Nike’s got a surprise #LeBronWatch release for his biggest fans today as the famed “Diamond Turf” edition appears in the original red colorway.

Just because the NBA is taking a break does not mean that the Nike LeBron 15 is doing the same. This is also true for the Nike LeBron Watch program which sees the LeBron 15 get covered in iconic colorways of Nike’s storied past. Today Nike surprised us all by releasing the Nike LeBron 15 Red Diamond Turf which if you remember LeBron debuted way back in April.
The Nike LeBron 15 Diamond Turf that pays tribute to Deion Sanders’ Diamond Turf trainer, already made its debut and recently LeBron James just confirmed that an alternate red pair will be dropping this summer. LeBron James wore the style on-court and the sneaker is basically covered in a red and black theme. The sneaker’s battleknit upper is detailed with the shoe’s signature mid-foot strap and Diamond Turf logo. A black midsole and white outsole finally complete the design altogether.
Believed to be a collaboration wit Kith, this LeBron 15 features a white Flyknit/Battleknit upper with an embroidered floral print in gold, green, and red wrapping around the entire shoe. Additional details include a gold zipper running from the toe up to the tongue which reads “LONG LIVE THE KING” when zipped-down.

Discussions regarding LeBron James’ fifteenth signature shoe with Nike grow louder and louder as we near the shoe’s late-October release. The shouts waver in both directions, in favor of and opposed to. The latter, of course, is already turning towards the former, given closer looks at the most intriguing style yet – the Nike LeBron 15 “Floral.”
First seen on James himself during a modeling sesh in the Kith Sport New York Fashion Week presentation, this iteration features zipped construction that essentially splits the shoe in two. Basking in gold, both the zippers and the track in which they set course, juxtaposition comes at the hands of embroidered floral print layered on each side of the aforementioned midsection break. When unzipped the centermost point of the shoe reads “Long Live The King,” an ode to James’ long tenured and royal moniker.
Nike LeBron 15 Ashes is set to kick off LeBron James’ 15th signature shoe scheduled to release at the end of October. Dubbed, “Ashes” this Nike LeBron 15 comes with flame logos on the inner tongues.Designed by Jason Petrie, the Nike LeBron 15 comes constructed with a Flyknit upper that provides strategic stretch, a locked-in fit and durability. Underfoot is a fully articulated cushioning system that combines Max Air and Zoom Air units, while a full-bootie construction offers a secure, one-to-one fit.
