LeBron James introduced his latest shoe, which features a lot of pastels among its available color combinations and will reportedly cost $200, on Tuesday. What was most notable about his press appearance wasn’t the shoes, though, but the sudden advancement of his hairline (see above). LeBron is on TV all the time, so his male-pattern baldness had been widely noted, partly because of the comic contrast between his middle-aged-looking head and the peak perfection of the rest of his body. That contrast might be a thing of the past. No word yet on what means James might’ve used to attain the sharpened-up look.
