Oh, You Modelin' Now? See LeBron James Make His Runway Debut At New York Fashion Week

His new sneakers made the cut at Kith's show.

Published September 8, 2017

Day two of New York Fashion Week closed with Kith Sport yesterday, and guess who debuted their modeling skills on the runway? LeBron James

Kith Sport, known for bringing out some of the hottest celebs, debuted their collection of over 100 looks last night, which included collaborations with Adidas, Off-White, Moncler, Nike, and more.  VIP guests (to name a few) included Teyana Taylor, Iman Shumpert, Carmelo Anthony, and Swizz Beats. However, VIPs weren’t the only talk of the show last night, the models caught the people’s attention too. Not only did Scottie Pippen walk the runway but THE LeBron James killed the runway as well!

The Cavaliers baller made a surprise debut on the runway towards the end of the show and had show-goers losing their minds! LeBron walked out to “H.A.M” by Jay Z and Kanye wearing a hoodie layered over a plaid flannel and ankle cuffed sweats. The kith look was accessorized with a tan structured cap and of course the debut of James’s newest floral Nike LeBron 15 kicks. And as if seeing LeBron in general wasn’t enough hype, he further showed off his look by rapping Kanye’s lyrics, opening his flannel and kneeling to the floor to get the people even more lit!

Clearly, King James was feeling himself, and by the sounds of the crowd, everyone else was also feeling all 6-feet-8 of his model swag. IMG contract coming soon?!
