We knew they were cooking up something, but we finally have decent shots John Elliott and LeBron James’ upcoming Icon collaboration. Showing off a street-ready baller in white and black, these fresh shots from Nike Basketball’s Tim Day give us an insight into the shoe’s construction.
Based on the LeBron 8, the shoe’s upper makes use of eye-catching overlays and stripes, creating a hypnotic aesthetic. There’s a streamlined leather tongue with sideways branding and a Swoosh on the toe vamp. Down below, we see a full-length Air Max unit and a translucent outsole.
We still don’t have any release for these, but as with most other John Elliott drops, we expect quantities to be limited. Who knows, Team Swoosh could be saving them for after the NBA Finals? We’ll keep you posted.
