LeBron James shut down any naysayers during the first round of the 2019-20 NBA Playoffs. And now that he’s re-joined by “Playoff” Rondo, the kid from Akron and his Los Angeles Lakers squad seem poised to secure another championship. James’ inaugural Nike LeBron 18 is scheduled to launch just days before a potential Game 7 for the NBA Finals (October 13th).
Currently listed on select retailers’ release calendars for an October 9th drop, the “Black/White/Multi-Color” pair may be the recently-leaked “James Gang” iteration of the 35-year-old’s 18th signature sneaker with the Swoosh. In any case, the silhouette is set to deliver Nike Basketball’s latest innovation, which includes tweaked knit uppers, forefoot Zoom Air cushioning, and Max Air units. Furthermore, as gathered from pairs worn by James out and about in the NBA bubble, tongues feature visible Airbags; a molded heel splits the model, serving as its “power”-oriented component.
Depending on the trajectory of the NBA Playoffs, a special edition of the LeBron 18 may precede the pair set to arrive on October 9th. For any updates, keep it locked here.
