No holiday is quite like Valentine’s Day, especially when it comes to sneakers. And while every brand is quick to participate, few rival Nike. And this year, alongside its slew of offerings clad in pink and red, the brand is letting LeBron James play Cupid, arming him with a colorful and thematically appropriate LeBron 19.
At a glance, the colorway could easily be mistaken for an Easter celebration, as it’s packed with pops of mint and pastel yellows. Pink comes into play though, but only atop the midsole and heel in a bold and desaturated hue, respectively. White makes up the rest of the upper and tongue, balancing out many of the aforementioned elements as well as the purple accented laces, multi-colored air unit, and ornate floral mosaic on the tread. A richer bouquet of color then dresses the inner tongue, helping the air romantic in tandem with the arrow impaled basketball, heart-shaped hang tag and appearances of Cupid himself.
For a closer look at the Nike LeBron 19 “Valentine’s Day”, check out the official images below. It is likely that these will appear on Nike.com and select retailers later in February.
In other news, the Yeezy Boost 350 v2 Core Red is supposed to return this year.
