In September, LeBron James and Nike had the pleasure to unveil their latest footwear silhouette — the HFR x LeBron 16, at the Harlem Fashion Row Showcase Gala. During the reveal, the basketball player took the opportunity to pay homage to the unprecedented power and determination of African-American women. Defining them as "the strongest people on earth," LeBron takes advantage of his position to recognize their efforts.

For the luxe sporty sneakers, LeBron James and Nike tapped G.O.A.T and a New York-based collective (Harlem Fashion Row) that attempts to provide multicultural designers with the opportunity to enter and contribute to the fashion scene. Through this partnership the HFR x LeBron 16 was reimagined by female designers of color — Kimberly Goldson, Felisha Noel, and Undra Celeste Duncan.
