Over the course of the 2018 NBA regular season, Nike created special pairs of the LeBron 15 for King James to rock on the floor. Each of the pairs painted LeBron's 15th signature model with colorways inspired by some of Nike's most iconic silhouettes. Today, LeBron starts his quest for a fourth championship against the Indiana Pacers in Cleveland and it looks like the #LeBronWatch will continue for the playoffs as well.
This latest pair uses Vince Carter's Nike Shox BB4 silhouette as inspiration. To mimic Vinsanity's classic sneaker, the 15's Battleknit upper is split into a black top and silver bottom. Other recognizable hits include familiar silver detailing on the toe and side panel, as well as a royal blue heel to represent the BB4's Shox cushioning.
If Bron's pair for Game 1 is any indication, it will be interesting to see what other pairs Nike has cooked up for him to wear throughout what will likely be another deep playoff run.
