The NBA’s annual Media Day before each year’s upcoming season always brings out a few interesting sneakers spotted on the feet of players around the league. Few have been more surprising or unexpected than the shoes LeBron James broke out for the Cleveland Cavs media day today, a never-before-seen pair of the Nike LeBron 3 Low. The unreleased low-top LeBron 3 features a tonal navy suede upper, for a look reminiscent of the Kobe “Fade to Black” collection. LeBron’s mysterious sneaker appears to include a hangtag that says “XXX”, which is a little puzzling since he’s not turning 30, nor is his signature line thirty years old.
Could a special LeBron retro collection be in the works? Or is this just a PE created for only King James? These photos are all the information we have on the tonal LeBron 3 Low right now, so stay tuned to Sneaker News for any further developments.
Update: LeBron posted a photo of the shoes on his Instagram, hinting that a retro release may very well indeed be on the way.
