As a tennis player, finding comfortable sneakers for his feet is extremely important to Roger Federer, and understandably so.
Federer had some time off on Tuesday as he prepares for his upcoming quarterfinal match in the U.S. Open, so he decided to buy some shoes — eight pairs, to be exact.
One of the eight pairs happened to be LeBron James’ “LeBron 8 South Beach.” The signature shoe has been a hot item for awhile now, and Fed referred to them as “the classic South Beach LeBrons.”
LeBron was honored by Federer picking his shoes. Here’s what he had to say about it on Instagram.
Here’s the caption that accompanied the post:
Not sure about Federer being the GOAT — Rafael Nadal is pretty great himself — but it’s great to see athletes supporting fellow athletes.
