The Wall Street Journal Considers LeBron’s Current Signature Swap

LeBron James‘ Nike shoe sales are up 18% from last year, but the King himself isn’t sold. Consistently this season in Kicks On Court wearing last year’s Nike LeBron X, James isn’t completely comfortable in this year’s Nike LeBron 11. He has only worn his latest model for an entire game twice this season. Listed at 6 foot 8 and 250 pounds, the four-time NBA MVP has different requirements of his shoes than an average consumer. It’s not that LeBron doesn’t like his new design, it is just that he is a perfectionist in every aspect of his game and wants his shoes to follow suit.

Nike is currently in the process of making all of the necessary tweaks needed, and looks forward to King James wearing the LeBron 11s exclusively very soon. Despite the endorser’s stamp of approval, the LeBron 11 is still outselling the LeBron Xs from last year at this same point. The Wall Street Journal recently investigated the surprising storyline in detail, which includes a video report that you can see at the Wall Street Journal. Tell us what you think of LBJ and his sneaker dilemma in the comment section underneath, and keep refreshing Nice Kicks for all of your sneaker news and information.

Nike reveals the Kobe 9 Elite Sneaker

nike kobe 9 elite 1 Nike reveals the Kobe 9 Elite Sneaker

Not since 2007 have Nike designer Eric Avar and Kobe Bryant come together on a signature shoe, so the anticipation of this Kobe 9 Elite sneaker has been high. The Kobe 9 Elite is purported to be a high-top sneaker that plays like a low, with a notable element being the first usage of Flyknit on a basketball shoe. Dynamic Flywire has been introduced for added support while a carbon fiber heel counter provides lateral support. A nice touch is the nine embroidered marking along the heel as a nod to Kobe’s Achilles surgery. Seen here in the “Masterpiece” colorway, the Nike Kobe 9 Elite is set to be available February 8, 2014.

Vans California Era 59 “Pebble”

vans california era 59 pebble 06 570x424 Vans California Era 59 Pebble

Two months ago, Vans California issued a Mid Skool duo united by their use of a pebbled leather on the uppers.  The same material also works perfectly on lowtops, as evidenced by this new Vans California Era 59.  Featuring a black color called ‘Shadow’, these Era 59s are made of a visibly soft leather and add golden brown accents and corded boot laces just like the Mid Skools.  Check them out up close with several more angles after the jump, then find yours in stock at select Vans CA retailers like Politics.
