While his Lakers had a shocking finish to the NBA regular season – failing to even make the play-in tournament – LeBron appears focused in his workouts with long-time friend and former teammate Kevin Love while he practised in New York City with NBA training expert Chris Brickley. While he might be in the best shape of his life at 37 years old, the NBA future HOF’er appears to be taking another page out of Kobe Bryant‘s book as he teases his next signature sneaker with a low-top silhouette.
Nike LeBron 20 Release Information
Release date: TBA
Where to buy: TBA
The teased LeBron low-top sneaker appears as a hybrid between the infamous Kobe 5, Kobe 4, and maybe even a little Kyrie 1 thrown in for good measure on the medial side. However, LeBron’s decision to go low-top should come as no real surprise to those who’ve been keeping a keen eye on his footwear choice on the court. While he might be moving into the 20th generation of his ‘LeBron’ signature shoe line, he prefers to wear the LeBron 13 ‘Ambassador’ in most of his games. Is a shift to low-tops on the way for The King?
We love the all-over pink colourway that finds its way to the outsole, midsole, upper, overlays, and tongue of the shoe where LeBron has his signature logo. If this is indeed the LeBron 20, it will make way for a new outsole design deft of any large air bubbles that add cushion and weight to his performance basketball sneakers. It will also likely mark the moment LeBron passes Kareem Abdul Jabbar for the most points scored in NBA history – he’s just 1,325 points away from the 38,387 point mark.
