Earlier this year, LeBron James surpassed 30,000 career points whilst playing for the NBA, joining hall-of-fame players Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain, Dirk Nowitzki, and Karl Malone. In celebration of the achievement, renowned sneaker customiser, The Shoe Surgeon, has gifted the player possibly the most expensive sneakers ever.

Valued at over $100,000 USD, The Shoe Surgeon has decked out the popular Nike LeBron 15 sneaker. Constructed from genuine crocodile skin, the sneakers are dressed in 24 karat gold, with authentic gold-plated Riri zippers. Each zipper is made from 14 grams of 18 karat gold, and 2.32 carats of diamond-adorned lace aglets, both 5.8 carats each.

In addition to the gold model, the customiser also gifted LeBron a specially-made diamond cut necklace featuring a 30-inch 18 karat solid gold Franco chain, cut with 10 carats of genuine diamonds. The chain supports a one-of-one lion head pendant made out of 27 grams of 18 karat solid gold and elevated with 238 diamonds, each of VS/VVS clarity with E/F colour, for a total of 2.32 carats.

Now, how can we get a pair?
