Debuted in 2009, the Nike‘s LeBron 7 is one of the most highly-regarded models in LeBron James‘s signature Nike Basketball line. Now, the beloved model is available for the very first time in a “Red Carpet” colorway, the same makeup that marked the beginning of its influential journey.

The first Nike LeBron shoe ever made by Jason Petrie — the designer who’s crafted every one of the King’s signature models since, all the way up to the current LeBron 17 — the “Red Carpet” boasts a striking palette that’s fitting of a world premiere. The upper is constructed of a black weave, white leather toebox/mudguard, and a white heel collar. Powerful accents are then doled out by way of an embroidered teal midfoot Swoosh, matching trim on the top eyestays/tongue and a teal/red heel badge. LeBron’s signature graces the tongue in red, and a textured LBJ detail also hits the lateral heel.

Down below, cushioning is provided by a full-foot Nike Air Max unit, dressed in the same rich teal tones as the upper. “Two” and “Three” appear on the left and right shoe’s toe, respectively, and a two-tone outsole with a special seal completes the look.

The Nike LeBron 7 “Red Carpet” will release on at retailers like Overkill on October 29, almost a full decade after LeBron debuted the design during a November 2009 game against the New York Knicks in which he dropped 33 points, snagged 8 rebounds, dished out 9 assists and swiped 3 steals in a 100-91 victory. The MSRP is set at $200 USD.

In the meantime, Nike is joining various other footwear imprints for this week’s Halloween-themed sneaker drops.
