LeBron James is living out his dreams, and he's doing what he can to help others do the same.

On Monday, the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar and Nike unveiled the LeBron Soldier 10 FlyEase. The shoe is designed with disabled athletes in mind, with Velcro straps and zippers in place of laces to eliminate the struggle of slipping them on and off.

"It's about us empowering every kid and everybody to understand that we are all athletes," the 32-year-old NBA champion said. "Myself and Nike to be able to collab on a project like this, it's been special since the very first time it was brought to the table."

In the video above, James gifts the sneakers to kids from the Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital for Rehabilitation. The father of three said no child should be deprived of sports plus the fun, laughter, competitiveness, and camaraderie that comes with it.
