Richard Jefferson recently switched to wearing LeBron James’ signature Nike sneakers. The choice in footwear didn’t have anything to do with No. 24 on the Cleveland Cavaliers wanting to be like No. 23.

The reason the 35-year-old small forward opted for the LeBrons over the Nike Zoom HyperRevs he had been wearing is function over fashion. Jefferson has been dealing with pain in his left big toe, which recently required a medical injection. The wider, more durable shoe is meant to offer him more protection against reaggravating the injury.

The Cavs are considering shutting down Jefferson for another week around the All-Star break to give his toe an extended period to heal.
