Being a bit of a sneakerhead myself, I can appreciate collaborations between the kicks industry and the auto industry. Remember a few years ago when Nike released a special-edition Kobe Bryant sneaker in collaboration with Aston Martin ?
Not to brag, but yes, I have that in my collection.
In any case, the recent LeBron 11/11 Experience held in Miami for LeBron James’ 11th signature sneaker with Nike had a pretty interesting guest during the event: a unique Lamborghini Aventador Roadster that was worked on by auto designer Rich B. Caliente in partnership with Toys for Boys Miami and Lou La Vie.
The special wrap Caliente used on the Aventador was inspired by the first signature release of the LeBron XI, called "King’s Pride." If you know the sneaker game, you might also recognize the South Beach-styled design from the Lebron X Low Championship Pack Edition.
Either way, there aren’t a lot of Lamborghini Aventadors in this world that looks as unique and eye-catching as this one. Kind of makes you wonder why somebody would take off that wrap once the event is offer. It looks awesome on the Aventador and more importantly, fits right into the laid back yet flash lifestyle Miami is known for.
