LeBron James’ second campaign in LA – and seventeenth overall in the league – is set to commence in October, and joining him on the journey are a grip of new teammates and a brand new game shoe known as the Nike LeBron 17. The gradual revealing of the shoe, which began on Instagram with LeBron himself working out in a pair, continues with this first look at one fit for either Home or Away uniforms as it features a purple Max Air heel unit as well as a visible Zoom at the forefoot and a mixed blend on the newly engineered Knit upper. Rather than steady strands creating the standard multi-colored effect, this new pattern sees swirls of colors embedded into the textured upper, shedding light on one of the many innovative aspects of the LeBron 17 shoe. With the black/white pair set to drop in early October, the wait for this Lakers colorway shouldn’t be too far after.
