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.
