The cycle with LeBron James’ line of Nike releases has always been one of settling into his new designs with a bit of trepidation until the right colorway comes along. If his 13th release wasn’t quite love at first sight then this pair just may be the Lasik procedure that your eyes need.
The Nike LeBron Akronite Philosophy sets about the difficult task of telling the succinct story of the NBA player’s path up until now by way of graphic design. The colorful camo-inspired upper shows James’ journey from Akron to Miami and back while incorporating heavy doses of black to help ground the silhouette. Licks of hyper orange and blue lagoon also stand out in the mix, helping to make this one of the best releases we’ve seen for the sneaker yet.
The Nike LeBron 13 Akronite Philosophy will release at Nike retailers on Nov. 21 and will retail for $200 a pair. If you’re worried about what to wear with the sneakers, the drop comes with a matching T-shirt and socks as well.
