Nike LeBron 16 “King” Team Red/Metallic Gold-Multi Color

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.

Nike LeBron 16 “1 Thru 5”

After launching last week in the elegant Harlem’s Fashion Row edition, the Nike LeBron 16 is ready to be unleashed once again in a familiar color concept that should have sneakerheads and LeBron fans in a frenzy. The “What The” styling typically refers to colorways of the past, but for the newest model, Nike Basketball is looking to the future as this release acts as a mosaic of the first five colorways of the shoe. “Fresh Bred” (the black/red), King, “SFG”, “20-20”, and “I Promise” all play a role in the composition of this audacious colorway, all while emphasizing the notion of LeBron James playing all five positions on the court.

The Nike LeBron 16 What The is officially nicknamed “1 Thru 5,” and the sneaker features a mashup of colors. The left shoe’s BattleKnit upper is covered in multicolor with a white leather heel featuring the signature LJ crown logo and the word sixteen. For the right shoe, its upper is covered in an oreo-like theme with a black heel that features a debossed lion head with gold eyes and Swoosh branding. The tongues for both also sport different themes, followed by mismatching graphic insoles, speckling on the midsole and more multicolor on the outsole top it all off.

Ahead of its official debut, the Swoosh is already set to release a Nike LeBron 16 What The colorway. The “What The” theme goes back to 2007, when Nike Skateboarding introduced a mash-up concept on the SB Dunk Low that created the staple design for Nike Basketball.Next up, the Nike LeBron 16. The shoe features a Multicolor BattleKnit upper with one heel done in White and the other in Black. James’ signature “LJ” crown logo appears on the left shoe with “Sixteen” underneath, while the right sports the models signature debossed lion head with Golden eyes and Swoosh logo. Other details includes an exotic print on the right tongue and the other in a Deep Red tone. Mismatched insoles, multicolored rubber and icy outsoles completes the design.

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.
