Making its debut as part of the Space Jam: A New Legacy x Nike x Converse Collection, here is an official look at LeBron James’ next signatory sneaker, the Nike LeBron 19.
The Nike LeBron 19 will be taking center stage as it will be making in appearance in the film Space Jam: A New Legacy that will be dropping in theaters nationwide on July 16th. The Nike LeBron 19 will come equipped with a double-chambered Air Max unit in the heel as well as a newly shaped Zoom Air forefoot unit for a reliable underfoot ride for LeBron James. Jason Petrie (Nike Basketball footwear designer) explains that the new platform was inspired by the futuristic magic behind the movie.
“In designing the LeBron 19, we were definitely guided by what was happening in the film,” says Petrie. “We wanted to give LeBron a brand-new feeling that was synonymous with an otherworldly, space-age kind of look.”
Above you will find the Nike LeBron 19 in two different colorways, which include one pair done in Orange inspired by the Tune Squad uniform, while the second pair opts for a clean White and Blue finish.
Initial thoughts on the Nike LeBron 19? Look for the model to debut next month at select retailers and Nike SNKRS for $200.
