To fans, the shoe may look familiar and that is because the Lebron 14 “Red Carpet” sneakers were inspired by the Nike LeBron 7 “Red Carpet” shoes that debut back in 2009.

Before LeBron James prepared to make his 13th NBA All-Star appearance on Sunday night, the athlete took to Instagram to reflect on his high school Sports Illustrated cover 15 years after it had been published, according to Give Me Sports.

Wow time sure does fly! 15 years ago to this date I was Chosen to be on the cover on SI. To me I just thought it was cool and all cause the magazine was always something my boys and I would look at and read in the library every time another issue dropped but I have no idea the magnitude of being on the cover as a high school kid would bring!! I guess that's why nothing ever fazed me cause I was so unaware of it all. Just wanted to play ball, go to school(so I could see my brothers, learn something, see some girls) and spend time with moms. Anyways I can say that I've done something right with my opportunity and life giving! #StriveForGreatness???? #TheKidFromAkron????

LeBron James was a high school sensation on the cover of Sports Illustrated as a member of the St. Vincent St. Mary’s Fighting Irish in Akron, Ohio.

James’ cover read, “The Chosen One: High school junior LeBron James would be an NBA lottery pick right now.”

A1 since Day 1 bro!! Happy to be sharing this journey with you and proud of the person you've turned out to be! Let's keep going! #MissTheRestOfTheHomiesToo #TheKidsFromAkron???? #StriveForGreatness????
