The Nike LeBron 16 King is inspired by the African meaning of LeBron James’ name and his first ever poster. A bold red battleknit upper with highlighting leopard print detailing is seen on the heels which pays homage to the classic Air Zoom Generation ad campaign during LeBron James’ early career. Also, the insoles feature the same image, while metallic gold accents for the Swooshes, tongue and heel tab, followed by a white rubber sole tops it all off.
Who’s ready for the NBA season to begin. With the new rule allowing NBA players to wear whatever color sneaker they want as part of their uniform, it’s about to get real interesting all around the NBA. Although we don’t know what every player will be wearing on opening day, what we do know is that LeBron James will be wearing the Nike LeBron 16 King to kickoff the NBA season once his Los Angeles Lakers take on the Portland Blazers on opening night.
New colorways of the Nike LeBron 16 will continue to drop this season, and the next one in line is this King edition. The style is part of Nike’s “1 Thru 5” collection, and it sports a bold red battleknit upper with highlighting leopard print detailing on the heels which pays tribute to the classic Air Zoom Generation ad campaign during LeBron James’ early career.
