Most of the shoe is constructed with beige-toned knitted uppers, contrasted by bright graphics on the tongue and heel. Set atop a blue tongue is a set of gray rubber overlays detailed with LeBron’s signature lion motif, his signature and “AIR” branding. Round yellow laces complement the tongue’s blue tone, while the heel features a giraffe-like pattern of red, yellow, navy and black patches. There’s semi-translucent heel support layered over these graphics around the rear quarter, seamlessly blending with the shoe’s chunky white midsole — gold and black lion stripes around the heel finish off the shoe’s bold design.
No official release dates have been confirmed, but this iteration of Nike’s LeBron 18 is expected to release next month on Nike’s website for $200 USD.
