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.
