Complete Visual History of the Nike LeBron James Shoe Line

Complete Visual History of the Nike LeBron James Shoe Line

When Nike took a $90 million dollar chance on a 18-year-old kid, fresh out of high school, people questioned the decision. No, not that decision. Was Nike so desperate to find a replacement for Michael Jordan, that they would throw millions at anyone? Didn't they learn their lesson from all the the other "next" Michael Jordans?

Well, even as a teenager, LeBron James was not just anyone and the lucrative endorsement deal made him a multi-millionaire before he was even drafted. This oft-criticized contract looks downright reasonable many years later and although he has not replaced Michael Jordan, LeBron James is as close as anyone has ever been. To be clear, Michael Jordan will never be replaced, but at his current pace, James may one day stand alongside him.

The following list details each of the yearly signature LeBron James shoe offerings from Nike. The chronological listing includes an image of the shoes as well as an image of LeBron James wearing the shoes in-game. The specific NBA season for each edition is also included.

It is important to note that only one main release is covered for each season. The list does not include the many colorways, Soldier and Ambassador variations, or the low-top versions of the LeBron James shoes that have been released.
