Apparently winning the NBA MVP gets you some free, special-edition shoes.LeBron James wore his brand new LeBron 9 MVP Edition sneakers in yesterday’s win over the Pacers.

Despite LeBron’s propensity for big, loud spectacles, the kicks are pretty solid — with the Miami Heat red/white/black colour scheme, white laces, and yellow details.

There are some flourishes — the MVP insignia on the heel and the tiny trophies on the insole — but they’re subtle.

A limited number of these will go on sale next month, according to Nike.
