LeBron James has shared the villainous counterpart of his Space Jam-inspired footwear ”Tune Squad,” the Nike LeBron 17 ”Mr. Swackhammer.”

Debuted during the second half of the 2020 NBA All-Star Game in Chicago, the latest iteration was named after the fictional Space Jam villain and arrives in its animated colorway. Its neon green Knitposite upper reflects Mr. Swackhammer’s extraterrestrial skin color, accentuated by various hits of kaleidoscopic hues. His scaly appearance can be found on the texturized dark green tongue, while his iconic purple suit lands on the contrasting throat. Branding hits can be found on the Space Jam insoles, mini Swooshes on the tope caps and the basketball star’s blue and green logo on the tongue, finally resting on a blue cushioned Max Air midsole.

The Nike LeBron 17 “Mr. Swackhammer” drops February 19 on Nike SNKRS for $225 USD.
