The simple, team-based colorways will no longer suffice for a signature sneaker line. Sure any given player shoe is going to be equipped with the colors of the player’s team at the time, but the hungry market has demanded a load of releases that extend beyond the simple “Home” and “Away” make ups. The Nike LeBron line has always answered that call with creative pairs that speak to LeBron’s personal history, his trials, tribulations – even his favorite cereal at times. And ever since he took his talents to South Beach, the Florida-inspired colorways have been a key part of that equation.
LeBron’s move to Miami was the beginning of an entirely new chapter in his career and his life, so it only makes sense that Nike would respond with a yearly set of shoes reflecting his new home. That move also coincided with a new era in his sneaker line – LeBrons 1-6 are certainly celebrated amongst dedicated LeBron fans, but it wasn’t till the 7, 8, and onward that they started consistently making noise. Gathered here are those shoes, which come with all sorts of colors and graphics, that somehow make a connection to Miami and Florida at large where King James rests his head.
