When LeBron James won his first two championships with the Miami Heat, Nike commemorated their star athlete with a championship pack of his sneakers. The shoes were limited and sold out in seconds, and they can be seen being sold for thousands upon thousands of dollars on the after market.
After winning the NBA Finals this year, it was a surprise Nike did not announce a championship pack for LeBron. Even more strange is that they didn't capitalize on the fact that LeBron's teammate Kyrie Irving, who had an amazing series, could also be a part of this somehow since he is also a Nike signature athlete.
It looks like the swoosh has finally answered. Not only are they releasing a combined pack of the Nike Kyrie 2 with the Nike LeBron 10 Soldier, but it looks like they could be releasing four different packs—all to commemorate each win they got in the Finals series versus the Golden State Warriors.
It's a shame, however, that these won't be releasing online. The pack, which are the shoes from the Cavs' Game 3 win, will be releasing in-stores only at select Nike Store and Foot Locker House of Hoops locations. They will only be releasing in select big markets, and a ton of them will be releasing in the Cleveland area.
If you're in the area and looking to score big on these, here's your chance. Cop These Kicks revealed the list of locations that will be releasing the shoes, and links to the website if you want more information.
Jordan Brand is going super premium for this weekend's sneaker releases, and it looks like they are going to be super hard to cop. As you are reading this, your best chance at getting this online is if you stay up. You'll see why later...
Jordan Brand is releasing their "Pinnacle" collection on Saturday, which is a luxury take on some of their famous models. Releasing on Saturday will be an all-gold Air Jordan 6, an all-silver Air Jordan 1 Low, and a pair of Air Jordan slides.
The 6s are the most popular out of the bunch, retailing for $250. The after market already has these going for around $400+. For those trying to resell, that is a nice come up, and I am sure you could do the same with the 1s and the slides.
Unless you already got your plug in stores, it's going to be pretty hard to get these online. We have some early links to the online retailers carrying the collection—surprisingly, Nike.com isn't one of them.
