Fit For a King
It's no secret to the sports world that LeBron James is an athletic freak of nature. King James stands at 6'8 and weighs 250 pounds, while still having the ability to run the floor like a point guard. His combination of size, strength, and speed made him one of the most hyped NBA prospects ever. After inking a deal with Nike fresh out of high school, James needed a shoe that would not only help him live up to the billing but also would complement his unique skills.
James' first signature model, the Nike Air Zoom Generation, released in 2003. Before it was created, James collaborated with Nike designer Aaron Cooper on what he wanted from his shoes. His message was simple; comfort. Well, when you're considered the new face of Nike Basketball, ask and you shall receive. The Air Zoom Generation featured a full-length Zoom Air unit and a double-stacked heel to stand up to the pounding from James' massive frame. As the story goes, during James' first wear test, he jumped a few times and said they were the most comfortable shoes he had ever worn. That was just the beginning.
Finding His Style
James' shoes always have had personal details as a way to pay homage to his background in Akron, Ohio. His first shoe had visible features inspired by the Hummer H2 he famously received as a birthday gift from his mother when he turned 18. The LeBron V had a milk crate pattern, which resembled the milk crate he used to shoot buckets as a kid. Every shoe was like a new way for James' story to be told.
When the LeBron X hit the shelves, it introduced a new stylistic direction that has since become the go-to look for James' shoes. It was inspired by diamonds, which symbolized the long journey of James to become an NBA champion. Despite all the new technologies that are introduced into his shoes, this new silhouette has been seen in each new model since.
However, as the style of the shoes has changed dramatically over the years, the core functionality has not. Over 12 years after their initial release, James still prefers the Zoom Air cushioning to deliver that comfort he's desired since day one.
As James' career has progressed, the accolades have begun to pile up. He's already won multiple NBA championships, MVPs, and Finals MVPs. His on-court success has resulted in his personal brand continuing to grow. His shoes are annually one of the best-selling and most demanded in the market. Nike also has released a low version of the LeBrons to offer more of an off-court appeal.
Regardless if you're a baller seeking high-performance shoes to up your game, or an avid sneakerhead just looking to rock a hot off-court style, James' signature shoes have been delivering since the first one was released. And with many years of basketball still ahead, James' career and legacy are far from over.
