Last night, LeBron James took his talents back to the court for the Los Angeles Lakers, for the first time since Christmas, after suffering a groin injury. At the tip of each NBA Season, a new signature LeBron silhouette is unveiled, and around the All Star break, is when the low-cut editions release.
A Black and Tan iteration of the Nike LeBron 16 low has officially surfaced, and we have a first look for you. The sneakers sport the same wave bone sole and full-length, decoupled Nike Max Zoom bag as its high-cut predecessor.
A one-piece compression bootie construction is intact, along the upper, while the main build of the upper looks to sport a ballistic nylon overlay, along the neoprene bootie. An additional lateral fuse overlay has also been placed along the medial side of the sneakers for extra security and containment.
A synthetic leather heel panel is evident, borrowing the main set-up as its high-cut predecessor. Small swoosh embroidery is visible at the lateral toe, while the signature lion logo is placed at the tongue, and a crown is shaded into the heel. “LeBron” and “James” completes the insoles, and a medial black embroidered swoosh finishes off the rest of the shoes.
While the Nike LeBron 16 Low currently does not have a set release date, you can expect these to hit the shelves, and select Nike stockists later into the Spring, after the All-Star break. What are your thoughts of the Nike LeBron 16 Low? Will these meet the expectations of its predecessor? Drop your thoughts down below, and grab a First Look at the King’s newest kicks below.
