Nike LeBron 16 “Equality” Shares Calendar Date with Martin Luther King Jr.

Before the culturally weighted impact of the Nike LeBron 15 “Equality” last year, LeBron James’ signature series was simply resonated within Nike’s annual Black History Month collection. Both included in the BHM collection and yet parsed out into something quasi-singular was James’ idea. His impact needed to span varying verticals. It, unequivocally, continues to speak truth to one of our countries greatest uphill battles.

Equality will return as a dominant theme for James’ signature collection now in its 16th installment. And no different from last year’s style, black and white mismatched pairs will remain the focal point.

True to its piercing theme, and from what we can see in this first preview, the Nike LeBron 16 “Equality” speaks its greatest truth through a Libra scale centered at its tongue. It’s the assumption that the presence of the scale is meant to show how underprivileged people are at a disadvantage when weighted against the scales of justice. It, too, could be thought to imply that the scales of justice simply need greater balance.

Official launch details for the LeBron 16 “Equality” have not been defined. However, several reports indicate that the shoe will be available on January 21 for $175.
