3. LeBron James
Sneaker Company: Nike
The expectations for LeBron James have been unparalleled on the court and off ever since the cameras began following him around as a youngster. We still can't condone "The Decision," but the fresh hardware in his trophy case doesn't lie, King James has earned his crown. When it comes to sneakers, 10 years strong he is steadily climbing on this list—the all-new LeBron X is bananas—and at just 27 years old, we bet he's not done moving up yet.
