It's probably going to take some time to grow accustomed to LeBron James in a Los Angeles Lakers uniform—especially for fans in Cleveland—but the King in Purple and Gold wasn't the only notable fashion in the NBA on Thursday.

The Lakers, Chicago Bulls, Washington Wizards and Portland Trail Blazers took the floor for the first time this season, giving their players the initial chance to embrace the league's decision to lessen restrictions on shoe color. 

The result was a number of fashionable choices.

If the early action is any indication, fans will be treated to an array of impressive shoe choices throughout the season. It's just another reason to tune into the Association on a nightly basis.
