31 points, 15 boards and 8 assists to start year 20; LeBron James is just build different. While the King and his Lakers may have had their season opener squandered by the Warriors on Tuesday, the four-time champ’s highly-touted 20th signature silhouette was in full force on the feet’s of LeBron, Anthony Davis and others in its debut “Time Machine” offering.

As one of the most accessible of his kicks in terms of its low-cut and ultra-cushioned construction – disparate from the bulkier, more structured builds of years past – the Nike LeBron 20 is set to embark on a flurry of propositions for the 2022-23 season; including this throwback to the Cavaliers-centric colorways seen in the early days of his line.

Taking a hint of inspiration from the Nike LeBron 7 “MVP” that received a retro back in 2020, the latest aesthetic employs “Metallic Golden” Swooshes finished with titular “University Red” trim that sits atop a salt and pepper knit mesh upper. The underlying midfoot check renders a contrasting jet-black shading that additionally fills the adjacently placed heel tab and floral detailing scrawled across the forefoot’s midsole. Further outfitting the upper, crisp white hues proffer the laces and leather tongue tab whereas a light grey quarter overlay blends with metallic silver eye stays and dubraes. Above an icy blue semi-translucent tread underfoot, the model establishes premium red embellishments stitched along the tongue, heel counter and medial side Swoosh in conclusion.

While we sit tight on the announcement of a release date in the coming weeks, in the meantime enjoy official images of the Nike LeBron 20 “MVP” below.

For more silhouettes made for the hardwood, LaMelo Ball’s Puma MB.02 releases tomorrow, October 21st.
