LeBron James Chalk Shoe

December 25, 2008

Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James will be wearing a special ‘Chalk’ edition of his signature Nike series of shoes during the Christmas night face off against the Washington Wizards.

The new version is a tribute to LeBron’s pre-game ritual of tossing hand rosin into the air above the scorer’s table, before Cavaliers start playing.

Nike will provide packets of confetti for fans to throw along with James, who began the routine a few years ago.

The “Chalk” shoe is the ninth edition of James’ Zoom LeBron VI line. Last month, he wore a “Big Apple” model of the shoe when the Cavs played in New York. The new shoe includes a silhouette of James’ chalk toss on the tongue.

James and almost 20,000 fans will gather in the Quicken Loans Arena to carry out the ritual together.

“(Nike and I) have a deep relationship,” James said Sunday when the Cavs beat the Thunder, 102-91, for their third consecutive victory. It is not just an endorsement deal. We feed off each other; if we think something will be hot or people can relate to, we work on that.”
