesday night’s season opener was special for LeBron James, and a special night calls for special shoes. In honor of being awarded his first championship ring, the Miami Heat’s best player busted out fresh gold Nikes that even his most ardent critics had to admit were sick.

Wearing his brand new kicks, LeBron racked up 26 points and 10 rebounds in what wound up being a 120-107 victory over the Boston Celtics. 

How nice were these shoes?

Check them out in the photos below (via USA Today):

Definitely worthy of being worn by the best player in the NBA.
