LeBron James and the Nike family have been at it for almost two decades. As “the kid from Akron” enters his 21st professional season, he’s ready to show the world the Nike LeBron 21.
The firm hasn’t released an official press release for James’ 21st trademark model, although the sneaker is comparable to its immediate predecessor. The LeBron 21 is prepared to tell distinct sections of the current Los Angeles Laker’s journey, as are other styles from the broad Nike LeBron range. James has been vocal about his love of horror flicks, and it appears that his passion will be translated into sneaker form via the LeBron 21.
The majority of the upper is made of red suede, with the most noticeable discontinuity being at the spine. The shiny plate at the heel is enhanced with a rope-like texture that may refer to the ropes at old-school movie houses. Ticket stub-like tongue labels and popcorn graphic-covered sockliners, on the other hand, are direct tributes to the silver screen. Underfoot, the solitary units forego the movie motif in favor of a purple, white, and semi-translucent blue blend.
Enjoy an incredibly early peek at the pair ahead, and look for a nike.com launch before the end of 2023.
