Officially unveiled as part of NIKE, Inc.’s “Space Jam: A New Legacy” collection, the Nike LeBron 19 only surfaced on the feet of the man behind the shoes. Most recently, LeBron James’ 19th signature sneaker emerged in a “Black / Red” (“Bred”) colourway via unofficial images.
While the upcoming silhouette retains a tall silhouette like the Nike LeBron 18, the latest model conspicuously swaps the FlyKnit construction on the upper for a semi-sheer, synthetic-backed mesh. Technical specifications for the upcoming ‘Akron’s Child’ basketball sneaker were not revealed, but the pair’s grid-like pattern on the upper half is reminiscent of the Nike React ultralight cushion proposals. of yesteryear. Angular molded overlays connect to the midsole and heel to provide support and stability to the current Los Angeles Lakers superstar; the components feature the traditional Nike LeBron branding. The tabs forgo the airbag handle, but feature a decoupled unit towards the top of the tab. Underfoot, James’ latest offering – which was likely designed by Jason Petrie and his team – goes for a cushioning setup reminiscent of Nike Vapormax. Given the 36-year-old’s love for visible Air tech, it’s likely the 19 tooling will be the latest iteration of the basketball-specific Max Air that LeBron helped debut in 2009. .
No official Nike.com release date has been disclosed by the brand, but this LeBron 19 is expected to hit retailers before the end of 2021. In the meantime, enjoy images of the pair ahead.
