LeBron James Talks New Deal With Nike

The +Cleveland Cavaliers team member +LeBron James has just sing a big +SportScheck with +Nike for a lifetime. Nike has signed Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James to a lifetime deal in what one source familiar with the negotiations said is the largest single-athlete guarantee in company history.

“We can confirm that we have agreed to a lifetime relationship with LeBron that provides significant value to our business, brand and shareholders,” Nike said in a statement. “We have already built a strong LeBron business over the past 12 years, and we see the potential for this to continue to grow throughout his playing career and beyond.”

A company spokesperson would not say how much Nike paid. It is believed to be the first lifetime deal in the shoe and apparel company’s 44-year history.

“I’m very humble, man,” James said to reporters after Monday’s practice. “It’s been an unbelievable time for myself and my family, and I’m just grateful that Nike and [Nike founder] Phil Knight and everyone over there just believed in a skinny-old, skinny 18-year-old kid from Akron, Ohio, and I’m happy to be a part of such a great company.”

A source close to the deal told ESPN that it easily surpasses the 10-year, $300 million deal Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant signed with the world’s largest shoe and apparel brand last summer.

“LeBron and I have been in love and obsessed with Nike since we were kids,” Maverick Carter, James’ business partner, said Monday. “Having built a totally innovative global business with them has truly been a dream come true. We are so excited to be taking the business to an entirely new level. For LeBron, he’s thrilled to know he’s a Nike guy for life.”

James commented on his affinity for the brand, how important his first Nike deal was and what the new agreement means to him.

“It meant a lot to me even when I signed my first deal just to be with Nike, and it means even more that they’ve given me this,” James said. “It’s like I said, very humbling and grateful, and I’m going to continue to do my job and represent the brand the best way I can, like I know how. Hopefully, people see that.”

Carter will manage the deal, which was negotiated by Main Street Advisors’ Paul Wachter, who also negotiated the deal for John Henry to buy the Red Sox in 2002 and represented Beats By Dre in its $3 billion sale to Apple last May.

Although other companies have negotiated lifetime deals — Adidas has structured them with Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose and soccer great David Beckham, while Reebok has a lifetime deal with former Philadelphia 76ers point guard Allen Iverson — Nike has never announced a lifetime deal before.

New YEEZY Basketball Shoe Banned

Kanye West is expected to debut his first-ever Yeezy basketball sneaker on the feet of Adidas athletes during the upcoming NBA season. But the league office would ban the current version of the sneaker on court because of its gleaming, reflective-material heel, according to industry sources.

While the monochromatic sneakers won’t violate the league’s footwear color restrictions, the issue is the reflective “3M” heel panel, which the NBA would find potentially distracting for both in-arena spectators and television viewers.

Carmelo Anthony faced a similar issue with the metallic chrome heel of his Jordan M10 signature sneakers while playing for the New York Knicks. He later wore an updated version with a matte paint finish.

Players are no longer required to wear shoes matching their team’s uniform colors, but the league still has an approval process for new silhouettes from brands in advance of the season.

According to Christopher Arena, the NBA’s vice president of identity, outfitting and equipment, companies will typically submit sneakers for the first half of the season by early August, with shoes scheduled to be worn after the All-Star break required for approval by early December.

While the league office has yet to receive and formally review the new Yeezy basketball shoe in person, the version shared online by West would not be permitted on court as is, according to a source. Alternative versions of the sneaker that don’t incorporate the reflective material would likely be approved.

The league has banned or issued warnings for several sneakers in its history, most famously Michael Jordan’s black and red Nike Air Jordan 1 sneaker in 1985. Nike almost instantly turned the buzz around the Bulls star’s banished debut sneakers into a marketing campaign, vaulting the signature series into rare air and sparking the dawn of collectible-sneaker culture. Three decades later, the Jordan Brand has become its own fully fledged subsidiary of the Nike Inc. company, with annual revenues topping $3 billion.

In a recent post on his @KanyeWest Instagram, the Chicago native explained that his Yeezy basketball shoe has been in development for over three years and undergone nearly 300 sample updates.

The new model is expected to finally make its much-anticipated debut during the 2018-19 season, with Adidas non-signature athletes like Donovan Mitchell, Brandon Ingram, John Wall, Kelly Oubre Jr. and Nick Young potentially wearing the shoe in early 2019. Retail release dates and a finalized price point have yet to be determined.

Earlier Monday, during an interview with paparazzi in Los Angeles, West discussed his long-term vision for his collaborative brand with Adidas and his eventual goal to bring the manufacturing of his sneaker line stateside.

“The Yeezys will be made in America,” he said. “We’re putting a factory in Chicago.”

New Sneaker Subscription Service By Nike

Nike is hoping to help parents who don't live near a shoe store, so they don't have to drag the kids to try on shoes every few months to buy shoes that they outgrow every few months.

Nike launched a new sneaker subscription for kids aged two through ten, which is called Nike Adventure Club. The subscription is offered in three tiers: Four sneakers a year for $20 a month, six pairs for $30 a month or 12 pairs for $50 a month. Parents will be able to choose from around 100 sneakers.

Dave Cobban, general manager of Nike Adventure Club, addressed these problems, telling CNN Business, "We've discovered a huge pain point for parents around shopping for kids' shoe. This was a great opportunity to experiment with different solutions."

New Nike “Just Do It” Pack @Nike

Anyone that’s been a longtime fan of Nike is pretty familiar with the Swoosh’s “Just Do It” campaign. That’s why we’re pretty sure the latest Air Max 95 colorways arriving soon will be appreciated and fawned over by many.

The “Just Do It” AM95 set utilizes the signature brand tagline on an orange colorway (synonymous with the classic color of Nike sneaker boxes) and a white option that incorporates the popular all-over print. Each shoe also comes with a hang tag for added steez, but these bad boys are honestly swagged out all on their own.

So far no word on when the Nike Air Max 95 “Just Do It” pack will hit shelves, but we’ll keep you posted when it becomes available. Peep more pics of both colorways below:

Sneaker Reselling Business Becomes Big

I'll tell you one thing, I don't care how many pair of shoe I have, I'm not selling them to no-one. According to Financial Times, the market of sneaker reselling as a whole is worth an estimated $1 billion now. The data in the piece is largely based on figures from Campless, which analyzes the resell market by taking data points from millions of eBay auctions.

Unsurprisingly, the vast majority of the sneaker reselling market consists of Nike and Air Jordan releases. According to the Campless data, 96 percent of the “eBay Sneakerhead” market last year was Nike and Air Jordan. Jordans are particularly powerful. In 2013 users spent $62.7 million just on Jordans 3 through 14.
