LeBron James made a huge career change earlier this month, making the long-rumored jump from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Los Angeles Lakers. It should come as no surprise that a new signature LeBron sneaker is coming as well.
Today, a photo of the LeBron 16 leaked out. Naturally, it comes in a Lakers colorway, featuring gold logos.
Via Bleacher Report:
More on the LeBron 16 release, from Sneaker News:
The site thinks we may see these released in September, a few weeks before he makes his Lakers debut.
This first look reveals the same visible Zoom/Max Airbag that debuted in the LeBron 15 model, but a completely redesigned upper that includes a modified Flyknit upper constructing. Branding is minimal once again, as a smaller Swoosh sits on the exterior heel piece that also features the lion crest logo debossed onto the material. The LJ crown logo is also featured on the tongue.
LeBron’s new signature shoe typically debuts in September, so stay tuned for an official unveiling of the Nike LeBron 16 soon as we near the 2018-2019 NBA season.
We're sure he'll be selling plenty of these out in Los Angeles.
