It’s a done deal — ‘King’ James will rule the kingdom of La-La Land next season as a Los Angeles Laker. Love him or hate him, you’d better brace yourself for more ‘Bron-related bulletins over the next few months. Will the Lakers contend again? Can LeBron win over the passionate LA fans like Kobe did? How many Lakers colourways will Nike drop before we develop an incurable purple/gold aversion? These are just some of the questions that will be answered in season 2018/19. During his second stint as a Cleveland Cavalier, LeBron delivered an inaugural NBA Championship, smashed league records and racked up a surplus of individual accolades. On-court prowess aside, however, let’s not forget there’s also been plenty of killer sneaker moments to savour. Here’s a look back at the highlight reel.
LeBron is known for sporting eye-catching signatures on court, but even he couldn't resist the minimalist charm of the John Elliott x NikeLAB Vandal High. He's since gone on to work with the renown menswear designer on an Icon collaboration, which is scheduled to drop very soon.
He’s professed to being a New York Yankees fan, but LeBron briefly hopped on the Cleveland Indians bandwagon last year. The highlight of his Indians-themed get-up? The Nike Air Zoom Spiridons. Guess this ‘King’ isn’t just about rare commodities.
LeBron has made countless statements on court with ball in hand, but these mismatched LeBron 15s made of statement of their own.
Another Happy #AirMaxDay from my Princess and I. Hey @nike Zhuri said turn her shoes into Air Maxes. 😂😂😂😂😂

Air Max Day represents one of the coolest periods of the year for so many sneakerheads, LeBron included. He's been spotted wearing everything from 'Infrared' Air Max 90s to the much-hyped Sean Wotherspoon x Nike Air Max 1/97s, but this heartwarming moment with his daughter Zhuri just had to make the cut
