LeBron James and John Elliott go waaaay back to the brand’s beginnings when it was operating out of a small room in a warehouse in California. It was the first time John supplied some threads to LeBron through the King’s stylist, and in 2014 the menswear designer and the mega-athlete met for the first time at an after-party in Los Angeles. Since then, this friendship and mutual admiration led to a series of collaborative footwear designs, all culminating in this Icon Collection that serves LeBron’s needs of traveling coast to coast and to the Pacific Northwest for his business meetings and other off-the-court ventures.
The LeBron x John Elliott x Nike Icon Collection includes the Icon QS basketball lifestyle sneaker that pairs a transparent upper with the pleasing full-length Max Air unit from the LeBron 8 signature shoe. Completing the capsule is the Nitrogen Pant that features a subtle side zipper that opens up an interior gusset, a clean and crisp bomber jacket, a hoodie, and socks.
