Looking to bring A New Legacy to a whole new generation, Warner Bros. is set to bring us back to the Jam with Nike. As we get ever closer to seeing LeBron & the Looney Tunes take on the Goon Squad, Nike & Converse have given us a look at the product line-up to accompany the movie. The range focuses on bringing the audience along for fun-filled experience through a wide variety of products, including the long-awaited debut of the Nike LeBron 19.
Presenting a collection fit for kids & adults alike, the designers have curated an assortment that touches on the history of the Looney Tunes universe. Aiming to transport fans to bring the best version of themselves, there’s sure to be a piece for every fan looking to rep their squad.
Starting at the footwear, the all-new Nike LeBron 19 is finally being presented in two different colorways; a lighter “Sweatsuit” version & a “Jersey” colorway. One of the main highlights of the new model is the updated sole. Constructed from newly developed double-chambered Air Max units in the heel & a new Zoom forefoot unit combine to keep LeBron on the court longer & reduce his vertical lag while leaping. Carrying a futuristic feel to them, the “Sweatsuit” colorway also pay tribute to Nike with maps of their campus & Warner Bros. lots around the uppers. Moving through the film, the “Jersey” colorway comes to life as the Tune Squad gets closer to the final showdown.

Three different Nike LeBron 18 Low colorways bring some of the franchise’s most iconic face-offs to life. Bugs Bunny takes on Marvin the Martian, Tweety Bird & Sylvester clash and Road Runner continues to frustrate Wile. E. Coyote on the mismatched pairs. Each shoe carries nods to characters from the Looney Tunes universe that while they clash, ultimately make each other better. Adding to their existing models, Nike also has a range of Air Force 1 designs coming featuring a host of characters.
Complimenting Nike’s silhouettes, some of Converse most iconic models make their mark in the collection too. Starting with the Chuck 70 High, we can find chenille applique logos all around the pair. A Tune Squad logo adds to a printed lining & subtle satin accenting make for an elevated pair of CT70’s. Following the 70s, Converse also adds a Chuck Taylor All Star to the line-up. Nodding to Lola Bunny, the pair also features Daffy Duck and a subtle digital decal around the black canvas uppers.
Adding to the Chucks, Converse continues their Lola Bunny appreciation on the clean Pro Leather “Lola” with more stand-out details. Featuring a graphic with LB’s iconic spinning ball, Lola’s face can be found embroidered on the inner heel of the pair. In a final shout-out to arguably the Tune Squad’s best player, the Star Chevron logo brings a furry feeling with it.
Rounding off the collection is a strong & diverse apparel line, ready to drip out each respective squad this summer. Nike & LeBron branded Dri-FIT uniforms for the all-star teams arrive with engineered prints around them, priced at $120 for the Tune Squad’s jersey, $110 for the Goon Squad’s jersey; shorts are $90 for each team. The uniforms are complemented by a Tune Squad Jacket ($200). Converse keeps things more relaxed off-court, adding a hoodie ($95) to a tee ($ 50) & shorts ($85) combo. Completing the full product line-up Converse also brings a 360 backpack ($90) to the party to fit everything you need to be game ready at all times.
