Although nobody will ever reach the monumental level of success the Nike and Michael Jordan collaboration has seen, LeBron is informally known as the only one who will ever come close. After coming out of a bidding war between Nike, Reebok and Adidas, the basketball superstar eventually decided to sign with Nike at the young age of 18 (in a contract reportedly worth $90million) and has released countless styles of LeBron basketball shoes and other LeBron sneakers with the sportswear giant since.
After winning his first NBA championship in 2011, LeBron James and Nike released the Nike LeBron X to critical and commercial success. With key features including zoom air, flywire security, superior ankle support it’s incredibly well constructed for those looking to use them during sporting activities making them a favourite among athletes and sneakerheads alike.
Undeniably as a result of the LeBron X, he topped the list of highest selling sneaker collaborations among his fellow NBA players in 2013.
When playing for his school basketball team at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, LeBron was accumulating a lot of attention from the local, and eventually, national press due to his superior sporting skills and capability on the court. On graduating, a bidding war between major sportswear brands began, with Nike eventually sigining the star for a reported $90million.
Since then, he’s won several championship and countless awards and accolades. The continued success both on the court, and commercially with Nike LeBron’s led to them securing a record breaking lifetime contract deal worth over $1billion.
