Nike x LeBron James

Nike LeBron History Deal
Marmon Sports

Even since LeBron James’ high school days, he had caught the attention of large sportswear companies. Believing him to be the next Michael Jordan, he was offered various deals from many hot-shot companies.

Nike, however, refused to let the opportunity slip and offered LeBron a risky $90 million deal. LeBron proved to be legit and the deal paid off massive dividends for the Swoosh in terms of the worth of LeBron’s shoe which reached over $1 Billion and counting.

LeBron received his first signature sneaker in 2004, called the LeBron Zoom II. After that, an array of sneakers have dropped including the latest LeBron 18 LA By Night and Day and even the recent LeBron 18 James Gang

These sneakers celebrate The Los Angeles Lakers and their return for the 2020-2021 season. They also celebrate LeBron James’ dominant 18 years in the industry. To estimate resale for the Nike LeBron 8 Lakers, let me walk you through some history.

Nike LeBron 8 Gym Red

Retail Price: $180

Peak Resell: $390

Release Date: 11/06/2020


The Nike LeBron 8 returned for the first time, sporting a vibrant red upper that’s highly reminiscent of the retro “Gym Red” LeBron 8 which was limited to just 600 pairs in China.

These sneakers feature molded tongues, black Swooshes, golden hits on the eyelets and tongues, and a black midsole. Interestingly, the outsole features a green glow in the dark detailing.

On StockX, the average selling price is $270 which is a gross profit of $90 per pair. I believe the Nike LeBron 8 Lakers will likely have a similar resale value.

Retail Price: $180

Estimated Resell: $290

Release Date: December/15/2020


This Nike LeBron 8 features a primarily purple upper that’s constructed with tumbled leather with a Flywire synthetic base. Yellow overlays all over the sneaker provide a pleasant contrast, giving the sneaker a regal look that’s complimentary to LeBron’s “King James” moniker.

An embossed tongue with James’ Lion logo adds another layer of neat detailing while the yellow eye stays and ‘Swoosh’ provide contrast. There’s also a full-length Air Unit with golden pistons that sit under a white midsole. A purple outsole with LeBron James’ golden Lion logo completes the look.


Resale Value

These shoes will likely sell out as the Lakers’ colorways have always been popular among fans. To improve your chances of copping a pair or even multiple, join our exclusive Winner’s Circle. You’ll receive highly useful information that can help you cop the best sneakers.

Using my estimated resell value of $290, expect gross profits of around $100 per pair. Pure profits can be even higher by selling on websites that offer service fee waivers such as eBay.
