Last night, on his way to Minnesota with the Cavs for today's game against the T-Wolves, LeBron James set sneakerheads' social media feeds ablaze when he posted a pair of Nikes that most people had never seen before.
The shoe was an eye-catching one with glittery elements surrounding the shoe and what appeared to be some sort of glow-in-the-dark pattern on the upper. Well, the shoe didn't stay a mystery for long as Nike recently released the pair on its Nikestore.
The Nike Air Vapor Untouchable is the answer to what 'Bron was wearing and it appears to be part of Nike's Super Bowl collection this season which they are calling "Desert Journey." The design inspiration comes from a popular Nike football cleat of the same name and features design details that may be familiar to some including an Air Trainer outsole. The glow-in-the-dark elements previously mentioned are actually UV overlays that change color in natural sunlight.
We looked at the Air Trainer III "Super Bowl" earlier today, but if you're looking for something a little more flashy for tomorrow's big game, you can head over to the Nikestore and cop these Vapors instead.
