LeBron 17? ? @KingJames

Following in the footsteps of the Nike LeBron 15 and 16 before it, a ¾ cut remains with what looks like improvements on a BattleKnit upper and full-length, visible Zoom Max tooling. While all the main ingredients appear in tact from previous pairs, the overall onset looks to be much more aggressive.

A jagged collar speaks to such while the upper sports a shattered or exploded pattern.

Wasting no time, King James just popped up at Nike Campus in Portland in his new kicks.

Maybe Bronny will debut these on court for his Flight Club sponsored AAU team?

Following numerous leaks, Nike has shared official images and a September 27th launch date.

Designed by Jason Petrie, the latest LeBron takes elements of Battleknit and Flyknit for Knitposite – a heat molded fusion of the two techs for a fit that’s both soft and strong.

That’s not the only place they double down on tech. The heel features a high volume Air Max unit while the forefoot has articulated Zoom Air.

Peep the “Ashes,” “Future Air” and “Lakers” colorways below.
