7. Nike LeBron 8 V1 "James Dean" 

Year: 2011

DJ Clark Kent doesn't just come with neon and flash. His "James Dean" take on the LeBron 8 put denim and leather — and an oh-so-crucial gum sole — on the high-tech court wonder, transforming one young star's signature model into a tribute to another who died too soon. Good luck finding a pair.
