The King Pays Homage to Vince Carter with LeBron 15 ‘Shox BB4’ LeBron Watch PE

One of these days, LeBron James is going to stop killing the sneaker game. Lucky for us, that day isn’t today, because last night he broke out the LeBron 15 ‘Shox BB4’.

On Sunday, James took the court against the Indiana Pacers in his latest LeBron Watch PE. This time, the shoe is inspired by the Nike Shoe BB4, Vince Carter’s most well-known unofficial signature model. It was the sneaker Carter was wearing when he dunked over 7-foot-2 center Frederic Weis in the 2000 Olympics.

James’ sneakers adapted a silver and black colorway of the Shox BB4. All the details are spot on as well, down to the five dots along the ankle and the vertical striping on the heel tab.

There’s no word on whether this LeBron Watch PE will become available yet, but for now we c all we can do is admire the images below.

What’s your take on LeBron’s newest PE? Would you like to see it release? Let us know what you think, and stay tuned to WearTesters for more.

  1. Great color way. Definite cop for me if released.

    Anyone else out there ever play in VC IV’s? One of my all time favorite shoes. I still have a fresh pair I’ve been thinking of breaking out. Not sure on how they’re gonna hold up though.

  2. These are the best #LebronWatch yet. I would be first in line (or whatever the online equivalent is) to cop if these released.

    Coincidentally, I was playing in my white/red OG Shox BB4 the day before this game. The forefoot zoom air bubble deflated on the right shoe. My black/purple pair is still going strong, though.

    1. No warranty on that lol. Are you playing indoors or outdoors? I’m kind of worried about the traction on a 10+ year old shoe indoors. Seems like the rubber may dry out over time.

      1. Strictly indoors on these. The traction pattern is just straight, no nonsense herringbone (forefoot, at least) and is still amazing.

        The drying out rubber has caused the glue to fail on the shox pods, though, so I’ve had to reglue them a few times. The back of the sole is kind of integrated with the back heel tab, though, so everything stays intact even with the glue failing.

        1. Good to hear. I’ll be breaking my VC IV’s out this week. Got a pair of Harden VOL 2 id’s that came in last week so I’ve been giving them the run through. Didn’t love them at first, but after a few wears, they’re ok.
