In his 21st season in the NBA, LeBron James and his signature discography with Nike have continued to age like a fine wine. Throughout just 16 games, the four-time Champion has given much more than a taste of what’s to come from the widely-regarded Nike LeBron 21. From a Friends and Family collaboration with UNKNWN to dawning current releases and a range of Player Exclusive styles, LeBron’s heralded low-top trim has exuded just as much dominance as his 26/8/7 stat line.
Cured in the same velvety suede texture that appeared on A’ja Wilson’s WNBA Championship PE, the near-clad jet-black upper stretches its rich colorless treatment across the tongue, midsole and laces. Even the typically iridescent heel counter is cast in a matte-black leather finish to complement the midnight aesthetic. In contrast to the gloomy surroundings, a quick injection of yellow outlines the profile swooshes. What’s more, the remaining real estate is anchored in a vibrant shade of pink that animates the tread, lace loops, the trim of the tongue and the veining of the heel, accentuating the near triple-black effort.
While we await to see if the aforementioned pair will receive a broader release, enjoy a detailed look at the Nike LeBron 21 “Black/Pink” below before heading over to nike.com to shop the model’s current roster of colorways.
