Nike has unveiled the first concept designs of the new 'Reverse Liverpool' colorway. LeBron James has a significant presence in the basketball world as one of the NBA’s greatest players, and now the famed athlete is making his mark on the sneaker industry. After investing in Liverpool F.C., in 2012, Nike designed a Liverpool-themed sneaker that honored the star’s acquisition. Now, the sneaker brand has dedicated another sneaker to that event, dubbed the ‘Reverse Liverpool’ colorway.
Liverpool’s signature red and green logo has been flipped on the sneaker, mixing a green synthetic base with red accents to outline the Nike Swoosh. The tongue features unique branding alongside a white and black Liverpool F.C logo on the heel.
No release date has been announced thus far, but interested consumers can expect the Nike LeBron 9 Low ‘Reverse Liverpool’ colorway to drop in the next few months.
