The Nike LeBron X was the first signature shoe for LeBron James to put him head and shoulders ahead in terms of sneaker sales. In 2012 LeBron sales reached a whooping $300 million while other lines reached $50 million for Kobe Bryant, $35 million for Kevin Durant, $25 million for Derrick Rose. Back in December we mentioned how this season it’s 35% better in revenue and 18% better in units sold… despite the fact LBJ is avoiding his own shoes. The complete 2013 sneaker sales number are finally available. Things do seem to be slowing down a bit… LeBron James still leads the pack, but the numbers for the Nike LeBron line are exactly the same… $300 million. Sales for Durant’s Nike signature sneakers jumped 400% last year from $35 million to $175 million in the U.S. The rest is pretty much the same… Kobe’s still at $50 million.

Nike Basketball is paying tribute to the unique flavor of New Orleans with the 2014 NOLA Gumbo League Collection, including three shoes: LEBRON 11, KOBE 9 Elite and KD VI. A “gumbo” in the cultural sense, New Orleans is an eclectic mix of characters, music, cuisine and art. Inspired by the flavors and stories of the Big Easy, Nike cooked up a bold mix of technical innovation, aesthetic flair and old-fashioned New Orleans traditions for some of the world’s best basketball players: LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant. Inspired by the fearsome alligator, the king of the bayou, the LEBRON 11 Gator King is a bold expression of royalty and power. Gators, often a symbol of protection in New Orleans culture, influence graphic textures throughout the shoe. Invisible to the naked eye, hand-drawn patterns come to life as the Hyperposite bucket of the shoe glows in the dark. The musings of majestic color in deep purples, greens and gold are derived from the “Rex” – king of carnival celebrations. Leading the charge for Nike Basketball with special interior lining graphics is the LEBRON 11 Gator King including a commemorative tarot card and special edition box with purchase of each shoe. The 2014 NOLA Gumbo League Collection will be served up on nikestore.com and at select retail locations on February 14.Read the rest of this entry »

The Christmas colorways of Nike Basketball signature shoes are an annual tradition.

LeBron James brings the Xmas spirit to the beach with this special edition of the LEBRON 11. A chilly mint color takes on a Christmas green with bold red accents and a frosty translucent outsole.
