The menswear designer took to Instagram to debut the collaboration tonight. Officially known as the John Elliott x Nike LeBron Icon, this all-new model uses a low-top silhouette with translucent and striped details—said to be a nod to James' multifaceted abilities—and a full-length Air Max midsole and outsole inspired by the LeBron 8, Elliott's favorite LeBron model.
According to an Instagram post by Elliott, the Icon's white-on-white colorway is a friends and family exclusive, while it looks like the white and black iteration will hit retail.
Along with the Icon sneakers, the John Elliott x LeBron collection will include the hat and socks worn by James ahead of tonight's Game 4. The full range will release in August.
UPDATE (05/22): Instagram leaker @py_rates has reported that the black and white colorway of the LeBron Icon QS JE worn by James as he arrived to the Quicken Loans Arena last night will be hitting retail for $250, and that additional promo colorways of the model will also debut over the next few months. As previously reported, the all-white version worn by John Elliott courtside at��Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals is a friends and family exclusive.
