UPDATE: Care of Nike HQ, we bring you some vibrant images of these colourful kicks. The Nike LeBron 13 Low 'Birds of Paradise' is available right now through select Swoosh stockists, including Foot Locker. You'll be able to cop them through Nike.com from August 19.
Although dubbed ‘Birds of Paradise’, these metallic Nike LeBron 13 Lows could easily be renamed ‘Jewel Beetles’. The multicoloured basketball beast's upper shines like an iridescent exoskeleton atop its full-length Phylon midsole and bulging heel Air unit. Complementing the recent drop of Kevin Durant’s KD 9 colourway of the same name, the Birds of Paradise LeBron 13 features black Flywire cables, laces and branding as ballast to the wild mesh upper. This polychromatic drop is perfect for those wanting to add a little razzle-dazzle on (and off) the court.
The LeBron 13 Low Birds of Paradise will take flight on August 19 via select Nike retailers.
