Apart from its monochromatic look, key details include translucent ovals on the tongue that show LeBron’s lion logo, a Nike Air hit and the King’s signature. If you peer into the insoles, you’ll also see a mosaic-style print that blends black, white and blue.

The Nike LeBron 18 “Sisterhood” is set to release on Nike SNKRS China come October 23, and will retail for $200 USD. A full global release will likely occur in the following weeks.
