LeBron James and Nike released LeBron’s signature series clothing line just in time for the Holiday season. For Holiday 2011 basketball superstar LeBron James gets the Nike Sportswear collection treatment with a series of iconic Nike silhouettes adorned with some personal storytelling.
Despite not winning an NBA Championship, LeBron has handled the pressure well. He continues to lead all basketball players in overall sales of his sneakers, the LeBron 9.
The standout piece in an all-wool LeBron Destroyer Jacket, similar to the version LeBron wore last season during his first return to Cleveland following his move south-east.
Vivat Rex “long live the king” is embroidered on the inside of the jacket, with LeBron’s Nike Sportswear ‘Lion 6’ logo beautifully adorned on the sleeve.
In addition to the jackets and rugby shirts, LeBron James and Nike have several other items like hoodies, shorts and more.
The message Virescit Vulnere Virtus’ sits boxed in the bottom translated as “courage becomes greater through the wound.” The jacket is made from 100% recycled wool. The additional pieces, which tell a similar tale, are the FZ AW77, striped and block color black and red tees and the rugby shirt.
The sash that sits on the 1823 design is inspired by one of LeBron’s early teams, ‘The Shooting Stars’, where he first met some of his best friends who went on to star with him as a high school player. Streetball covers the latest basketball news and fashion for the upcoming Holiday season. Make sure to check out all of the gear from LeBron James and Nike.
