Even at 36 years old with 17 seasons under his belt, LeBron James still manages to thrive when playing above the rim. And so as a result, the Nike Basketball team has decided to fittingly revive James’ “Dunkman” motif onto the LeBron 18.

The “Dunkman” alter ego dates all the way back to 2003, The Chosen One’s rookie season, where he was captured gliding through the air for a one-hand-cocked-back slam dunk in his debut game against the Sacramento Kings. Since then, the Nike team has oft-used this alter ego as a theme and applied it to a barrage of his shoes such as the LeBron 9, LeBron 10, LeBron 11 and more. After taking a breather from arriving on recent silhouettes, its thematics have returned in its classic black and green schemes on the LeBron 18.

Knitposite 2.0 uppers are draped with a stark black background, and contrasted with “Electric Green” hits that disperse to the Swoosh branding, lion eyes down the throat, heel tabs and throughout the base layer all-over in polka dot fashion.

The sole unit delivers an even more vibrant allure as its treading and rear Air bubble are also tinted with an “Electric Green” hue. To keep the tradition going, the “Dunkman” shadow is printed in oversized fashion across the bottom of the forefoot.

Be on the lookout for this pair to release via Nike and select retailers come January 30 for $200 USD.
