Kith x LeBron XV collabs to drop on Bron’s birthday.
Kith and Nike are celebrating LeBron James’ 33rd birthday this Saturday, December 30th by releasing the “Long Live The King” collaborative project, featuring three new versions of the LeBron XV.
Kith-founder Ronnie Fieg worked with Nike to develop two new variations of the LeBron XV silhouette – one designed for performance and the other for lifestyle.
The Lifestyle LeBron XV includes branded straps throughout the refined textured Flyknit upper, replacing a lacing system. The straps come in both full and half-length options. Additionally, the Lifestyle LeBron XV can also be devoid of straps, thus creating three different ways to be worn. The kicks will release in two colorways, a multicolored “Stained Glass” version and a black/grey “Concrete” joint. Both will retail for $230 USD.
The Performance LeBron XV features a luxury approach to the on-court sneaker, including a rose gold zipper that runs along the center of the upper from the toe to the ankle collar. This zipper conceals a leather panel that displays asymmetric branding, with “Long Live the King” on the right shoe and “Kith x Nike LeBron XV” on the left. The zipper’s execution features openings on the sides which allows a myriad of lacing options, as the laces can be woven over, underneath, and to the sides, depending on the wearer’s preference. The Kith x Nike LeBron Performance XV “Rose Gold” will retail for $200.
The Kith x Nike LeBron XV “Long Live the King” Collection will be available exclusively at Kith shops and Kith.com. The online release will be at midnight 12AM ET.
