Air Jordan IV “LeJordan” Customs by Freaker Sneaks
The debate of “Jordan vs. LeBron” may never be put to rest, even if LeBron matches all of MJ’s achievements when its all said and done. But what we do know is that this “rivalry” of sorts started off as a young kid idolizing the game’s best, which explains why LeBron wore #23 throughout his basketball career up until his move to Miami. Sneaker customer Freaker Sneaks combined the two basketball legends (one established, another in the making) with the Air Jordan IV “LeJordan” custom, using the Air Jordan IV “Fire Red” as the base and adding some sick LeBron-centric logos around the shoe. The old “L23″ logo has replaced the Jumpman/Nike Air on the heel, while a Jumpman LeBron (wearing a Miami Heat uni) takes shape on the Flight label on the tongue (shouldn’t it have been LeBron in a Cavs uniform?). Definitely one of the more intriguing and borderline controversial customs we’ve seen to date, so check out more below and let us know if you think that after LeBron retires, his name should be regarded in the same level as Michael Jordan’s.
Lebron will never be a legend he will simply be know as the person that every one compared to MJ but could never match his career
lebron will never ever ever be as good as Michael fuck that nigga gay ass gettin pushed by niggas in game 3 and shit faggot
"But, you'll never play me like LeBron vs. Jordan. Twenty years, wonder who they gon' say was more important. Both changed the game, came through and made a lane. Who's to say that who's greater, all we know, they ain't the same"
Lebron that nigga now man stop all the HATE DAMN!!!!what ya think nobody ever going to take mj's place?c'mon man
Blasphemy? Disrespectful? I don't like the custom becuase it's terribly done in my opinion. But few were complaining when a notorious LeBron CW was applied to the AJVI (South Beach), so what's the problem now?
imagine if Lebron actually wears this, everyone will be saying how he's disrespecting MJ and sht lol
whack ass custom i've seen thus far and there was a few more customs worse than these. but this is bad, real bad.
Not bad in my opinion. I actually like them. But they could have at least gave Lebron a neck though.
Usually I joke about people stealing ideas from the flea markets but seriously I've seen this LeJordan idea a few times before. All these custom sneakers are making me wonder if its ok for people to buy the knock offs.
Lol Its really not a big deal however. IMO some things are better left alone. There are classic songs that I don't think need to be remixed/sampled and there are sneakers that don't need to have another signature athletes name slapped on them...Jordans...Kobes...Lebrons...KD's...they already have their own ish.
Disrespectful to the max!!!! Lebron name should not even be in the same sentence with MJ's.....point blank end of story!!!
I had this same idea in 2010. I was gonna patent it & sell it to Nike if LeBron went to Chicago instead of Miami. Had the designs and everything. Shit was gonna be so dope....and lucrative. But he fucked it up with "The Decision" lol
Never will Lebron be good nor will he go down in history as the next Jordan but the tonge n heel logo is some good work
Really like da logo on da tongue... Decent overall... And lebron will never b jordan. I think anybody dats knows basketball & history knows dat
There's gonna be backlash for these customs but aye the heel tab logo is ill as fuck to me...but the jumpman lol pray mercy om the heat fan who wears these during the playoffs in Chicago
@adidaskid3 lol real talk
@Trill Smith Agreed totally. Cheesy ass tongue logo. Still, it's just a Fire red 4 with couple modifications.
@Trill Smith Feel you on that Cole reference! While the man makes sense and it is a fair statement - it's really hard to give Lebron any respect with some of the shit he does. Overall, to me - Mike > Bron. Period.
NEVER... Holla at me when lebron wins sum dunk contest, def player of da yr & wins 6 rings... Undefeated in da finals, Ooooh on top retire fa 18 months, jus to come back & win 72 games in a season... Wat MJ did on & off da court cannot b matched or exceeded...
@newsouth912 a south beach colorway versus applying Lebron's logo(old) and likeness to a jordan shoe. How can you even say that those two things are the same? And besides, the south beach colorway will have always been done in its dopest on the AM 95 Miami Vice cw
@justwin Think of sneakers as a car. (How I see it. Your view could be different idk.) An ex: Let's say I decided to take my boring lookin' Mitsubishi Eclipse to West Coast Customs. Put in different body parts to it, paint job, etc.. Is my customized Eclipse now fake cuz it has different parts and paint job? It's like transforming something very boring into something very dope & exclusive. To each their own though.
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite well said
@"C.E.O." I get what cha but thats not what I'm saying. Customizing sneakers are aight but when you're calling boosters shoes fake and stealing their concepts and ideas to put on an authentic sneakers, I have a problem with that. If you're going to customize some kicks, please do so but dont steal another person's idea. Especially from a fake sneaker. that's all I'm saying.
@justwin @"C.E.O."Hahahaha... really? Where at? And the irony hahaha.... but yeah, try and keep design customs original. Me for example I keep it basic even though its hard not to keep it original. As you can see I put the "PS" logo on my AF1 Mid's. (Wish I had the original "Playstation" AF1's though) And sometimes just replicating or manipulating with designs that have already been done to AF1's in the past and putting an "O" logo on 'em since I live in Eugene, OR. If Nike or Jordan Brand won't "JUST DO IT"someone else will literally, "JUST DO IT!". XD
@justwin@"C.E.O."I understand what your trying to say lol. In fact, I remember reading an article a long time ago 'bout what people think about customs and what makes some people believe they look or appear fake to 'em. http://www.sneakerfiles.com/2011/07/16/discussion-custom-sneakers/
