What’s the Story Behind the Air Force 1 “Four Horsemen?”

With the release of the Nike Air Force 1 “Four Horsemen,” we have taken the courtesy to take a few moments and explore the nickname of Nike’s latest AF1. If you have been asking yourself what the “Four Horsemen” are, keep reading.

First of all, forget about the four horsemen of the apocalypse; this has nothing to do with Christianity and the book of Revelation; the Four Horsemen we are talking about are Rich Paul, Randy Mims, Maverick Carter, and LeBron James. Yes, the latest Air Force 1 is a nod to LeBron James’ childhood friends who have helped “the King” to build his empire from Akron, Ohio to the world. But the concept isn’t new; over the years, James has had a few Four Horsemen teamed sneakers paying homage to his business partners. Let’s quickly give you a rundown on all of them. Well, LeBron James doesn’t need an introduction; the NBA player has made his mark, becoming the NBA scoring leader during the 2022/2023 season, and he continues to be the best player on the Los Angeles Lakers at the age of 38. Rich Paul, LeBron’s agent and founder of Klutch Sports, the most influential American sports agency, has engaged with superstar Adele in recent years.  Randy Mims is another childhood friend of James that is LeBron’s Chief of Staff and is working for the LA Lakers’ front office, while Mav Carter is the CEO of SpringHill Entertainment and UNINTERRUPTED, both companies that are responsible for LeBron’s marketing and commercial side, fixing deals, negotiating investments like LBJ’s Liverpool FC ownership and so much more.

It’s evident that without those three guys, LeBron James wouldn’t be where he is right now; they helped him make difficult decisions like leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers for Miami and never went away. As a lifetime Nike athlete, LeBron occasionally pays homage to his partners with releases like the Nike Air Force 1 “Four Horsemen” featuring elements that nod to his inner circle. Crafted with a white leather base, the shoe features green elements inspired by St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, where LeBron became who he is today. Equipped with embroidered “LR” and “MR” initials and horse chess pieces, the shoe is finished off by silver elements for a flashy finish.
