Nike Hits Up Mimi Plange For A Special LeBron 18 Low Dedicated To “Higher Learning”

Nike Basketball has been tapping the archives to find inspiration for the Lebron 18 Low colorways. This time Ghanaian designer Mimi Plange was brought in to collaborate for a preppy take on the basketball performance sneaker.

Inspired by the Varsity Jacket, a mainstay in the student-athlete experience and American fashion, the ripstop-like upper is dressed in white with a suede mustard heel counter and crimson accenting on the no-sew overlays. Chenille hits are seen throughout the sneaker, with the Swoosh on the lateral side and patches on the heel and the medial side to resemble a letterman jacket. Full-length React with a large Air Max unit is incorporated for impact protection and cushioning and padding on the tongue and collar for a better fit.

The Mimi Plange x Nike LeBron 18 Low “Higher Learning” will retail for $160, with a stateside release still unknown. Please keep checking our Sneaker Release Dates page for any announcements on a release date when it comes.
