The "LeBrnold Palmer 9 Lows" basketball shoes
By mustang6560 on 7/13/12
As Jonathan Wall points out, LeBron James named his new Nike basketball shoe line after golf legend Arnold Palmer.
LeBron James tweeted: "LeBronold Palmer 9 lows ‪#yikes‬"
It appears Nike is testing the waters by having LeBron tweet a picture of the prototype basketball shoes. As cool as it would be to drink an Arnold Palmer after a pick up game of basketball wearing my LeBronld Palmer 9 Lows, the Company isn't about to invest millions of dollars to produce the shoes if no one is going to buy them.

Is the bottom right picture showing the inside of the shoe? Seriously an Arnold Palmer drink where those stinky feet have been? I don't know what they are thinking but when I see folks spending thousands of $ on sneakers, I don't know what to think either... This is just awful and I can't believe that Arnold would lend his name to this!

Thanks, I just lost my lunch on my shoes, and now they look just like those.

The story is actually real...Lebron should stick to playing basketball because he sucks arse as a designer.

Oh, and keeping his mum away from his team mates.

Low blow, mwfaith, low blow.

Are we sure those aren't suppose to be Mrs. Palmer's shoes?
Torleif Sorenson says:
LeBron James has a serious judgmental impairment; first he does an ego-maniacal, self-serving, 60-minute ESPN special to tell his fans where he's going to sign a contract... and now this. Just looking at those shoes give me a headache.

What on God's green Earth were Phil Knight and his marketing people thinking?
Torleif Sorenson says:
Those shoes belong on a re-make of TV's "Miami Vice" - not in a sports venue.
