The wait if finally over, releasing next week, here is an official look at the Nike LeBron 16 Fresh Bred.
The Nike LeBron 16 was designed by LeBron James and Jason Petrie. The model introduces Battleknit 2.0, an evolved version of the scalloped knit featured on the Lebron 15. Its structure increases tensile strength (important to contain James’s lateral force on court) and it has an elegant finish matching James’s current style. Other notable feature is its height as the lower collar allows LeBron (snd you) to move more freely. The new gusseted leather tongue allows for seamless entry into the shoe and for broader styling choices off court. A new detail explained on the shoe are the Red eyes on the heel lion emblems inspired by the iconic stare down by King James vs. Boston.
Underfoot, a simple evolution of the Max Air cushioning platform introduced in the LeBron 15 supports James’s dynamic desires. “LeBron liked the cushioning so much last year that we just focused on refining it,” says Petrie. “For this addition, we removed the tendril that connected the forefoot to the under-toe bag, and instead included an outrigger to create some additional support to complement the lower height.”
Look for the Nike LeBron 16 Fresh Bred to drop on September 20th at select Nike Basketball retailers and Nike.com for the retail price of $185.
