LeBron James took the time tonight to show off a glimpse of his new signature sneaker, the LeBron 18 and it’s a lot different from what we’ve seen in the previous years. 

It’s crazy to think LeBron is on his 18th signature sneaker already but it’s here. The NBA Star finds himself in the latter part of his 17th season right before him and the Los Angeles Lakers try and take off in a Playoff run. While other LeBron models have been reminiscent of each other, this design stands out among the rest with a new futuristic upper split in half dedicated to speed and power. Boasting an Air Max unit in the heel that’s capitalized with a full-length Zoom Air Bag. The upper is composed of three different types of knitting’s from LeBron’s favorite tech, the 15’s Battleknit, the 16’s fined knit, and the 17’s TPU exoskeleton. This edition shows off a Glow Green design that’s capitalized by red accents and cream embellishments on the upper and rubber outsole. We expect a full range of different colors to drop very soon so make sure to keep it locked for all the upcoming colorways.


As of right now, a clear release date has not been announced but we expect the new LeBron 18 to release sometime very soon due to Giannis’ release going down later this month. You can expect to cop a pair at select retailers and Nike.com for $200 very soon in a full range of great debut colors. Check out the first look below and stay tuned for more details.
