KITH and Nike Joined Forces to Honor LeBron James

Although there's plenty of athletically oriented basketball sneaker designs to choose from, there's not nearly as many lifestyle iterations that appeal to consumers who have an appreciation for more modern and minimalist aesthetics, however KITH and Nike are on their way to bridging this gap with the release of three new designs.

The designs are a part of the KITH and Nike LeBron XV 15 collection, and therefore make use of statement embellishments that pay tribute to the basketball legend and his legacy, with the words "LONG LIVE THE KING" emblazoned in gold on the Velcro straps that overlay the uppers. In addition to the two designs that feature the Velcro straps, KITH and Nike created a pastel pink iteration that are accented with copper zippers.
