Calling an audible but perhaps not unexpected, King James is elevating and revamping his retro line before it truly takes form via the John Elliott x Nike LeBron Icon.
Donning DNA from the LeBron 8, said to be Elliot’s favorite LeBron model, a closer look at the White/Black colorway sheds new light on the construction.
Top to bottom, the shoe features a leather tongue with inverted branding. From there, a myriad of overlays make the model more interesting but perhaps cause confusion — not necessarily in a bad way, though. A fused upper results in a rounded but still sharp shape, set off the most by sewn overlays on the heel and toe box. Lastly, a full-length Air Max unit and translucent outsole cap off the kicks.
