The battle for LeBron that went on between Nike and adidas was a heated one, but in the end it was Swoosh brand that came out on top when a shoe deal was confirmed before the prep-to-pro baller even played a regular season game in the NBA. It turned out to be one of the best business moves ever made by Nike, because the LeBron line is ten installments strong and no end is really in sight. So, what could have been for adidas had they secured LeBron as their next of kin? At the very least, they were a definitely a serious candidate as they were already the outfitter of LeBron’s SVSM team; many of LeBron’s high-school games were played with three-stripes gear, for which this adidas T-Mac 1 retro pays tribute to. Packer Shoes has a limited run of these re-issues in stock right now at $110, so don’t miss out on this great adidas release!
