The talented menswear designer John Elliot works with NikeLab once again, but this time in collaboration with LeBron James in creating the 'Icon sneaker'. The iconic basketball player showcased the black and white version of the sneakers on his customary pre-game catwalk towards the locker room. The online debut takes place on Elliot's Instagram page, documenting the sneakers themselves, as well as shots of James wearing the silhouette both on the court and after the game.

The Icon sneaker silhouette boasts a transparent mid-top upper construction combined with a blend of white leather materials, as well as black and white synthetic materials. It takes on a full-length white Air Max midsole influenced by the signature LeBron 8 silhouette. Branding detail of the Nike swoosh is found on the toe box. Currently, the sneakers are set to drop later this year in August.
