Taking part of the Space Jam: A New Legacy x Nike x Converse collection is the debut of the LeBron James’ next signature basketball shoe, the Nike LeBron 19 – which makes an appearance in the film releasing in theaters nationwide July 16th.
The LeBron 19 boasts a double-chambered Air Max unit in the heel and a newly shaped Zoom Air forefoot unit for a reliable underfoot ride for James. According to Nike Basketball footwear designer Jason Petrie, the new platform was inspired by the futuristic magic behind the movie.
“In designing the LeBron 19, we were definitely guided by what was happening in the film,” says Petrie. “We wanted to give LeBron a brand-new feeling that was synonymous with an otherworldly, space-age kind of look.”
As of now, only two colorways of the LeBron 19 have been revealed including an Orange-based pair inspired by James’ Tune Squad uniform along with a White and Blue makeup.
