With the LeBron 16 set to release in early September, it is almost time to close the book on the Flyknit-equipped LeBron 15. Back in February, the bold silhouette helped blur the lines between lifestyle and function in conjunction with popular retailer, KITH. In accordance with All-Star weekend festivities, KITH debuted their first LA-based store with a release of four regally-designed LeBron 15 iterations. Finishing the King’s 15th signature sneaker off on a similar high note, KITH will be releasing the fifth and final version of this collection with the LeBron 15 “Closing Ceremony”, set to exclusively release at their retail space in Los Angeles this Friday. Gold, red, and green embroidery encompasses the majority of this iteration’s upper with metallic gold aglets and a silver zipper than runs from the top of its forefoot to the toe.
The KITH x Nike LeBron Performance 15 Closing Ceremony was revealed earlier this year, and the model is finally releasing to the public. Like the nickname says, this colorway will be the last iteration of the LeBron 15 line, as the Nike LeBron 16 is set to make its debut soon. The silhouette sports a mixture of Black and Multi-Color accents via a luxurious embroidered pattern flowing across its Battleknit upper.

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.
