If you ever venture out to Asia and get the opportunity to shop around at Nike Basketball retail spots, you’ll notice that the selection of footwear is quite different from the Foot Lockers and Finish Lines you see here. Aside from the signature basketball shoes like LeBron and Zoom Kobe, the Asia market has an interesting selection of take-down models, like the Zoom Kobe Venomenon and Dream Season and the LeBron Ambassador. This other LeBron-branded model called the Nike LeBron ST Low is another Asia-exclusive model that has never stepped foot at U.S. chain retailers; it features a lot of borrowed elements from the LeBron 8, like the Lion logo on the tongue, the V/2-like upper, and the figure-8 window on the outsole. These two colorways featured the basic ‘Bred’ combination and the ‘Solar Red’ vibe, as seen the V/2 Low that released last year. It’s always interesting to see what other LeBrons and Kobes are out there, so check out the gallery below and let us know if you’d open to non-signature models bearing the newest NBA Champion’s name like this LeBron ST Low.

Nike LeBron ST Low
To rock? No. To use for exercise? Yes. I like it. Even though people hate stuff like this(Team Jordan type stuff), I can deal with it. Those are the shoes you use to beat around in.
the whole point of these is to fit the market in china. nothing but kids playing outside. the toe having that huge amount of rubber is for durability. you see videos of these kids in boots hooping.
I could fux wit theses , especially that solar red like model , that said these should be making there way to eBay at a 400% markup real soon
lol Kobe has his non signature Nike shoes too. But these really jus look like a 8 low sample with a different sole
