The rollout for the Nike LeBron 17 has featured a handful of colorways thus far, but has yet to include new makeups for the LeBron Watch program seen on LeBron James' 15th and 16th signature basketball models, until now.
Thanks to retro_bomin_6, we now have a first look at a new LeBron 17 that appears to draw inspiration from the "Black Infrared" Air Jordan 6. It features a black and red Knitposite upper with a red "Dunkman" lace lock—possibly inspired by the aforementioned Jordan model, and "LeBron" written in a font reminiscent of Nike's Flight logo. Around this time last year, news broke that LeBron Watch will be hitting James' current silhouette at the time—the LeBron 16.
The official release info regarding the "Infrared" Nike LeBron 17 has yet to be announced.
