The LeBron Series Revived Nike Basketball Signature Lines
Jordan signature shoes had transitioned to being under Jordan Brand by the 1996-97 season. The popular Penny line had also seen the best days come and go by the mid to late ’90s. Nike had a stable of athletes that they endorsed, and some, such as Vince Carter, had signature lines in the early 2000s that were not highly successful. At the time, team bank Nike Basketball sneakers were more prevalent. However, Nike signed James to a seven-year $93 million contract in May 2003. The LeBron line included playoff edition spinoffs, low cut versions, a Zoom Soldier series, and has crossed over to the lifestyle/off-court arena without wavering in popularity. One could argue that the LeBron’s is the most consistently successful Nike Basketball signature line to date.
