Looking closely at CJ McCollum’s sneakers during the Portland Trail Blazers game against the Chicago Bulls, one might have noticed a neutral brown upper contrasted with a festive sole and festooned with food icons across the back. The special Thanksgiving colorway of McCollum’s Li-Ning Speed VI Premium garnered a mention in Nick DePaula’s round-up of best kicks on ESPN. Team insider Casey Holdahl went so far as to recruit his wife’s tablescaping skills for a special photo shoot.
Been admiring @CJMcCollum’s stable of @LiNingHoops Speed VI Premium lately, but this “Thanksgiving” colorway takes the spice carrot cake. I will buy any sneaker with food icons. pic.twitter.com/RIZsdTMLyQ— Casey Holdahl (@CHold) November 27, 2019
The fans of Hallmark movies on the Blazer’s Edge staff are left hoping for a Christmas-themed pair.
