2006 - Nike Zoom 20-5-5

Notable player: LeBron James 

If you are too young, go back and check out the beef LeBron had with Washington during the '06 Playoff run, it was also the year Nike introduced his first non-traditional signature shoe that happened to carry over to the post-season. The Zoom 20-5-5 was a testament to LeBron's nightly stat line and it was anchored by a sneaker light enough for a point guard but durable enough for a linebacker. The best of both worlds.
