LeBron's game-worn Nikes at the I Promise School will be auctioned for his foundation.
LeBron James' Family Foundation and the Akron Public Schools opened the doors to the "I Promise School" on Monday, which will help some of Akron’s most challenged, at-risk students with education and support, as well as educational, career and emotional support for parents.
The school, which will initially be open to 240 third and fourth graders, is tuition free and will provide students with free breakfast, lunch and snacks, as well as free uniforms and bicycles for each student. Not to mention, those who complete the program and graduate will be guaranteed tuition at the University of Akron.
The lobby of the I Promise School is also filled with 114 pairs of LeBron's game-worn Nike sneakers, all of which will be auctioned off with proceeds going back to the LeBron James Family Foundation. The winner of the auction will get his or her name printed on the wall as a nod to their contribution.
LeBron recently spoke about the sneaker auction, and surprised a classroom full of students, while giving a tour of the school. Check out the footage in the video embedded below.
