Nike Basketball Signatures of Christmas Past

nike basketball christmas shoes Nike Basketball Signatures of Christmas Past

The tradition of special Christmas colorways for signature sneakers is one of the longer running ones with respect to Nike Basketball. That day has consistently been an important one for footwear enthusiasts thanks to the countless energy colorways and the occasional brand new model debuted during the Christmas day games. The theme has, out of necessity, evolved over the years beyond the standard red, white, and green. Just take a look at this year’s shoes for example; you’ve got the LeBron 11 featuring a snowflake decal, the KD 6 with Fair Isle sweater style graphics, and a Kobe 8 with scales practically jumping off the body of the shoe. The Christmas sigs by Nike have evolved from much simpler forms of previous years, and we can only expect the Swoosh to get even more festive in coming years.

11 Days of Nike LeBron: The Air Max LeBron VII

November 7th, 2013 by | 10 comments

lebron 7s 02 11 Days of Nike LeBron: The Air Max LeBron VII

With today’s entry into our 11 Days of Nike LeBron series we enter into the territory that’s probably still fresh in your memory. November 7th shines the spotlight on the Nike Air Max LeBron VII – the first LeBron signature to utilize visible Air Max. The sneaker marked another huge success for the Nike LeBron line, one brought on in no small part thanks to the work of Jason Petrie, a Nike designer who would go on to take over James’ line in the years to follow. One of the biggest tech differences this time was the removal of the Zoom treatment in favor of Nike’s patented Air Max cushioning, introducing to the world the first basketball-specific full-length Air unit. It was equally important from a tech and aesthetic standpoint; all of a sudden the sneaker was riding on a gigantic, aesthetically pleasing, full length Max Air bubble. The upper was unlike previous iterations as well thanks to the linear Flywire treatment that criss-crossed its main section – another first for the LeBron line.

Chamber of Fear to Terracotta Warrior: The History of Nike LeBron “China” Editions

lebron china sneakers Chamber of Fear to Terracotta Warrior: The History of Nike LeBron China Editions

LeBron James emerged as a phenom in Akron as a nationally-recognized player for St. Vincent – St. Mary. He became a superstar in Cleveland, winning MVPs and Gold Medals with the Cavaliers. In Miami, he became a Champion, leading the Heat to two straight. LeBron James’ rise to legend-status can be tracked by specific regions, but here in the U.S., we often forget LeBron’s meteoric rise to fame in China, where the basketball crazed country has made the world’s best ballers like Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant into god-like beings. LeBron James definitely belongs in that club, and over the last decade, Nike has taken a concerted effort in bringing a special treat to a country boasting the largest population in the world.

Nike LeBron Black Collection Display at Nike WHQ

August 14th, 2013 by | 3 comments

nike lebron black collection display whq Nike LeBron Black Collection Display at Nike WHQ

LeBron James spent some time on August 13th traversing the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, OR by foot and by bicycle, making some pit-stops at a LeBron sand sculpture (yes, the Portland area has sand) and an interesting display inside the WHQ walls. Ten years of Nike LeBron greatness were up for viewing, with each of LBJ’s signature models individually encased along a straight line makeshifting a metaphorical road to the Nike LeBron 11. The entire set was in an all-black format – some of which we’ve seen before, some not at all, but all amazing. With two NBA Titles, two Olympic Gold Medals, four NBA MVPs, and a Dunk Contest Trophy already under the man’s belt, it seems timely for Nike to embark on a LeBron retrospective of some sort, and we can most certainly expect a story-line with the debut of the LeBron 11.

Like it or not, this interesting display brings us back yet again to the topic of the Nike LeBron Retro. If you compare the trajectory of the Air Jordan and the Nike LeBron, you’d realize that the two could not be more different. Air Jordans made their Retro debut in 1994 when MJ was thought to be done with the game, while LeBron James has shown zero signs of desire to hang ‘em up earlier than usual. More importantly, the Air Jordan line was all about sleek and stylish design opposed to the Nike LeBron, which is revered for its robust innovative upgrades like Dynamic Flywire, Hyperfuse, full-length Zoom and much, much more. ┬áSo while it would be nice for Nike to celebrate ten years of LeBron in some way, is a bringback of the early models – namely the Air Zoom Generation that LeBron himself wore just a few days ago – the way to do it? There’s more to come for sure, so check out the video that LeBron James himself took for his IG followers and let us know what your expectations are for a LeBron Retro movement.
