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!
