LeBron James will debut the Nike LeBron 16 King colorway on October 18th, when King James kicks off the NBA season with the Los Angeles Lakers in Portland.
This Nike LeBron 16 is a nod to the small forward position, which is part of Nike’s “1 Thru 5” Collection. It features a Red Battleknit upper with leopard print heels that pays homage to a classic Air Zoom Generation ad campaign during his early career. That same photo is used on the insoles, along with Metallic Gold accents on the Swoosh, heel tab, and tongue.
