3. DJ Clark Kent x Nike LeBron 8 "James Dean"
Year Released: 2011
If you were lucky enough to be blessed with a pair of these from the man himself (Clark, not James Dean), you're probably still rejoicing. DJ Clark Kent's "James Dean" version of the LeBron 8 was a standout amongst the first version of the silhouette. The full denim upper hit with black leather accents, gold detailing and a gold outsole really turns heads and would have been another craze like the "South Beach" had this been released to the rest of the world.
