Critics had a day in the field when images of a Nike LeBron 18 bearing the ‘GOAT’ emblems (the greatest of all time) surfaced shortly after LeBron James suffered his very first outing at the first round of the NBA playoffs. However, the shoe, officially dubbed “La Cabra”, pays homage to another GOAT contestant, WNBA legend Diana Taurasi.
A longtime carrier of exclusive LeBron signings under Nike Basketball and James’ co-star in Space Jam: a new legacy, Taurasi gets its first official sneaker, which pays homage to its Italian and Argentinian heritage, as well as its seemingly endless list of accomplishments. The shoe is predominantly black in style, backed up by an ivory heel flaunting written nods to its accolades. Its GOAT logo appears along the tongue and sockliner, officially branding it as La Cabra. An ivory and green outsole with black and red accents finishes things off below.
Priced at $ 200, Taurasi’s âLa Cabraâ LeBron 18 will be released on Friday July 2 via the SNKRS app.
