We first caught a glimpse at John Elliott and LeBron James’ Icon collaboration months ago, but have been starved of any release details. Well, it looks like our patience has finally been rewarded, with Py_News leaking an August 15 (UPDATE: Reports now suggest an August 4 release) drop date for the eye-catching white baller.
Based on the Nike LeBron 8, the shoe’s upper makes use of unique overlays and stripes, creating a hypnotic exterior. A streamlined leather tongue with sideways branding and toe vamp Swoosh are exclamation points, while a full-length Air Max unit and a translucent outsole provides ample cush.
As with other John Elliott drops, expect quantities to be limited. No news on stocklists at this stage, but we’ll be sure to holler when we find out.
