UPDATE: The “Starting 5” LeBron 16 — as the name has been revealed — will be the first of five upcoming releases and is slated to hit shelves starting on Saturday, Sept. 15. Retailer Jimmy Jazz has confirmed that its 163 – 21/23 Jamaica Ave, New York location will be carrying the sneakers in “extremely limited quantities.”

Just hours ago we presented an exclusive look at the Nike LeBron 16 “Fresh Bred,” now an additional colorway has surfaced potentially carrying on Nike‘s “What The” theme.

A complete contrast in comparison to the black and red iteration, you’ll find multicolored weaving on its new Battle Knit 2.0 upper. The gusseted tongues see burgundy with chenille detailing on the left and an animal-inspired print on the right. The theme is carried on thanks to more contrast between the left and right sneakers from James’ lion head logo on the right heel and his “LJ” stamp on the left. The outsoles also offset one another among further intricate details.

At the moment there’s no confirmed launch date on the potential Nike LeBron 16 “What The,” but rumors are circulating that we may see a release on September 15 or September 22. Stay tuned for additional information and let us know how this iteration compares to the “Fresh Bred” version. LeBron fans can also check out the official trailer for his Student Athlete documentary.
