This is going to be a clutch season for LeBron’s sneaker line. With a move to the wild west, and new rule changes allowing players to wear their hearts on their feet, all eyes are on him and Nike. They’ve got the possession and the clock is running out, they just need to learn from J. R. Smith and shoot their shot.
Last season, the LeBron 15 Watch made a splash by giving us PE colourways inspired by Nike’s heritage. Anticipating they’ll do the same for the LeBron 16, we’d like to make some suggestions. Ignoring the most likely offerings — no one needs to prompt a Kobe-honouring Lakers colourway — we’ve whipped up a selection of the most hype homages Nike could deliver. These are the LeBron 16 Watch colourways we need to see this season.
