CLEVELAND -- Baker Mayfield appears to be acclimating to Cleveland well.
One day after taking part in his first day of rookie mini-camp with the Cleveland Browns, the reigning No. 1 overall pick received an early edition of LeBron James' latest retro Nike sneaker.
Mayfield, who signed a sponsorship with Nike prior to the NFL Draft, was gifted a new pair of the Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 1 “25 Straight," which received an early release at sneaker shop Xhibition in Ohio City. The shoe is a replica of the kicks James wore in his epic 48-point performance in Game 5 of the 2007 Eastern Conference Finals against the Detroit Pistons and is a part of Nike's "Art of a Champion" series, which pays homage to some of basketball's most infamous sneakers.
The Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 1 “25 Straight" will launch on a national scale on May 31 via Nike's SNKRS app.
Mayfield also picked up a pair of the Nike LeBron 15 shoe in the 'Mowabb' colorway. The Cleveland Cavaliers' megastar has made headlines throughout the 2017-18 season thanks to perhaps the most creative installment of his signature sneaker line yet.
Also receiving new LeBron shoes on Saturday was cornerback Denzel Ward, who the Browns selected with the No. 4 overall pick in last month's draft. A native of Macedonia who spent his college career at Ohio State, Ward is no stranger to James, who is one of the Buckeyes' most famous fans.
Don't expect to see Mayfield nor Ward -- also a Nike athlete -- sporting their new kicks at Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Saturday night, however. Neither rookie will be in attendance, with Day 3 of Browns mini-camp slated for Sunday.
