LeBron’s Back in Cleveland – Here’s What Nike Should Do

July 23rd, 2014 by | 97 comments


lebron james back in cleveland LeBrons Back in Cleveland   Heres What Nike Should Do

There are some great scenarios that could play out from LeBron’s heroic return to Cleveland. The city could possibly win a Championship while making the Cavaliers the trendy team for serviceable veterans to join, and the homegrown superstar would finally be able to shed any sort of lingering hate that may have stuck around since he first left the franchise in the Summer of 2010. On a sneaker standpoint, this means a lot as a well. While the majority of the Nike LeBron line existed in Wine Red/Gold colorways, the buzz around those LeBrons was never anything close to what it was in Miami.

Things are much different now, and even though LeBron is still numero uno at Nike Basketball, it can capitalize on Cleveland Part II in quite a number of ways because there’s something magical about an athlete playing for the “home” team. Some of what we’ve come up with may already be in the works, while others could be pipe dreams, but they’re all in the realm of realism (so let’s hope Nike is keeping an ear to the ground). Check out some of what we’ve come up with below, and stay tuned for what’s to come for the Nike LeBron series in this third chapter of his career.

Mack's rite! Lebron ain't got enough history behind him yet to push a retro,I mean he had some nice kicks but it's just to early for that. And he ain't Jordan either nuff said

Wtf how do u start the lebron retro I don't think they put out a jordan retro till the 23s came out if I'm not mistaken an he is the greatest ever tf is going on is this som hype beast shit or u guys jus makin suggestions cause y'all bored an if he did put them out it wasn't n demand like they r now so if they put out a retro lebron it won't sell I promise shit I bet money on it I fuck it I will bet my carmine 6s that a lbj retro won't sell this year or the next

@macksvolume You must be new to the sneaker community because anyone with knowledge of sneakers would know that Air Jordans first retros was in 1994 When the Air Jordan 1,2,and 3 was retroed for the first time. Jays have been retroed way before the 23 came out just stick to getting hyped when you hear your friends and sneaker websites talking about the new jordans that are sooned to be getting released. SMH hypebeasts think they have knowledge just because they got a couple pairs of heat in their closet.
