It’s been a big year for Lebron James – the man has won his fourth NBA championship and probably cemented his position as the GOAT in the hearts of his followers. While the debate about the GOAT is open to interpretation but one thing is for sure, Lebron James is unparalleled currently in the NBA.  

The man deserves his respect and with that In mind, let us introduce the Nike Lebron 18 Lakers releasing on the 23rd of October for a retail price of $200. Now we know that there usually isn’t much resale value for the Lebron basketball sneakers but since his 4th championship ring, there might have been an increase in interest?

Now before we continue to the latest addition to the Lebron 18 family, let’s look at some of the highlights: 

Nike Lebron 18 Reflections 

Release Date: 21st September 2020

Retail Price: $200

 

Nike-LeBron-18-Lakers

The Lebron 18 Reflections features a black knitted upper along with blue graphics and gold accents. This Lebron 18 was released on the 21st of September 2020 for a retail price of $225.  

Looking at StockX, we can see that the resale value has been mediocre with an average resale price of $262 and a peak resale price of $364 

Nike LeBron 18 Multicolor 

Release Date: 9th October 2020

Retail Price: $200

Nike-LeBron-18-Lakers

The Nike Lebron 18 Multicolor is a really wacky sneaker. With the classic Lebron 18 knitted black upper, the heel goes crazy with a vivid colorful graphic and “. Hence, the name Multicolor.  “James Gang” on the tongue and a pink/blue swoosh on the toe can also be seen. A white midsole and multi-colored out-sole finishes off the design. 

The Nike Lebron 18 Multicolor was released on 9th October 2020 for a retail price of $200 and after enjoying an initial profitable period, its resale price has been dropped to an average of $180 currently. 

But at the time of its release, the Lebron 18 Multicolor was a profitable sneaker albeit by a mediocre margin.  

Nike LeBron 18 Empire Jade 

Release Date: 21st September 2020

Retail Price: $200

Nike-LeBron-18-Lakers

Usually, the Lebron 18s are very plain with their colorways and try to keep it simple and elegant. But I guess, the boardroom got bored of that finally and decided to launch the Nike Lebron 18 Empire Jade. 

The Empire Jade features a gradient of white and offwhite tones as the upper. 

The sneaker released on 21st September 2020 for a retail price of $200. And this probably has been the most profitable Lebron 18 to exist. The sneaker, even a month later, has a resale price of $276.   

Nike Lebron 18 Lakers – Details


The Nike Lebron 18 Lakers is simple and easy on the eye. With the knitted black upper, purple colored heels and gold accents, we can understand the reason behind the moniker of this sneaker. In terms of branding, we see gold Nike swooshes on the forefoot along with the lateral heels. The Lebron James logo is imprinted on the back of the heel and the white midsoles help finish up the design on the Nike Lebron 18 Lakers.

Nike Lebron 18 Lakers – Resale Price

The resale price of the Nike Lebron 18 Lakers unfortunately is not all that great. Even though Lebron James managed to secure his 4th championship, the sneaker doesn’t have that appeal that makes the buyers go crazy on it.  

If these were the sneakers that Lebron wore in one of the finals, then maybe it would have higher resale value but since these are just another rendition of the Lebron 18s, there isn’t much we are looking at here.  

If we take a look at the Ask and Bid prices on StockX, we can see that they coincide at around $210. This means that even sellers aren’t posting high Ask prices since they know that it isn’t worth all that much.  

Therefore, the average resale price of the Nike Lebron 18 Lakers is around $210 and after deducting the costs of selling, you won’t even be breaking even on this sneaker. Therefore, from sixfiguresneakerhead, the Nike Lebron 18 Lakers is not a COP.  

Conclusion 

Sneaker: Nike Lebron 18 Lakers 

Release Date: October 23rd 

Retail Price: $200 

Resale Price: $210 

COP OR NOT: NOT
