At the end of 2015, LeBron James locked himself with Nike by inking a lifetime contract with the brand. And ahead of his 20th season as a professional ball player, James has plans to ramp up his product releases with a brand new signature model as well as bring-backs from the early stages of his career. Falling in line with the latter is the return of the Nike LeBron 2 “Maccabi” — a PE from 2004 that the perennial All-Star sported in a pre-season game against Maccabi Elite Tel Aviv.

The mid-cut sneakers are set to return with all of their original design details. A regal color palette touches down on The King’s second signature silhouette as metallic gold accents make an appearance on the mesh underlays, Nike lettering that graces the removable ankle straps, heel piping, “LeBron” spell outs down the spine, midsoles and the intricate laser patterns that beautify the collars. Smooth leather overlays atop the uppers, mudguards and patterned molds down below complement with stark white finishes.

A launch date hasn’t been unveiled yet, but the release of its official images could be a hint that its release is right around the corner. Expect Nike and other retailers to drop these for $215 USD.

Elsewhere in sneakers, early images of the Patta x Nike Air Max 1 “Orange Blaze” have popped up.
