Nike LeBron 16 “Oreo” Release info

The rollout of Nike’s LeBron 16 is in full swing. After debuting in a special “Harlem Fashion Row” edition for NYFW and then appearing in a clean “Fresh Bred” that boasted a striking lion graphic complete with glowing red eyes on the heel, the futuristic hoops sneaker has been unveiled in a makeup any long-time LeBron follower will be familiar with: a rough and rugged “Oreo.” The Battleknit upper is covered in the standard Oreo-style combination of black, white, and grey for a flecked look — but this Oreo pair is much more than just a classic colorway.

Each LeBron 16 aims to tell a story, and this pair showcases the King’s roots and support system as it nods to both his hometown of Akron and his three beloved children. The right shoe’s heel features a “330” hit — the Akron area code — while the left shoe boasts a “BBZ” embellishment, nodding to the King’s three kids: Bryce, Bronny, and Zhuri. A rich leather tongue with chenille embroidery hits adds a touch of premium flair, as does the leather heel cage and canvas heel strap. LeBron’s classic Dunkman logo also appears both on the outsole and the shoebox with a modern-day twist: he’s wearing the 16s instead of the Zoom Generation. Enjoy a first look at these new LeBron James kicks below, and keep it locked here for all breaking news on the LeBron 16.

The Nike LeBron 16 Oreo will be another familiar colorway of LeBron James’ signature line that will be releasing later this Fall/Winter season.Dressed in a Black and White color scheme. This Nike LeBron 16 features an Oreo-like BattleKnit 2.0 upper, with Black leather on the tongue and heel. Red contrasting accents throughout completed with a White midsole and translucent outsole.

Nike LeBron 16 LMTD “HFR”

Ahead of the official release of the LeBron 16, Nike partnered up with Harlem’s Fashion Row for a special take on the King’s upcoming signature shoe.

Celebrating LeBron James‘ fashion focus outside of basketball, the platform for multicultural fashion designers drew inspiration from the recognizable design of Hermès Birkin Bags. Influenced by the bag’s buckle system, the cream-colored look features a tan leather buckle ankle strap, complete with a LeBron-branded gold plate. Another notable design element is the lion logo at the heel, which has been embedded into the lacing system of the shoe and further exaggerated to give off more of a 3D appeal.

LeBron James has unveiled the Nike LeBron 16 earlier this week. The new campaign will have similar roots as last year with the debut during the upcoming New York Fashion Week.

The LEBRON 16 HFR, which stands for Harlem’s Fashion Row, is something to behold. It’s a special design that combines the world of performance and fashion. Harlem’s Fashion Row is a platform for multicultural fashion designers.

The shoe sports what seems to be a new rendition of the “Ghost” colorway equipped with a buckle ankle strap. The regular LEBRON XVI comes with the lionhead logo on the back of the shoe, but on the HFR pair it is used as part of the lacing system. The laces go through the lion’s mouth. That’s sick!

Stay tuned for more updates once available. Be on the lookout between September 6th and September 14th.

Nike LeBron 16 “Bred”

LeBron James has taken to his Instagram today to officially unveil his next signature shoe with Nike, the Nike LeBron 16. Pictured above, the Nike LeBron 16 comes constructed out of a Flyknit material on the upper with Swoosh branding on the ankles, the LJ crown logo on the tongue, and a debossed lion crest logo on the heel. The sole setup uses visible Zoom Max Air unit and is identical to the one used on the LeBron 15. This pair showcased by Bron comes done in a black upper with subtle University Red detailing. Current reports have the shoe pegged for a September 20th release date.

Nike Basketball and LeBron James are officially set to release his sixteenth signature with the brand, the Nike LeBron 16. Before the shoe debuts, LeBron James was spotted wearing them giving us a first look at the upcoming Black/University Red colorway.The shoe features a Flyknit upper with small Swoosh logos on the heel piece that includes a debossed lion crest logo. The LJ crown logo appears on the tongues atop a visible Zoom Max Air unit that was used on the LeBron 15.

We can expect new jerseys and new kicks for LeBron James’ sixteenth season in the NBA. The 3-time champion signed a max contract deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, and Nike is ready to join him on this potential final leg with a brand new signature shoe called the Nike LeBron 16. As the Swoosh typically does, the LeBron 16 will launch with some special edition colorways, but according to retailer Finish Line, the Nike LeBron 16 will indeed release on September 20th in a simple and standard Black/University Red mix – the same version seen on the feet of LeBron James at a recent workout in LA.

Nike LeBron 16 shoe in Lakers colors have leaked

Tuesday is a day when Lakers Nation can finally start to visualize what LeBron James will look like in a Lakers uniform.

The team officially unveiled their new skew of jerseys on Tuesday, which also coincided with a leak of the first images of LeBron’s new signature shoe, the LeBron 16, via Bleacher Report. The leaked images were, of course, Lakers colors.

Nike did a lot of different things last year with LeBron’s signature shoes, including the LeBron Watch campaign, which sold shoes James was wearing in real time on the court.

At first glance, the LeBron 16 has a little bit of a different texture on the upper from the Battleknit the 15s had. The heel also appears to be a little different with what looks to be LeBron’s lion logo etched on the back rather than the big Nike swooshes on the previous version.

There’s been no official release date set publicly, but LeBron’s latest signature shoe is set for a fall release.
