It’s been almost exactly a year since the debut of the LeBron 19, which headlined Nike’s Space Jam: A New Legacy collection. And while we’ve enjoyed many a colorway since, the silhouette’s time is soon coming to an end, as the athlete himself was seen wearing the upcoming LeBron 20.
Historically, LeBron’s signatures first come wearing a high-top profile, with low-tops arriving not long thereafter. But here, the LeBron 20 has debuted in the shorter trim, flaunting a simple design alongside. The model borrows the rounded shape of certain predecessors, constructing its upper with a malleable, breathable knit material. Two Swooshes, then, lay along the side: one is raised, lifting off from the shoe towards the heel, while the other sits underneath stitched into the background. Elsewhere, leather detailing accents both the tongue and eye stays; branding is kept extremely minimal; and the sole unit lacks any visible Air Units.
Enjoy a quick look at the LeBron 20 right here. More details about the shoe’s design are sure to surface soon, so sit tight as we await official word from the brand.
In other news, the Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low is releasing next month.
