Tomorrow, the 2023-24 NBA season begins with LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers taking on the championship-winning Denver Nuggets. Supporting King James in his 21st season, Nike Basketball and the now-oldest player in the NBA have assembled the LeBron 21. Various colorways have already released, with many more on the way, including this newly-spotted “Abalone Peal” pair.

Tapping into the LeBron 21’s oyster shell theme, the “Abalone Pearl” recreates the iridescent gemstones produced by abalone mollusks across the upper of the sneaker. Vibrant hits of blue and green intertwine while key details such as the Swooshes on each side and hourglass-shaped heel make a return. A deep ocean blue adorns the tongue, lining, laces and midsole while a semi-translucent off-white hits the rubber outsole.

At the time of writing, Nike has yet to officially reveal the LeBron 21 in its “Abalone Pearl” presentation. Stay tuned for updates regarding its release details as we currently expect it to land on shelves at some point during December via Nike SNKRS and select retailers at a $210 USD price point.
