11 Days of Nike LeBron: The Zoom LeBron IV

November 4th, 2013 by | 5 comments

nike lebron 4 history 11 Days of Nike LeBron: The Zoom LeBron IV

Our 11 Days of Nike LeBron series is back, this time touching on one of the most visually striking sneakers in James’ long history of Swoosh shoes. That would be the Nike Zoom LeBron IV that first released in the Fall of 2006. The design was bold and bulky, weighing in at a whopping 21 ounces – easily taking the title as the heaviest LeBron shoe in history. As referenced by the official name of the shoes, there was indeed full-length Zoom Air on the cushioning tip within the no-midsole construction and instead utilized a Foamposite shell that implemented a flex pattern similar to the Nike Free. The wavy upper proved that the Nike Basketball team was more than willing to switch up the shape of his shoes on a yearly basis rather than try to establish a concrete “LeBron look”, but it was clear the boot-styling was a theme that the team honed in on once again. The Nike Zoom LeBron IV was successful both in doing that and in helping inject a little bit more off-court appeal into his lineup – but is it the best LeBron shoe in history?

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.
