Zion Williamson is inarguably the most highly touted NBA draft prospect since LeBron James in 2003. Like James, Williamson’s sneaker exploits are just as intriguing as his on-court prowess, and nearly $20,000 later, a fan now owns part of Zion’s sneaker history.
Throughout his lone collegiate season, Williamson hooped in a myriad of Nike’s signature basketball sneakers, and one of them was just auctioned off for nearly $19,200. Dressed in Duke’s signature color combination of blue, white, and black, the Nike Kyrie 5s pictured here were on Williamson’s feet during the opening round matchup of the Maui Jim Maui Invitational against San Diego State.
In these size 15 Kyries, Williamson tallied 13 points and six rebounds and led the Blue Devils to a 90-64 victory. Since then, Williamson has signed a multi-year endorsement deal with the Jordan Brand, joining a roster that included Russell Westbrook, Blake Griffin, and fellow newcomer, Jayson Tatum. Take a detailed look at the auctioned-off Kyrie 5s below.
