The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors will be fighting for something else other than the 2017 NBA championship.

With Russell Westbrook long gone, the title of 'Style King' hangs in the balance. (Unless Kevin Durant brings back his iconic backpack or JR Smith decides to put on—or take off—his Tattoo Shirtless Shirt...)

Good thing, the superstar-studded nature of this Finals series guarantees that we have enough quality shoe games to critique, whether signature lines or custom sneakers.

Nike LeBron 13 Low Premium (LeBron James)

Carrying 'Team Red' and 'Anthracite' aesthetics, the low-top LeBron 13 can easily be mistaken for a walking shoe thanks to its suede upper and gum sole. The King will need all the maneuverability he could get against the talent-laden Warriors.

Curry 3ZERO (Stephen Curry)

It's safe to assume that it will be the 3ZERO for the two-time MVP, since no announcement has been made regarding his Finals gear. Maybe this has something to do with the Under Armour CEO revealing the Curry 3 as a sales flop in April.

'Obsidian' Kyrie 3 (Kyrie Irving)

Uncle Drew will love hitting the road in the Kyrie 3's latest colorway, which matches Cleveland's alternate jerseys. The predominant dark shade of blue allows the metallic gold Swoosh and splattered midsole to stand out.

Copping the chrome-marked white edition of his 10th sig is a bit complicated; the KD 10 will be available on Nike's SNKRS app whenever Durant plays—literally. If he's on the bench or resting during breaks, poof, the option disappears. Click here for more info.

Nike Hyperdunk 2016 PE (Kevin Love)

The sweet-shooting big man hopes the golden details on the sneaker will bring him good luck in sustaining his hot playoff streak. Love opts for the classic model (only with his logo) that reminds him of last year's triumph.

'Chase' Anta KT2 (Klay Thompson)

The same color will have different significance for Thompson, who has yet to make a splash this postseason. The gold on the KT2's newest style—available on Anta's website—represents the marksman's trophy redemption campaign.

2017 Hyperdunk (Draymond Green)

Possibly rocking an updated version of the Hyperdunk is the heart of Golden State, who was photographed in the sillhoutte during practice. Smart business decision on the part of Nike, considering how effective Green is in drawing attention.
