|Pics of LeBron’s second take on the Ambassador namesake, the Ambassador II, surfaced back in March first, and we recently saw pics of LBJ wearing them on his Asia Pacific Tour, but now we have some detailed photos of this low-cut silhouette, with China’s countryside as a backdrop.
The “ORAP” moniker is a new one, standing for “Outdoor Rubber Asia Pacific.” As mentioned in the aforementioned article, this specific model is designed as a cheaper alternative to the already familiar Air Max LeBron VII. Like the Soldier III XDR, this model features tougher rubber on the outsole, allowing outdoor play with a longer lifespan than traditional sneakers. The design is nice and simple, featuring an almost entirely-white upper, though heavily branded, highlighted with grey and red accents, all over a black midsole and red outsole.
In one of the most populous countries in the world, where space is a premium and an open court a luxury, it’s nice to see a sneaker designed for playing ball wherever a hoop can be posted.
