LeBron James has been all over the globe after 16 1/3 seasons in the NBA, so his LeBron 17 “Currency” nods to his international lifestyle in a unique fashion: with a colorway and details based off of legal tenders from different parts of the world. Stately but subtle, this new style moves away from the loud color schemes used on models like the “Red Carpet” and “2K,” letting its details do the talking.

Uppers are constructed of a crisp black Battleknit, with both the collar and heel clip shaped into crown-style points to acknowledge LeBron’s “King James” nom de guerre. Rich iridescent pops that shift from green to purple are present on the tongue and throat, with a reversed dark money green Swoosh on the aforementioned heel clip.

Despite the clean stylings, the shoe’s signature detail is present on the insole. Printed money symbols from different regions of the world grace each footbed, nodding to the global currency that basketball has become, and — of course — the almighty dollar. An iridescent purple outsole that houses forefoot Zoom Air and a heel Air Max unit completes the look.

The Nike LeBron 17 “Currency” is available now on the Nike webstore. MSRP is set at $200 USD, the price of more than a few Taco Tuesdays.
