Shortly after LeBron James hit Madison Square Garden in the Nike Lebron 15I’m King” PE, he entered the playoffs with a new colorway. King James continued the #LeBronWatch trend with a pair inspired by the Nike Shox BB4 from 2000. Worn by Vince Carter, the original model incorporated the then-popular Shox technology in the heel with black and silver present on the upper. Hints of purple were also added to the heel to add flair to the futuristic looking sneaker.
