Notable Player Editions: Air Jordan IX & Air Jordan XVIII 

We aren't sure why the throwback jerseys were such a big deal back in Akron because LeBron was receiving shipments of personalized kicks on a daily basis from all the big sneaker brands including Jordan. During his senior year he took flight in some sick player edition Jordan XVIIIs and even won the state title in IXs. When he hit the NBA his media day was mostly spent in some exclusive "Blackout" Jordan IXs made to cater to a king.
