Space Jam: A New Legacy‘s theatrical debut is right around the corner, so some of Looney Tunes‘ biggest stars — and fiercest rivalries — are taking up residence on Space Jam star LeBron James‘
First up is Bugs Bunny, taking a break from berating his old foe Elmer Fudd to pester Marvin the Martian. Bugs and Marvin’s pair offers a split upper that melds a gray lateral side with a pink Swoosh and a black medial side with volt accents, giving off slight Air Max 95 “Neon” vibes. Heels are split between gray and military green, and the left shoe’s inner tongue shows Marvin’s peeved visage while the right shoe’s inner tongue displays Bugs’ hand holding his signature carrot.
Next are Tweety and Sylvester, who discard the yin and yang style of Bugs and Marvin in favor of a light gray build with a black gridded pattern plus black and yellow accents. Sylvester’s menacing paw can be seen on the left inner tongue, Tweety’s yellow feathers and bright blue eyes on the right inner tongue. There’s a crackling print on the black heel cage, and Sylvester’s famed “Sufferin’ Succotash!” catchphrase is printed on the Air Max cushioning unit.
Both pairs also features some similar accents. There’s a Tune Squad badge on each shoe’s outer tongue, while insoles feature a full-color print of their respective characters. Cartoon-ized versions of LeBron’s crown logo are embroidered on each heel, and both boast a hybrid Air/React cushioning setup for a comfy feel.
Expect this duo of Space Jam-inspired LeBron 18 Lows to release via the Nike webstore on July 16. Each is priced at $160 USD.
