Last Black History Month, basketball all-star LeBron James introduced his LeBron 15 sneakers on-court and he returns this year with the LeBron 16 sneakers. The sneakers are entitled 'Equality' to represent the cultural recognition of black culture throughout the month of February. The celebratory sneakers are circulating online with the powerful message of equality and to follow the theme, the shoes are set to launch on Martin Luther King Jr. Day on January 21st.
The design aesthetics boasts mismatching elements, translated through some monochromatic hues. The uppers are constructed from the label's signature Battleknit 2.0 material in black and white. It sits on top of an Air Max cushioned foundation and features branding accents of "LJ" and through the tooling system. To round off the entire piece is the signature lion emblem and the word "EQUALITY" on the heel.
