In April 2011, Phil gave Oprah a custom pair of Nike's LunarGlide sneakers during his first appearance on The Oprah Show. The white-and-lime-green shoe features an image of Oprah's favorite tree inside the sole, and the laces have both "Knight" and "Winfrey" printed on them. "This is going to make me want to go work out right now," Oprah says. "This is fantastic!"

The box the shoes came in was constructed from part of a school's gymnasium floor. Inside the box, Phil has inscribed one of his favorite Oprah quotes: "I still have my feet on the ground. I just wear better shoes."

The audience also went home with these custom sneakers—they will not be available to the public.
