The Nike LeBron 20 is still in the midst of takeoff as the “Time Machine” colorway kicked off the launch last year. The silhouette has been in James’ rotation since summer as Bronny and Bryce were seen wearing the sneakers regularly at the AAU Circuit.
The King’s line continues with a new flame within the torch as Bronny and Bryce bring their youthful influence to the sneaker as a new model, the Nike LeBron 20 NXXT, gets a collab with FaZe Clan. Back in 2020, Bronny James became the first high school athlete to sign with the Esports and gaming group FaZe Clan.
Our hope is that our first collaboration with Nike solidifies gamers belonging in the same realm of professional athletes.
The design of this shoe is inspired by the analogy that just like motherboards buried underneath the shell of technology, all great talent comes from beneath, and we all use different internal functions to power us as athletes and gamers.JVY, FaZe Clan’s Creative Director
This Nike LeBron 20 NXXT gets inspired by FaZe Clan’s team colors with red and black accents throughout. The upper has stitched Black webbing across the light grey base layer, almost giving the sneaker a digi-print finish. The tongue and laces also appear in black, which corresponds with the leather overlays on the heel and toe.
The Nike LeBron 20 offers a double-Swoosh feature with a holographic Swoosh stitched in Red and a smaller grey Swoosh embroidered in grey. The upper sits atop a white midsole and semi-translucent red outsole finished with a grid tread with a cushioning setup that is still unknown. An embossed FaZe Clan emblem on the tongue completes the sneaker.
The FaZe Clan x Nike LeBron 20 NXXT drops on March 9, 2023, for $160 on SNKRS and FaZeClan.com. However, sources tell Nice Kicks that a February 10 release may be in the works at select retailers. For more sneaker news and release dates, follow Nice Kicks on Instagram.
