Like it or not, Lebron James retro sneakers are on the way! Sure nothings been confirmed yet but I see what our friends over at Nike have up their sleeve.
While on a recent road-trip to play the Knicks and Nets in New York City, Lebron busted out two never-before-seen colorways of his famous signature sneakers. The most interested part being that the kicks were the Nike Zoom Lebron II and III respectively (two sneakers that dropped in 2005 and 2006!)
Look closely at the sneakers, I mean very closely! You’ll notice Lebron’s new logo “LJ” on the heel of the 3’s and strap of the 2’s. The original model of both sneakers featured Lebron’s “L23″ logo.
Are these sneakers are just a prelude to the Lebron Retro line? I say yes! With Kobe’s already being retroed, its safe to say we’ll see a Lebron retro in the very near future. The Kings popularity is already at an all time high and the hype surrounding sneakers is as well. Nike would be smart to cash in on the oppurtunity now.
Well wait, didn’t we already see an Air Zoom Generation retro? No, the sneakers below were rumored to release around 2008 but never saw shelves. Older sneakerheads will remember they did hit Nike.com for a second but were quickly scrapped.
At this point, we’ll have to wait and let Nike make the next move reguarding a Lebron retro sneaker.
