LeBron James 1 vs. 11: Nike shoes went from simple to spaceship over the years

LeBron James has had his own signature line of Nikes since he was a teenager. Over the years, however, as the legend has grown and his game has developed, King James’ shoes have evolved right along with him.

The white and reds on the right are the first Brons that Nike produced. They are simple, without too much by way of flair, save for a reflective band around the heel.

The shoe on the left, however, is the yellow/gray/aqua-toned pair of LeBron 11 kicks Nike developed for 2013-14.

Evolution right before your eyes, folks.
