It’s no secret to basketball fans that LeBron James is huge, standing 6 foot 8 and weighing 250 pounds. So it’s no surprise that the NBA champ, who is officially a Los Angeles Laker now, after signing a four-year, $154 million contract with the team in July, has gigantic feet to match.
James, a sneakerhead with a lifetime Nike deal, wears a whopping size 15. For reference, the average male shoe size is 10. What’s interesting, though, is that, according to Sole Collector, other ballers in the league who are shorter than the 33-year-old Akron, Ohio, native wear the same size.
Both James’ former Miami Heat teammate Dwyane Wade and Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook, who are both 6 foot 4, wear a size 15 shoe as well.
What’s more, in 2016, the superstar player posted an Instagram suggesting that his eldest son LeBron James Jr., nicknamed Bronny, had bigger feet than him already, and Bronny was only 12 at the time.
