Ohio State Possibly Wearing Special LeBron Cleats On Saturday

Ohio State wears new cleats for Ohio State.

The Buckeyes might be breaking out some new footwear on Saturday.

Ohio State's football program has yet to unveil special cleats for Saturday's game against Michigan, but it looks like at least some Buckeye players will be wearing new LeBron cleats for their clash against the Wolverines.

OSU wide receiver Corey Smith posted a picture of the black and red cleats on Snapchat.

Sole Classics, a sneaker boutique in Columbus, says the Buckeyes are wearing them. They're the Lebron Solider 10s.

The Ohio State-Michigan rivalry has an extra angle this season, as the Wolverines are now sponsored by Air Jordan, while the Buckeyes have a connection with LeBron James.

Having your team wear special cleats sporting the logo of the best basketball player on the planet has to be a decent recruiting move for Urban Meyer and Co.

Ohio State and Michigan are set to kick off at noon on Saturday. The game will be televised on ABC.
