"Christ The King" LeBron 3s resurface after more than a decade.
Nike began retroing LeBron James' signature sneakers last year when they brought back the shoe that started it all, the Air Zoom Generation. Moving forward, it looks like Nike has plans to start retroing some of LeBron's other classic silhouettes, including the Nike LeBron 3 - and rumors suggest some limited edition colorways will be returning.
Nike has not yet announced any official plans for the Nike LeBron 3 retro, but sneaker source sinshouhin_com recently unveiled new images of the "Christ The King" Nike LeBron 3 PE, leading to speculation that the kicks will release in the near future for the first time ever. The special edition colorway, made for the prestigious Christ the King High School in Queens, New York was first introduced in 2006 but remained exclusive to players, friends and family.
The Nike LeBron 3 made it's debut back in November of 2005, featuring Zoom Air units at the forefoot and heel, as well as a “foot-bucket” insole which prevented the foot from slipping off the foot-bed. The kicks are currently selling on the resale market in the $400-$500 range, however some player exclusives, like the "Superman" joint, fetch as much as $1,500. Deadstock pairs of the "CTK" LeBron 3s have asking prices ranging from $620 to $1,800 on eBay.
