After recent sneak peeks of the Nike LeBron 16, we’ve finally gotten word from the horse’s mouth.
King James took to the ‘gram to give us our best look yet at the next in line to the throne. It shares the pod-like Air units of the 15 and, in a throwback to James’ earlier signature models, sports an embossed lion at the heel. Gone is the previous iteration’s textural Battleknit, though; it’s been replaced with a more geometrical weave.
LeBron has previewed a black and red version, so it’s not certain if or when we’ll see the black, white and yellow make-up first leaked. We’ll keep you updated as more information comes to light.
At this stage, retailers are slating a September 20 release, so official shots and info are no doubt imminent.
