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.

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.

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 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.

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.
