Pioneered by Michael Jordan and carried on through Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, and LeBron James, among others, Nike has a long history of successful signature sneaker lines.

He followed that up by wearing a black and gold colorway of the Nike LeBron Soldier 11 in Game 2. But for NBA Finals practice on Tuesday at Quicken Loans Arena, James traded in his signature line for the Nike Kobe 11, via Sole Collector:
