The biggest sneaker endorser not named Michael Jordan of his time, LeBron James has dominated the basketball footwear market since entering the NBA in 2003. Besides powerful technology, the legacy of James’ signature Nike line will likely be storytelling through an unprecedented amount of available colorways. While the early days of the line only saw a few colorways each, the newer LeBron flagship models typically release to the public with 30 to 40 different looks, not including exclusive make-ups for children.
With so many Nike LeBrons making it to retail, even more don’t make the cut. Over the years, images of hundreds of samples and exclusives have surfaced online, giving the community of collectors a glimpse at what could have been. Highlighting some of the best LeBron samples, we’ve rounded up a gallery of 200 pairs for your viewing pleasure.
