We’re in the middle of trying to whittle down a field of 32 Nike LeBron sneakers to a single greatest pair in the line via our Sneaker News LeBron Madness bracket. That group features the greatest of retail releases for LeBron’s line pulled from the past ten plus years, from the Nike Zoom Generation that brought him into the league all the way up to this year’s LeBron 11. But, with the LeBron line, the unreleased samples, player exclusives, and the like, are almost as big a part of the equation.
With that, we’re filling in the gaps for each of LeBron James’ signature entries. James is without a doubt the most prominent of signature athletes in the post-millennial era – an era that’s lent itself to more and more sneaker releases for every silhouette out there. Thus, there are way more unreleased and player exclusive pairs floating around than there were for say a Jordan during his reign. Gathered here are those hits (Limited to one each for each silhouette), those pairs that at times fall through the cracks, the ones that got away and continue to fetch absurd prices on the secondary market.
