NBA: Brooklyn Nets at Miami Heat

There’s an old saying which surely some of you may have heard before: “the shoes make the man.” Well, that maybe so, but in LeBron James’ case, if there wasn’t a man, there would be no shoe.

Nike first gave King James a signature sneaker back in 2003. A decade later, the Nike LeBron series is still going stronger than ever with the current LeBron X model. Every kid on the block’s got a pair. Hell, even the towel boys at American Airlines Arena rock ‘em (wonder if LeBron hooked it up).  And yes, in just months from now, the X will be replaced by the XI—we know. But make no mistake about it, the tenth installment of the Nike LeBron series will go down in history as one of the best signature models of all time, of any athlete. Let’s not forget too, it’s the most expensive basketball shoe ever made. So whichever way you swing it, the shoe has cemented its place in the sneaker history books for good.

The LeBron X, which made its debut at the 2012 London Olympics, has been on the feet of its namesake player in an assortment of colorways over the past year. During the 2012-13 NBA season, LeBron has hit the court in over three dozen different variations of the LeBron X (including general releases, as well as personal editions). Only twice has he worn an older signature model (the Ambassador V and LeBron VI).

To celebrate LeBron’s recently-earned second NBA title, here’s a breakdown of every shoe worn by the four-time league MVP during the regular season, as well as the playoffs, and the stats to match. This is By the Numbers: LeBron James’ Stats for Each Sneaker Worn in the 2012-13 NBA Season.
