For the second year in a row LeBron James has led the Miami Heat to a World Championship and Just like last year, Nike is celebrating LeBron’s second title by releasing another limited edition Championship pack.
This years Championship pack comes with two pairs of shoes like last years, however unlike last years. This pack includes a low top version (LeBron X Low) of LeBron’s signature shoe, instead of two high top versions of his shoe, along with two hats. The T-shirt is sold separately.
The low top version of LeBron’s shoe is the shoe that we saw leaked pics of the morning of game 6 of the NBA Finals. This pair has a graphic on the insole of both shoes. On one shoe it has “Two Time Champion” printed on it, while the other has the years of “11-12, 12-13″. This shoe has a Florida tropical print called “floral palm splatter” that flows throughout the upper of the shoe and the hat that goes with these shoes has the same print.
The second shoe is the shoe that LeBron wore two or three times during the Finals against the Spurs and was the shoe he wore in last nights game 7 win. It’s the Finals version of LeBron’s playoff version of his regular signature shoe.
I know….you non-sneakerheads are like “what?!” This is what’s up. Every year LeBron has a signature shoe that he wears during regular season games. However in the playoffs Nike comes out with a playoff version of his shoe which is made of different materials to make the shoe lighter and a few other key features. After playing 82 game schedule, players like much lighter shoes as they go into a grueling playoff series.
This Finals version of LeBron’s shoe has an all red upper with a clear floral palm splatter print on it and black speckles on the mid-sole, gold flakes imbedded in the clear out-sole as well as that floral palm splatter print inside of the shoe.
There hasn’t been a release date set on this pack nor have I heard as to how much it will cost. I will update this post with that info as soon as I get it.
For fellow sneaker-heads, you remember last years championship pack that was only sold in Miami at select retailers. One of those places was LeBron’s store in Dadeland Mall, “Unknown”. Last years pack sold for $500.00 if I’m not mistaken but like most sneakers these days, the aftermarket value in them is now $6,000 plus. I was never able to get my hands on a pack and I have connections. I have a feeling I may strike out on this years Championship pack too. We’ll see.

LeBron James is the king of South Beach, the king of the NBA, and after his second straight NBA Championship and MVP, “he ain’t got no worries.”
James just wanted to celebrate last night, and had no interest in answering anymore questions from the media. In the video courtesy of Larry Brown Sports, LeBron got fed up, and let the media have it, dropping an f bomb, and “telling...
LeBron James was amazing in Game 7 of the NBA Finals. He shot superbly from the field. He made all of his free throws. He grabbed rebounds. He didn’t turn the ball over. He consistently burned the Spurs when they dared him to shoot. He came through in the clutch. For his performance in the [...]
With me being a Miami Heat fan, (since 04′), I’m pretty happy about how the 2013 NBA Finals ended. Normally I would write something about the series. But everything that has been said about the Heat and LeBron James doesn’t need to be said again as its been said over and over today.
That said, I’m just going to make this article a “media montage” of the Heat’s game...
MIAMI LeBron James is 28 years old. When Michael Jordan was that age, he had one championship ring.
James now has two.
This isnt to suggest James definitely will reach Jordans six. But he has plenty of time to get there.
After winning a second straight title Thursday, James legacy is still being built. The way he has improved in each of the past two seasons, he might not even...
For the second year in a row I get to display this gorgeous centerpiece of my collection following a great NBA playoffs and a Heat title.These last two postseasons have made me a bigger NBA fan than I've ever been, and I'm quite happy for James that his team ended both campaigns on top.
San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green did all he could to try to help his team defeat the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, but in the end it just wasn’t enough. His shooting cooled off in Games 6 and 7, with his NBA playoff record of 27 three-pointers made in a single series growing [...]
The Miami Heat went from seeing the yellow tape being rolled out for the Spurs on Tuesday night to partying it up after back-to-back championships Thursday night. Oh the difference 48 hours makes!
LeBron James and Dwayne Wade were the Master of Ceremonies at Club Story, not the usual Club LIV, for the championship celebration last night. Miami Heat players packed the...
With their 95-88 victory in Game 7, the Miami Heat are the 2012-2013 NBA Champions.
The game was tight from start to finish, but Miami had just a little more left in their gas tank from Game 6, and that proved to be the difference at the end of the game.
LeBron James found his shooting stroke, hitting 5 3-pointers and multiple midrange jump shots, including the game clincher from...
Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade had worse knee problems than he ever made known during the playoffs. Wade revealed Saturday in an interview with the Associated Press that his right knee pained him so much that he was considering asking to play limited minutes in Game 7
In Nike’s latest ad, LeBron James receives congratulations on his second straight NBA championship from Spike Lee, Warren Buffet, Drake, Dr. Dre, Bill Russell, Coach K and more on his answering machine, which I’m guessing doesn’t look like that in real life.
