LeBron James Steps Up to the Plate With Nike Air Diamond Turf Tribute
Nike take King James out to the ball game for the latest instalment in the imaginative LeBron Watch program. The Air Diamond Turf – a shoe made famous on the feet of Deion Sanders – serves as inspiration this time.
The Diamond Turf was a dual-sport dominator worn by Sanders during his incredible career, which was actually two careers in one: the superstar excelled in professional football and major league baseball. His insane talent is said to have deeply inspired a young LeBron.
Nike turn the Diamond Turf into a triple threat, applying its menacing aesthetics and signature midfoot strap to the LeBron 15 for an unmistakable tribute. To complete the homage, the special edition make-up adopts the Diamond Turf's signature white, black and red.
The Nike LeBron 15 'Diamond Turf' was released on Nike SNKRS the moment they were revealed on-court and promptly sold out. Word has it we will see a wider release through select retailers soon. We'll keep you updated!
