Workwear has had a huge influence on both fashion and sneakers, as we’ve seen Japan’s humble double-knee pants and split-toe work boots appropriated time and time again in the past. . But rarely have the tools of construction workers made their way onto the scene the way they do now with the “Hard Hat” Nike LeBron 19.
Right off the bat, the inspiration is crystal clear thanks to the shoe’s hi-vis yellow colourway. The hue dresses near every part of the upper, contrasting with the light gray and transparent accents that appear along the sole, collar and tongue. Additionally, atop many of these same fixtures, hits of black add a number of overt nods, such as the striped Swoosh and crane print on the heel. The forward-facing LeBron branding, however, sticks to the usual designs.
For a closer look at the Nike LeBron 19 “Hard Helmet”, check out the official images below. It is likely that we will see sizes on Nike.com and at select retailers very soon, so hold on tight.
