After teaming up with Nike to produce a Lakers-inspired Air Max 95, LeBron James is shifting his focus back to his basketball sneaker lineup to roll out a LeBron 18 Low “LeBronold Palmer”. The iced tea and lemonade beverage motif was previously utilized on models like the LeBron 9 Low in 2012 and then later on for the LeBron 12 Low back in 2015.

Vivid in every sense of the word, these refreshing hoop kicks commence with a “White Lime” hue that paints over the synthetic materials that make up a majority of the upper, and come neighbored by “New Green” complements that build out the ripstop tongues and laces. Tropical leaf patterns snatch most of the attention here as they are visible through the mid-foot and toe boxes. Additionally, “Bright Mango” blasts navigate their way onto the Swooshes, tongue signatures and LeBron crowns on the heels.

If you move downwards, you’ll discover more of the same color-blocking, the most pronounced being the “New Green” heel counters and “Bright Mango” Air units out back. Forefoot sections are where the Nike React cushioning is housed, and it is predominantly surrounded by a bright white midsole.

No official release details have been announced yet, but it’s likely that Nike and other retailers will be dropping these in the coming weeks for $160 USD.
