When news broke that there was to be a sequel to Space Jam releasing in 2021, we're sure that you (just like us here at SF) felt conflicting emotions. On one hand, excitement would have boiled to the brim at the thought of reliving a quintessential 90s moment and, on the other hand, you're probably already prepping yourself for the disappointment that seems to inevitably come with movie reboots of that golden era. With LeBron James replacing Michael Jordan as the leading star of the sports comedy, it's only fitting that LeBron's signature shoe receives a movie-themed make-over. If the final cut of the film is as looney as this Nike LeBron 17 Low – we're in for a wild ride.
Combining fun and thoughtful details with the latest Beaverton tech, the LeBron 17 Low 'Tune Squad' embodies the film's clever fusion of real-life professional sports and the wacky and wonderful world of Looney Tunes. The Swoosh has been made from a grey fur like squad leader Bugs Bunny, while the overall colourway resembles the team's original uniform. Bugs' catchphrase 'What's Up Doc?' has been embroidered inside the tongue, and King James' 'LJ' crown makes its appearance on the heel.
The Nike LeBron 17 Low 'Tune Squad' will hit retailers on February 15 for $160 USD, so hop on in to your local Foot Locker if you're looking to cop.
