The Colorado Buffaloes will open the season with some new footwear courtesy of Nike. A newly-debuted look of the Diamond Turf, which was made famous by Deion Sanders during the height of his NFL career.

Coach Prime showed off the new style yesterday and piqued the interest of LeBron James. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar commented about a possible sneaker swap with Sanders on his Instagram.

James grew up a two-sport athlete and spent time on the football field. In fact, he was considered Ohio’s top HS football prospect. There was also a point in his 21-year NBA career when he considered trying out of the Cleveland Browns. If there was anyone who could do both professionally, “The King” would be a top pick.
