Nike LeBron 20
The Nike LeBron 20 – aka LeBron XX – is the twentieth signature shoe by Nike for LeBron James. Originally released on September 29th, the Zoom-assisted silhouette became the first model within LeBron’s signature line to debut as a low-top.
Taking inspiration from his sons Bronny and Bryce, the LeBron 20 was tooled as a gift from The King to the next generation. Understanding that younger players continue to gravitate towards lower, simplistic models, the LeBron 20 achieves just that through a supple embroidered upper and shadowed swooshes.
The silhouette boasts a similar court feel to LeBron’s past few ensembles. A top-loaded Zoom Air Turbo unit is inserted within the forefoot while a larger Zoom Air unit fills the heel. Taking the time to celebrate James’ two-decade-long dominance in the NBA, the LeBron 20 instills tributes from throughout his Hall of Fame career; such as the Nike Sphere sock liner that first appeared within the Air Zoom Generation and the appearance of a carbon fiber shank for the first time since the Zoom LeBron 5. The iconic Dunkman logo also makes a statement along the tread after last appearing on the LeBron 16.
The Nike LeBron 20 is currently available for a retail price of $200 in a full range of colorways that encompass everything from court-ready Lakers efforts to collaborations with Mimi Plange and UNKNWN.
