For Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Playoffs against the Indiana Pacers, LeBron James decided to rock a one-of-one LeBron 15 inspired by Vince Carter's Shox BB4. During Game 2, King James decided to lace up a pair that will actually be making its way to retailers in the near future, a "Bright Crimson" colorway of his 15th signature model.
The "Bright Crimson" LeBron 15 splits the upper horizontally in similar fashion to the BB4-inspired pair with black Battleknit used on the top half and grey used on the bottom. Black is also used on the heel branding and leather tongue tab. Bright crimson hits can be seen on the ankle collar and Flywire lace loops, while more contrast comes from a sail midsole, black-speckled heel, and heel tab.
Maybe wearing this pair will provide a better outcome for LeBron and the Cavs than their unexpected Game 1 loss. Anyone looking to pick up their own pair of the "Bright Crimson" Nike LeBron 15 will get the chance on May 3 when they release at select Nike Basketball stockists for $185.
