The LeBron 17 has definitely taken on many forms this season as Nike has presented the hoops-ready silhouette with Laker colors, Jordan retro homages, Space Jam impersonations, NBA2K gamer exclusives and more. And due to the fact that it is now well settled into the basketball market, King James’ signature shoes are more than ready to bring back one of its traditional makeovers by way of its latest “What The” offering. The model itself is already relatively aggressive by nature due to its textured upper and marbled accents, but when the Swoosh mashes up many of its previously released renditions together, one can argue that even describing these as “loud” and “flashy” would be an understatement. Several of his colorways are noticeable such as the right side’s “Mr. Swackhammer” toe boxes, “Monstars” base layer backdrop, and Lakers-inspire tongues, to the left foot’s “Red Carpet” tongues paired up with his famous “More Than An Athlete” motto, as well its lateral grey walls adopted from the “I Promise” iteration blended up with “Red Carpet” tongues and a finals-esque black/gold toe tips derived from one of the latest LeBron 17 Low variations. Enjoy a first look here below, and stay tuned for more info of its official release likely on Nike.com and at select retailers for $200.
