LeBron James’ 20th signature basketball shoe with Nike isn’t even about to be released, and it’s already making waves. The Los Angeles Lakers forward teased fans with an all-pink colorway of the Nike LeBron 20 earlier this summer before making his Drew League debut in July.
Nike has yet to release official images, technical specs or a release date for James’ next shoe. But that hasn’t stopped the James family from making headlines. Both Bronny and Bryce James wore a never-before-seen colorway of the Nike LeBron 20 yesterday.
