Miami Heat star LeBron James must have an entire room dedicated to his wide range of sneakers.

Indeed, he recently put 47 pairs of his own Nike shoes on eBay in a bid to raise money for his charity.

But on Sunday, while watching NFL on TV, LeBron posted a photo on Instagram of himself wearing a very colourful pair of sneakers.

To be more specific, the 29-year-old forward was wearing a pair of Kobe Bryant's Nike Prelude VI sneakers.

This came as somewhat of a surprise given the competitive nature between the two NBA stars.

But both players have deals with Nike, so perhaps it was an attempt to boost the brand.

Or maybe it was meant a respectful gesture. Or, who knows, maybe he genuinely liked the shoes.

Whatever the reason, the photo attracted over 263,000 likes from LeBron's Instagram followers.
