The three-way collaboration between designer John Elliott, athlete LeBron James, and worldwide giant Nike has breathed new life into the concept of a basketball shoe, dosing in lifestyle elements for a silhouette so appropriately dubbed the LeBron Icon. While first making its debut back in 2018, the newest set — which made a brief cameo in the designer’s Pre-Fall 2019 lookbook — is one of both vibrant and versatile standing with the first of the trio to drop being a black colorway detailed with classic gum bottoms. Borrowing the midsole armament from the LEBRON 8, the Icon does away with preconceived concepts along its upper, adding intricate molds for added dimension to a construction that arrives moderate in panels. Taped components from the profile to the heel wrap add textural divergence alongside the translucent synthetics found atop the toe box and top line.
If you’re looking to grab your hands on these, they will be available for pre-sale on May 22nd at the John Elliott LA location with a wider release at Nike.com and select retailers slated for May 25th.
