UPDATE: Don't forget these blue boots amongst the barrage of Cyber Monday releases coming your way today if you're in the US.
We understand that, in the current sneaker climate, it is kind of necessary for a shoe to have a bit of a story behind its colourway. We also understand that, after 13 different models of a signature shoe and countless different make-ups, it can take a whole lot of creativity to come up with a fresh idea. This new LeBron release though? It's a bit of a stretch. Dubbed the LeBron 13 'Balance', it's meant to symbolise a balance between LeBron's team (the Cavs – as represented by the orange) and his 'tranquility' (as represented by the blue). We don't know about you but 'tranquility' isn't the first quality to come to mind when we think of King James – nor do we know why it is represented by the colour blue? That said, this is hands down one of the best colourways to hit the LeBron 13 so far and isn't that all you really need? If you're keen to get your balance in check, select Nike Sportswear accounts will be stocking these from December 1st.
