For the past four decades Nike has celebrated and given a voice to some of the great athletes of our time. For Holiday 2011 basketball superstar LeBron James gets the Nike Sportswear collection treatment with a series of iconic Nike silhouettes adorned with some personal storytelling.
The standout piece in an all-wool Destroyer Jacket, similar to the version LeBron wore last season during his first return to Cleveland following his move south-east. Vivat Rex “long live the king” is embroidered on the inside of the jacket, with LeBron’s Nike Sportswear ‘Lion 6’ logo beautifully adorned on the sleeve. The message Virescit Vulnere Virtus’ sits boxed in the bottom translated as “courage becomes greater through the wound.” The jacket is made from 100% recycled wool.
