Similar to the revolutionary approach accomplished by the formidable duo of Michael Jordan and Jordan Brand in the realm of athletic footwear, the sneaker giant has been partnering with the self-proclaimed King, LeBron James, for nearly a decade to recondition the way we look at street-ready athletic apparel. Although the newlywed years of the mid-2000s produce similar product to what is typically seen in the Jordan line, the recent seasons have introduced consumers to more adventurous lifestyle ranges. This holiday season, Nike’s Sportswear line will release a capsule collection with LeBron James featuring newly designed garments as well as iconic silhouettes from the storied history of Nike. Complete with some personal storytelling, the most hyped piece will definitely be the 100% recycled wool Destroyer Jacket, adorned with the embroidered text “Vivat Rex” translating to “long live the king.” Rounding out the collection the two heavyweights in their own right offer; a down bomber jacket, the 1823 Rugby made of 100% cotton, the N98 Track Jacket, the AW77 Fleece Hoodie, a pair Nike Air Max Conquer waterproof boots, a duck boot-inspired AF1 Low, and a 100% organic cotton pocket tee. Featuring the fusion of contemporary and heritage pieces, this back to the future collection may have a radical impact on the course of the athletic apparel world as we know it.
