LeBron James 7 Footwear: A New Series Of Outstanding Footwear From Nike

There are very few people that can claim the supremacy of being the best salesmen in basketball footwear. As a mater of fact, there are very few basketball shoe brands that can actually be considered as the best sellers. However, when it comes to this, the king of basketball shoes ultimately has to be Nike. All the way back to 1984; they have been in the industry making all the game’s shoes that cater for whatever needs the players have.

Whether you are on the court during a game or off the court jogging, you need shoes that are easy and comfortable to wear. Two of the most influential players in the game’s history have in the past endorsed the brand leading to its immense popularity. These two players are Chuck Taylor of Converse All Stars and Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan.

This was inculcated into the industry back in 1910. These are some of the snickers that are preferred by players and fans of the game alike, especially if you really want to have the kind of performance that actually makes the game.

Sales volumes largely depend on the kind of relationships the shoe manufacturers develop and maintain with the heads of athletic bodies within the country. Also, the manufacturers have to cater for for the specific needs of interested parties; in this case players, coaches and fans, and be adequately in touch with current fashion trends to make sure that the designs they release each year are appealing to likely customers.

In spite of this, it is also very crucial that a manufacturer strives get customers and would be buyers to trust his brand. One of the ways for doing this is sufficient marketing campaigns and in this case what better way to market than to have players wear their brands during their matches to prove the toughness and comfort and to also have them attest to feel and comfort on and off the court. Converse Taylor All Stars has successfully applied this model as an effective marketing tool that has seen profits soar.

One of the other players that have made their mark in the basketball footwear industry has to be LeBron James. He actually became famous in this field while still in high school. The difference between him and the other players is that whilst they all had to wait until they started playing in the professional leagues to be famous, he beat them to it while still a young boy.

For this reason, Nike was able to sign him up to endorse their sport wear way before all the other companies were able to do so, in particular before he even made it to the pro league. They actually managed to design James LeBron footwear that he would actually wear during his play duration in the NBA.

When it comes to this game’s footwear, these have to be by far some of the names that have made it in the industry so far. To have a clearer picture, you can ask any player that has any of these wear what it feels like, and for sure, you will get the perfect answer.

The New Lebron 9 Cannon

Thank God for the upcoming Lebron 9 basketball shoe! Granted, this highly anticipated shoe hasn’t actually dropped yet, but already some of the sickest colorways ever seen are on their way. The “Scarface” and “China” will soon make their way to the marketplace in the next couple of months. And there will most certainly be many more on the way. In fact, there is a new colorway that is already creating a buzz amongst the sneaker community. A colorway that is flaunting itself down the sneaker circuit runway. The new Lebron “Cannon” colorway is in reference to the color Nike calls Cannon and is a combination of green and blue. Cannon is used on most of the shoe’s upper while slate blue covers the toe and side panels. Team Orange and Volt are used as accents on the shoelaces, heel tab, and outsole to complete the shoe.

It looks like Nike is going to make a strongly concerted effort to put more time and energy into the construction, number of colorways, and promotion of the new Lebron shoe this year. Although the last couple of years Nike has brought us some pretty sick Lebron signature shoes in equally sick colorways, this looks to be a banner year for the Lebron signature shoe. In addition to the sick colorways, the Lebron 9 offers the highest in perfomance standards that are built into a Nike shoe. For the first time on a Nike basketball shoe, the Nike Flywire and Hyperfuse technologies will be used on an upper in it’s construction. You can thank Jason Petrie and his design team over at Nike for that.

It also appears that Lebron is making a concerted effort to improve his game and be much better prepared when he and the other professional ballers do eventually hit the hardcourt. We all saw a Lebron James who was unwilling to step up and take control of games down the stretch in last season’s NBA Finals. Could playing in celebrity games address this issue. Probably not. But if it does Lebron has got that covered. Most recently King James played in the “Battle for I-95” in Philadelphia along with fellow superstars Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul. Sporting a pair of an exclusive colorway of the Nike Air Max Lebron 8 PS, Lebron led his the way with 43 points and 23 rebounds. King James did do some work that night, however, it is going to take a lot more if Lebron wants to get his first championship ring.

For now, the sneaker world has plenty of sick new Lebron 9 colorways to look forward to. This Cannon colorway and many more Lebron 9 colorways are destined to be “must have” kicks for most avid sneakerheads. This shoe is easily the best pair of Nike shoes for basketball that will be dropped in the upcoming months.

Zoom LeBron 4 (IV)

23’s a Lucky Number

With a 90 million-dollar contract with Nike, LeBron James swept in the new 2006-2007 playoff year with more amazing victories. The Cleveland Cavaliers, led by James, won their first sweep over the Washington Wizards with four straight victories. He set on to win more victories against the New Jersey Nets, advancing the team for the first time in fifteen years to the Eastern Conference Finals, and the Detroit Pistons, a victory which led them to play in the NBA Finals. Also, for the third time in a row, LeBron once again took part of the NBA All-Star game.

To be on par with the player’s outstanding performance, Nike released the Zoom LeBron 4 on the winter of 2006. With an “XXIII,” LeBron’s jersey number, designed on the front, this shoe once again captures the NBA star’s personality on-and-off the court. Like the rest of the Nike Zoom franchise, it still had the Zoom Air unit for comfortable wear and a carbon fiber shank for support. It had the general feel of a powerful and dominating shoe, just like how James was at court. Of course, it still retained the King James lion design — the tattoo LeBron has on right arm. The Zoom LeBron 4 also made use of foam technology to ensure perfect balance for the wearers and to make the shoe look nice and smooth under the court lights. Some of the available colorways are the white/Midnight Navy and the Black LeBrons.

Despite sporting a much heavier feel than previous Nike Air Zoom franchise shoes, the Zoom LeBron 4 is still a good pair for basketball players, and even for those who would want it for daily wear.
