This Day in Sneaker History: LeBron Signs Record-Setting Deal with Nike

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read ourĀ disclosure policy.

Ten years ago today, LeBron James was made the crown prince of Nike at only 18 years old. Reigning now as the king of hoops and an ambassador of sportswear, James made history in 2003 with his record-setting $93 million contract. While the seven-year deal was certainly fruitful for Nike and LeBron, some sneakerheads would say that it really started kicking in the last year, when the Air Max LeBron VII released. In 2010, LeBron and Nike inked another seven-year contract with payment details undisclosed, but estimated at $15 million a year. Since LeBron signed with Nike ten years ago today, what has been your favorite LeBron shoe and commercial? Tell us in the comment section.
