and the Los Angeles Lakers may be missing the playoffs this season, but the
king of basketball is actually happy with how things go in every aspect of his
life. LeBron will release a new show, and the release date is out now.
The Lakers had a frustrating season, but the Lake Show supporters can soothe their pain with the new “Minneapolis Lakers” colorway of the Nike LeBron 16. The shoe features a palette that was called upon for Lakers legend Kobe Bryant’s past signature models and inspired by the team’s time in the Land of 10,000 Lakers back in the 1950s. The shoes have a soft grey Battleknit for the upper portion. Thee’s powder blue/gold accents are added on the outsole, sockliner, and Swoshes for some contrast. There’s a Zoom Air cushioning units with a speckled splatter print. The heel tab has embroidered stars.
LeBron’s signature lion head embellishment on the heel has another clever nod. The left shoe has a graphic features gold eyes. The right shoe has blue. LJ16 and 23 are added across the tongue/throat, and LeBron’s number is on the insole for a complete look.
The Lakers may not be part of the playoff race this year, but you have something else to look forward to. April 19th is the date you should pay attention to. The new sneaker will cost $185.
looking forward to his summer as he will have the first free summer since 2005.
“Absolutely I’ve thought about how my summer is going to be,”
LeBron said. “It’s unfortunate that we’re so far out of the postseason right
now and looking like we won’t be a part of it. Obviously, the first thing that comes to mind is just taking
care of my body. I’ve played a lot of
basketball, played a lot of minutes over my 16-year career. So getting an opportunity to have a
couple more months to take care of my body and refresh my mind and my body, is
going to be very key going into my 17th year. So I’m looking forward to that.”
