Nike is releasing the LeBron 18’s just in time for the NBA Finals — sort of. In the coming days, Nike will debut the latest additions to LeBron James’ sneaker line with the retail giant that feature a crossover of the four-pair collection will first be available in Greater China, with ‘Empire Jade’ dropping Sept. 21 and ‘Multicolor’ coming just three days after. Those pairs will not be available globally until Oct. 9.
The LeBron 18’s will feature key aspects of the Zoom Air and Air Max that will allow for maximum speed and force on the court, two things that James still plays well into in his 17th professional season.
The two final pairs of the collection will be released later on. ‘Los Angeles By Day’ will be available Nov. 6 globally, followed by ‘Reflections’ down the road around the holidays.
Each pair is a stark contrast to each other but keeps hold of James’ vision and personality.
