Even heroes have heroes.

Such is proven on King James’ next retail release: the Nike LeBron 17 “Infrared.”

Inspired by Michael Jordan and the Air Jordan 6 in storytelling and color blocking, this pair pulls directly from the Black/Infrared Air Jordan 6 Mike wore en route to his first NBA championship – ironically enough defeating the Lakers.

Hot hues and lace locks all play to such a story with other nods also showing love to MJ.

Like what you ask?

Well, the font used on the 23 tongue tagging is eerily similar to the socks MJ used to wear game in and game out in the ‘early 90s.

Sporting a black Knitposite upper with infrared highlighting the cushioning and detailing, look for the Nike LeBron 17 Infrared to release on January 8, 2020.
