With #LeBronWatch back in full swing — and having just entered Air Max Month — it should come as no surprise that Nike has something special in store for the crossover. In years past we’ve seen LeBron’s signature line assume the colorways of various Air Max icons, from atmos Air Max 1s to OG Air Max 95 Neons. He even had his own Air Max 95 “Gametime” release back in 2015. For 2021’s celebration of Air, it appears that the King will return to Sergio Lozano’s masterpiece for a special mismatched Lakers-themed release dubbed the Nike Air Max 95 “LeBron”.
Set atop black mesh uppers, tongues, and sole units, the pairs alternate between purple and gold nubuck uppers, each with its opposing color decorating the eyelets, rear panels, and Air supports. Embroidered ankle Checks arrive in white across both shoes, as too does the King James logo at the tongue, and both rest atop a smokey translucent outsole. Underfoot we find an oversized #23 at the forefoot, while midfoot shanks in purple and gold read out the King’s long list of accomplishments thus far. The release also arrives packed in a special co-branded box.
Though a release date for the Nike Air Max 95 “LeBron” is yet to be revealed, you should expect to see pairs hit select stores and Nike.com this month, with a high likelihood of release on the 23rd.
