Drawing inspiration from one of the hottest tennis silhouettes, the Air Tech Challenge II worn by Andre Agassi, the LeBron 16 “Hot Lava” comes equipped with a splatter-pattern heel on two different options. The clean white iteration maintains the look of the original, while the sleek black model takes on an “Away” color scheme. Both pairs have been crafted from ribbed nylon and micro-perforated leather, materials which are present in the original 1991 sneaker. Additionally Swoosh branding in the “Hot Lava” hue can be seen on both the lateral and medial sides.
Agassi famously won the 1990 French Open wearing the “Hot Lava” colorway along with a matching polo shirt and black denim shorts.
For more sneaker drops, Toy Story 4-inspired adidas UltraBOOST 19s are set to release alongside the film’s debut.
