For the 2022-23 NBA season, LeBron James and Nike Basketball presented the LeBron 20, which was welcomed with open arms as a new, low-cut approach from the duo. While the silhouette still continues to receive some action as it slowly begins to disappear from shelves, the LeBron 21 is ready for battle. Not yet revealed by Nike, the new sneaker builds upon the success of its predecessor with a build that’s noticeably less bulky than his shoes prior to the 20.

As we await the proper showcase of the sneaker, early looks continue to pop up with a “James Theater” pair being the latest to surface. Our brief first glance at the pair indicates that a color arrangement of primarily-bright red, maroon and off-white is joined by iridescent detailing at the heel and an icy translucent outsole. Its theme introduces the “James Theater” with a special tongue tag joined by an all-over popcorn graphic located at the sockliner.

At the time of writing, Nike has yet to officially announce the LeBron 21 and its debut colorways. However, this “James Theater”-themed pair is currently expected to land on shelves via the Swoosh and select retailers this November.
