There’s an excitement surrounding LeBron James and his signature collection ahead of his debut season in Los Angeles. Following news that James would have a presence at New York Fashion Week this month during Harlem’s Fashion Row, where his upcoming Nike LeBron 16 could be a focal point, it aligns with James’ presence at the festivities last year when he walked in KITH’s runway presentation.
Aside from the newness of the LeBron 16, there’s a circular hype slanted back to the earliest moments of James’ signature collection. This past weekend, stock images of the Nike LeBron 3 “Christ the King” PE surfaced alluding to a potential retro of the famed exclusive that never released at retail.
Produced for Christ the King High School in Queens, New York, the shoe was gifted to the team, family and friends back in 2006. Now it seems as though a retail release is imminent, following the Nike Air Zoom Generation as the second Nike LeBron proper to retro. There was, too, the Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 1 “25 Straight” that released as one part of the Champions Think 16 Pack.
Nike has not officially released details regarding the Nike LeBron 3 “Christ the King” retro. Stay tuned to Nice Kicks for additional details.
