Nike Sold 500,000 LeBron Shoes Last Year
spotted: NBC
“Nike says it sold more than 500,000 pairs of LeBron shoes this year.”

All those shoes Nike sold underscore the strength of James’ brand. Despite turning much of America against him after his controversial Decision to team up with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami, James remains a endorsement giant.

In April, the NBA announced James’ Heat jersey was the top seller at NBAStore.com for the 2010-2011 season. A month later, James rose to the 10th spot in Forbes’ “Celebrity 100” ranking, the highest position on the list of any basketball player and second only to Tiger Woods among athletes.

James’ marketing might figures to only get stronger as Nike expands its position in China, the world’s fastest-growing consumer base.

He still hasn’t won an NBA title, and may never pass Michael Jordan as one of the NBA’s greatest players, but LeBron James can at least make a compelling argument that in terms of merchandising, he’s already become the next Jordan.
