Nike Basketball has often plumbed the depths of King James’ personality and pastimes for his signature releases, but what sets the “Stewie Griffin” apart from its counterparts is its quite literal interpretation of Stewie’s aesthetic. Looking as if it was pulled straight out of a cartoon, the low-cut LeBron 18 features thick black borders on its upper, plus a red forefoot detail with a yellow “button” graphic inspired by Stewie’s signature suspenders.
Toeboxes, tongues and top eyestays alike take on a similar yellow tone, while the mudguard and heel clip supply a light blue shade that draws from Stewie’s shoes. The remainder of the shoe’s upper is dressed in white, midsoles combine a React forefoot with a gray heel Air Max unit and blue/black laces tie the look together.
At the time of writing, a release date has yet to be announced. However, more info is likely to surface soon.
