That’s still far behind the current active NBA leader in LeBron James, who pulled in a cool $300 Million himself, albeit LeBron’s signature shoe is significantly more expensive than Durant’s. The growth has to be taken into consideration, especially with Kevin’s younger age and more amicable public profile. 2013 Sneaker Numbers LeBron James – Nike $300 Million | 2012: $300 Million Kevin Durant – Nike $175 million | 2012: $35 Million Kobe Bryant – Nike $50 Million | 2012: $50 Million Derrick Rose – Adidas $40 Million | 2012: $40 Million Before we forget though, let’s include Mr. Jordan in this conversation. In 2013, he made a whopping $2.25 BILLION, which is more than theses four guys up top combined! Here’s what the graph would look like with the GOAT in the picture. One Response Valentine Xavier February 6, 2014 Well yeah, Jordan Brand has about 1,000 sneakers out on the market. That 2.25 billion figure for MJ also includes the sales of Melo’s and CP3’s shoes. If you only compared sales of Jordan’s latest signature sneaker to LeBron’s latest signature sneaker the numbers would be a lot closer.
