Nike Basketball and NBA 2K20‘s run of GE (Gamer Exclusive) drops is continuing with a new LeBron 17 “Bron 2K Playoffs.” Following closely on the heels of Giannis Antetokounmpo‘s NBA 2K-exclusive Zoom Freak 1 “All Bros 4,” this new LeBron 17 stakes a claim as the wildest GE yet.

Battleknit uppers are dressed in white, and accented with purple around the heel. Combined with black and yellow speckles on the midsole plus yellow laces and purple detailing on the Air Max and Zoom Air cushioning units, this provides a Los Angeles Lakers-esque base. However, these basketball-centric layers are juxtaposed with a healthy amount of lifestyle flair thanks to the throat, shroud and outsole.

An ivory-and-black zebra print swathes the lace shroud, surrounding LeBron’s LJ logo and special 2K hits. Underneath this sits leopard print, which adds a touch of contrast with its black and white mix. Even the outsoles get in on the printed party, with black and white zebra stripes crisscrossing over the rubber traction pattern. Leopard-printed insoles with special badges complete the look.

King James is no stranger to special 2K sneakers: he kicked off the slate of “Gamer Exclusive” drops in October 2019 with a regal purple LeBron 17, and also partook in 2K’s first-ever sneaker drop back in 2014 with a now iconic lion-printed LeBron 11.

Looking to secure a pair? Starting Saturday, April 18 at 10 A.M. EDT and running until the same time on April 21, if you win a MyPLAYER Nation playoff game you’ll be able to purchase a pair through the Nike SNKRS app, which must be linked with your 2K account. The retail price has yet to be announced.

Elsewhere, take a look at the upcoming retro iteration of Jordan Brand‘s classic Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Japan Grey.”
