Today is LeBron James’ 29th birthday. Seems like thing really can’t get any better for The King, who has collected numerous titles to his name including: Two NBA Championships. Two-time Finals MVP. Four-time league MVP. Nine-time All-Star. Two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and the latest AP Athlete of the Year award. And yes… he’s not even 30. His Nike LeBron signature line hit $300 million mark in sales last year and is expected to reach $400 million this year. There’s no bigger name in jersey sales either. All this and you get the sense that the best is yet to come. A couple of more years could shape one of the greatest basketball legacies we’ve ever seen. In order to say a proper Happy Birthday I’ve selected the LEBRON 10, which may become the most significant shoe is his collection and is pretty special to LBJ himself.Read the rest of this entry »
I guess the story of how LeBron James is having problems with the Nike LeBron XI is not over yet. He wore the LEBRON 11 in 4 games straight, which gave us the impression the redefined version actually works. Last night, he might have become the first person in NBA history to wear three different shoes in one game. He started in LEBRON 11 Away, but switched to LEBRON 10 Elite in second quarter in order to go back to a different LEBRON 11 (Home PE) for the second half. James continues to puzzle sneakerheads, but this time it may have been an isolated incident because he came back to 11′s… just to a different pair. What we should remember from last night’s game vs. the Hawks was James’ crunch time dunk, who claimed Paul Millsap as his latest dunk victim and an important overtime win for the Miami Heat.Read the rest of this entry »
How do you celebrate 50 straight sellouts in NBA? If you’re Draymond Green you write a special thank you message on your shoes. The Golden State Warriors celebrated 50 straight sellouts at Oracle Arena last week and Draymond commemorated the feat by writing “50 Straight. Thx Fans. Dub Nation” on his new NIKE SOLDIER VII shoes. We took a closer look at all his sneaker wears from this season and his rotation is very impressive… just like last year. Seems like, he wears more LEBRON shoes than King James himself. This season, he’s laced up a couple of LEBRON 10′s (regular and elite), the aforementioned SOLDIER 7′s and even LEBRON 11 iD’s… all in native Dub Nation colors.

LeBron James continues to use the Nike LeBron X PS throughout the 2013-14 NBA Season. Last night he wore the Finals PE colorway in a rematch of the 2013 Eastern Conference Finals vs the Indiana Pacers. In the previous game versus the Detroit Pistons he broke the Miami Home edition, which means he’s almost run out of “new” LEBRON 10 PS colorways to wear. Comparing to the 2013 NBA Playoffs he has yet to wear the White & Black version. All the other shoes have already re-appeared on the court this season. All the “kicks-on-court” information is available in the 2013-14 Timeline, which now includes a total number of wears for the Nike LeBron 11. So far King James wore them in 13 out of 88 possible quarters (22 games).
Nothing has been officially confirmed, but LeBron James is still searching for the right fit with the Nike LeBron XI. It’s no secret he’s a huge fan of the Zoom Max cushioning setup used in the LEBRON X PS, which combined with his custom orthotics is far more challenging to get with the Lunarlon & Zoom Air tooling. It’s good to know he’s chosen comfort over marketing. That’s a smart play especially with the three-peat on the horizon. Last year’s LEBRON 10 was a big hit on and off the courts helping Nike Basketball reach the $300 million mark in sales for 2012, which was attributed to a huge sales boost for the LeBron X. Has James’ decision to play in “old shoes” negatively affected sales of the LEBRON 11? No! According to Matt Powell of SportsOneSource there’s a 35% increase in revenue and 18% increase in units sold in comparison to the LEBRON 10 during the same time period last year. The price difference ($200 vs. $180) explains the large money differential, but the units increase is far more impressive piece of news. About 150k units have been sold thus far and the Parachute Gold version was the largest release to date.Read the rest of this entry »
After trying out the LEBRON 11 in nearly 5 straight quarters throughout games versus Phoenix and Cleveland, King James is back to wearing the LEBRON X PS Elite. While new questions regarding the Nike LeBron XI arise with each day, I wonder if fans would like to join LBJ and get on the LEBRON 10 PS bandwagon. Nike Basketball has not been able to resolve the situation, or provide an explanation, however, they could restock LeBron’s old kicks on Nike iD. Apparently it’s an awesome basketball shoe. Usually, new kicks replace the previous model, but I think it would be a good idea to restock the LeBron X P.S. Elite alongside the LeBron XI. I have a feeling some fans would really appreciate another chance to design a pair. I know I would. Continue reading and take a closer look at my latest Nike iD build titled “4x MVP, 2x Champ” sporting a classic Miami Heat look.Read the rest of this entry »
Personally, I don’t like revisiting the memory of the Championship Pack because it was a painful experience as a LeBron James fan. Nike Basketball executed the pack nicely, however, by making it nearly impossible to get they denied us a true celebration. The 2013 Championship Pack consists of two shoes – LEBRON X PS Finals and LEBRON X Low Floral. Rumors about the so called Reverse Championship pack materialised when the Red Finals low-tops surfaced the web last month. Now we have the missing part… the LEBRON 10 PS dressed in the Floral theme. Supposedly these are VERY rare hence the blurry look. Below, there’s an additional image showing one of the custom versions.Read the rest of this entry »
LeBron James debuted new, “old” shoes last night. In the past three games he wore three different colorways of the Nike LeBron X P.S. Elite. This time there was no switching from the LeBron 11. In last night’s game he sported the Grey, Black and Red PE, which he had initially debuted in the 2013 NBA Playoffs. Seeing all these great Player Exclusives styles makes me regret Nike didn’t decide to release any of them. Maybe it’s a good idea to do this now since King James decided to stick with the old shoe? What do you think?
