John Elliott's Nike LeBron Icon Returns in 'Volt'
John Elliott's collaboration with Nike and LeBron James is set to make a comeback in the Swoosh's most ubiquitous hue.
After debuting in 2018, the Elliott-designed LeBron Icon is back in 'Volt'. Like the original releases, the kicks take cues from the LeBron 8 and pair that shoe's tooling with a semi-translucent upper that's marked by a collage of overlaying panels and stripes throughout. The latest version appears to be a bit of a spin on the popular Sprite-inspired releases of old, not only employing 'Volt', but also adding a little bit of blue to the mix.
Rumours indicate a potential debut via Elliott's site on April 23 to coincide with the release of a new 'Volt'-coloured capsule collection of apparel. Stay tuned for official word.
