Alongside Kevin Durant – who claims the upcoming pair ranks in his top 3 favorite models worn by his iconic neighbor – and the surrounding basketball ecosystem, the anticipation surrounding LeBron James’ 20th signature silhouette for the 2022-23 NBA season has continued to boil lately. weeks, having recently been treated to a “Violet Frost” offer. As new interpretations begin to surface, the latest proposal is to choose to pay homage to the King’s first championship ring in 2012.
A flipped aesthetic of the LeBron X Elite “Championship” shines through the all-black mesh construction and matching midsole with “University Red” and gold accents balancing the back half of the model. The latter scheme adorns the double-stacked Swoosh with the Yellow finish residing above the Metallic Silver offering done in Red trim. The presiding crimson tone is additionally applied along the tread and tongue lining while a seldom touch is also displayed to secure the midsection of the lacing structure. Capping off the 10th anniversary of his first NBA championship, the forefoot midsole features “Light Smoke Grey” graphics in remembrance of the defining year of his career and the palm fronds that surrounded James in South Beach.
Enjoy newly released images of the newest LeBron 20 below, as we’re tentatively slated for an October release, but that’s yet to be determined.
