The Nike LeBron 16 hasn’t even been out two months and we’ve already been flooded with a slew of colorways. We definitely aren’t complaining because having variety is always a nice option, and fans may love the LeBron 16 ‘King’.
The LeBron 16 features the updated Battleknit 2.0 while the cushion, which was utilized in its predecessor the LeBron 15, is the bouncy Max Zoom Air setup — albeit with some minor modifications like the removal of the tendril.
The LeBron 16 ‘King’ sports a rich maroon upper with striking leopard print graphic heel panels. It is inspired by the African meaning of LeBron’s name, according to Nike, and is a tribute to James’ legacy on the court.
While LeBron James is on the Lakers now, this colorway seems to more in-line with the Cavaliers. However, the new NBA uniform policy allows players to maximize their creativity when it comes to their shoes so it’s an exciting time for players to show out on and off the court. If you were wondering how the shoe does on the court WearTesters has a Nike LeBron 16 Performance Review for you.
The Nike LeBron 16 ‘King’ colorway releases on October 18 for $185. Big kids sizes release on the same day for $160 — and while that shoe features the same upper the cushioning uses midfoot and heel Air Max units with a Zoom Air forefoot unit.
Do any of you own a pair of the LeBron 16? How do you like the shoe so far?
