The idea of being Away from Home doesn’t scare LeBron on bit. In fact, his scoring averages and minutes played are higher than when compared to his Home performances, indicating a larger dependency by the team on their superstar leaders. But that’s what a natural born leader expects – greater responsibility with a lot more ground to cover – and in his career, LeBron James has proven that any basketball court, despite its location, is where he’s most comfortable. What’s more is that LeBron is a superstar outside of the city of Miami; you’ll find Nike LeBrons on the feet of hoops fans all around the globe – even in cities where fans of local franchises actively root against the guy.
So as the “Away” LeBron 11 prepares for a release this Friday – the first Nike LeBron officially billed by Nike as an “Away” – we’ve gathered a chronological time-line of all the Black-based colorways of LeBron-branded shoes that we’ve seen on the King’s feet. Of course league dress policy has gotten much more lenient and the PE boom will probably place LeBron in special editions rather than these, but we can certainly expect these on his feet early on in the season. Continue on below for a quick timeline and stay tuned for a release of the Nike LeBron 11 “Away” this Friday, November 1st at Nike Basketball retailers.
