LeBron James’ New ‘20’ Shoe Earns Mixed Reactions (Photos)

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is one of the best basketball players to ever live. There is a reason he is a mainstay in the GOAT conversation – his on-the-court credentials speak for themselves.

That said, James isn’t just a legend for his playing skills. Much like Michael Jordan before him, James has also etched his name into the record books over his long-time relationship with Nike.

James inked a lifetime deal with Nike at the end of 2015. Rumors suggest that it pays him more than $30 million annually, but concrete numbers have never actually come out.

What has come out with regularity is a new ‘LeBron’ shoe – and it was more of the same this week. Photos leaked out of the new LeBron 20, and it earned something of a mixed response.

The visual largely speaks for itself:

As do the reactions:

Different shoe styles garner different responses from various people, so the polarization here is unsurprising. The same thing happened when Alex Caruso debuted his new kicks, Gordon Hayward offered up a signature shoe and Austin Reaves dropped his hot fire.

Some people always love it, while others always hate it.

Will these new LeBrons ultimately sell as successfully as past models have?

Time will tell.
