Last night marked the official start of Nike’s Elite Youth Basketball League. Each year the best high school basketball players in the nation compete for a bid to the famed Nike Peach Jam in early July while The Swoosh simultaneously outfits the next generation of hoopers in player-exclusive renditions of their signature line-up. Thanks to detailed images posted recently via the Nike EYBL Instagram page, the Nike LeBron 20 provides us with an elite showcase of the pack’s multi-color grandeur.
Following our first look at the accompanying Nike Ja 1 in early March, The King’s 20th signature silhouette scraps the former vibrant base layer for a reserved light grey knit upper with seldom hits of jet-black stitching. Illuminating both its stitched mid-foot Swooshes with a titular marbled graphic, the established pastel treatment concentrates along the bright purple tongue construction, soft pink collar and baby blue quarter overlay. Underfoot, the pulsing palette is anchored with a split sole unit featuring a pitch-dark forefoot and light cream midsole that finishes in a colorful speckling.
While the pair won’t see an official release date, you can catch up-close imagery of the Nike LeBron 20 “EYBL” below.
