LeBron has been wearing incredibly rare sneakers to practice for the NBA Finals

LeBron James isn't just Nike Basketball's premier signature athlete, he's also a sneakerhead at heart. And he's been breaking out some incredibly rare heat on practice days at the NBA Finals.

First up was this player edition of the Air Zoom Generation that was never released to the public. It was made to commemorate his Rookie of the Year season, and had his per-game averages of "20-5-5" embroidered on the side.

We then saw James break out a pair of LeBron 12 lows that were made to commemorate his appearance in the movie "Trainwreck," and were given only to friends, celebrities and a few others associated with the production. 

Next was an all-red edition of the Nike Zoom LeBron IV, and this one was interesting for two reasons. One, it's a colorway that's never been seen before, and two, it features LeBron's newest logo across the strap -- indicating that it may have been manufactured recently, and possibly teasing us with the idea that a retro line of LeBron's sneakers could be on the way in the not-so-distant future. 

Finally, LeBron was seen lacing up a Nike Zoom LeBron III that was yet another player exclusive.

The Cavaliers may not be able to beat the Warriors in the NBA Finals, but LeBron unquestionably has things locked up where the sneaker game is concerned.
