LeBron James didn't only dominate his fourth MVP season with incredible play for the Miami Heat—the King also took his shoe game to the next level with an unforgettable array of styles of the Nike LeBron X.

Nike's LeBron line has been a fan favorite since the prodigy entered the league in 2003, signing a massive $90 million deal with Nike without even stepping foot on the court.

This season the King wore over 30 different colorways between the three versions of the LeBron X. Here is a quick breakdown of the different types:

LeBron X ($180 retail): This is the basic version of the X. The most notable exterior difference is that the Nike swoosh towards the heel of the shoe is flat.

LeBron X+ ($200 retail): The addition of the plus sign means the shoe comes with a textured Nike logo on the heel and Nike Plus technology to track your movement on the court.

LeBron X P.S. Elite ($260 retail): The Elite version of the shoe carries most of the characteristics of the X's, but also adds some higher quality materials such as carbon fiber.

So which were the best? Let's break down No. 6's 2012-13 shoe collection.
