From 16-year-old phenom to 20-year veteran and four-time Champion, LeBron James has since assumed the responsibility of passing his on-court knowledge and expertise down to his top-ranked sons. While diving into a training session with his youngest son Bryce, LeBron introduced the world to his 21st signature silhouette with the Beaverton brand.
Sticking with the low-top solution that was first introduced via his 20th signature model, the Nike LeBron 21 sports a gleaming patent leather upper with the padded tongue stretching further up the ankle. While the pair’s technical elements have yet to be revealed, the overall construction draws ostensible inspiration from the Nike Kobe 4 and Kobe A.D. In the images posted to his Instagram, Bron sports a clad “Sail” colorway infused with hits of “Metallic Gold” that cure the ribbed heel counter and split midsole. The raised lateral profile swoosh is color-matched to the surrounding neutral real estate while its medial counterpart is framed in the golden allure that dominates the back half of the model.
In keeping with his past signature releases, the Nike LeBron 21 is expected to drop later this fall season. In the meantime, enjoy a first look at the pair below.
In other signature news, the Nike Kobe 6 “Italian Camo” is expected to return in Summer 2024.
