18 models in, LeBron James‘ signature Nike line has established a standard release rhythm: his latest silhouette debuts in the fall, and then its low-top version arrives in the early days of the following year. That routine is rolling right along on the LeBron 18, as the LeBron 18 Low has now been officially revealed in a “Fireberry” colorway almost a year to the day since the LeBron 17 Low dropped.

Interestingly enough, the LeBron 18 Low doesn’t look that much different from the LeBron 18 — a shoe that already featured a low-cut construction. Indeed, it appears to be more of a takedown sneaker in the mold of the LeBron Witness 5, as the standard Battleknit upper is swapped out for a synthetic ripstop material boasting the signature “Fireberry” hue. Cool blue fused overlay strips turn the temperature on the “Fireberry” down a few notches, with black mudguards, cut-off black Swooshes and smooth black heel pieces supplying further contrast. LeBron’s signature hits the tongue and his familiar Nike Basketball “LJ” logo appears on the heel.

Down below, midsoles mix a familiar heel Air Max unit with a ridged, extended blue heel clip. Moving to the forefoot, the LeBron 18’s standard Zoom Air setup is discarded in favor of soft React foam. High-tack rubber outsoles mix a duo of blue shades with final “Fireberry” accents to complete the look.

The Nike LeBron 18 Low “Fireberry” will debut on the Nike Japan webstore in the coming days, and is priced at a tax-included ¥19,250 JPY (approximately $184 USD).
