“LeBron James” might not be the first name you think of when you think of fast food, but the Los Angeles Laker recently took inspiration from it for their latest Nike LeBron 19 release.
Previously seen in a predominantly White ensemble, the upcoming pair indulge in a predominantly Blue tone on their technical upper. The base mesh layers then don an all-over mix of graphics featuring burgers, hot dogs, pizza, and more. While the “Fast Food” theme may just be a playful theme for James’ 19th signature sneaker, it may actually nod to a viral internet moment that “the kid from Akron and her 2008 USA team had at a random gas station: apparently having had limited options, the crew are seen eating Wendy’s burgers. Underfoot, sturdy Air Max cushioning and accompanying crown-like tread forgo any playful styling, instead opting for tones that don’t detract from the lively graphics that take up most of the upper. LeBron 19.
Enjoy official images of the upcoming pair and anticipate a Nike SNKRS launch near the end of the NBA season (mid-April).
