LeBron James is expected to wear the Nike LeBron 16 ‘King’ on October 16th which is opening night. Now playing for the Los Angeles Lakers, the opener will take place in Portland.
This Nike LeBron 16 pays tribute to the small forward position which is part of the Nike’s ‘1 Thru 5’ Collection. Looking closer it features Red Battleknit across the upper while leopard print is applied around the heel which is a nod to the Air Zoom Generation ad campaign. You can also see the same photo from the campaign on the insoles. Finishing the look we have Metallic Gold on the Nike Swoosh, tongue and heel tab.
