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.

nike lebron witness history exhibit Nike LeBron PE Display for Witness History Tour

While the Jordan Brand athletes head out to China and Kobe enjoys some downtime in Europe, LeBron James and Nike has decided to hit up the Philippines for a special “Witness History” Tour, which features some cool in-store events as well as some live demos of the King on a basketball court. His time out there has already resulted in a couple of killer sneaker exhibits, including that set of incredible customs and this, a collection of player exclusives and rare pairs from King James’ career (definitely some gems in here, most of which can be seen in Justin Amazing’s collection). Starting all the way back at the Nike Air Zoom Generation, the display includes hard to track down fare like the Nike Zoom LeBron IV “Fruity Pebbles”, the “Denim” Nike LeBron 8, and the not-quite-player-exclusive Nike LeBron X “MVP”. See the sneakers after the jump and let us know if you own any of these rare LeBrons, and stay tuned for more recaps from Nike and Jordan Brand’s plans overseas.

Four LeBron James MVP Awards, Four Nike MVP Sneakers

May 7th, 2013 by | 10 comments

lebron james nike mvp sneakers Four LeBron James MVP Awards, Four Nike MVP Sneakers

LeBron James joined one of the most exclusive classes in NBA history when he was awarded the 2012-2013 Kia NBA MVP trophy this past Sunday. His fourth award rightfully places his name alongside other legends like Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Wilt Chamberlain, and what’s even more impressive is that LeBron has the potential to win more MVP trophies down the road and perhaps end his career with the most in NBA history (he would need seven to do so – Kareem’s got six). But in 2013, what separates LeBron from the rest is that his signature shoe line has grown rapidly since he won his first trophy, with Nike fashioning a special edition version of each signature shoe model (MJ had a signature line, but never a solo “MVP” colorway).

Nike LeBron VII “Deion Sanders Heroes Pack” – Available on eBay

November 30th, 2012 by | 5 comments

deion sanders lebron vii 7 Nike LeBron VII Deion Sanders Heroes Pack   Available on eBay

Another 10-15 years down the line, a future NBA star will point to LeBron James being one of his basketball heroes, and maybe then LeBron’s name will be mentioned for a future ‘Heroes Pack’ of sorts. But keeping things in this generation, this contemporary ‘Heroes Pack‘ that first rose with the Air Max LeBron VII is a tribute to Deion Sanders, one of LBJ’s idols; while Deion never played pro basketball, his on-field swagger and intensity made him an exemplar for success, and perhaps Deion is a reason why LeBron is the megastar he is today. These PEs rarely come across our eyes, so peep the new gallery below and see what the asking price is on the listing from raymondckngan on eBay.

The LeBron 8 and 9 has seen heavy use in the custom sneaker circuit, but that same can’t exactly be said for the Air Max LeBron VII. The first of the Jason Petrie era and the last of the Cavs period, the Air Max LeBron VII is the sneaker that really pushed the Nike LeBron into new heights, kicking things off with the energetic ‘Red Carpet’ colorway. Such a punchy combination of aqua blue, white, black, and a hint of red has never been tampered with until now, as Laptop Lasane brings a ‘flipped’ version of the Red Carpet featuring a primarily Red/Aqua upper with black accents. Your thoughts on this custom? Make your judgements after flipping through the gallery below.
