KITH NIKE LEBRON 15 Lifestyle "CONCRETE"
The entire KITH x Nike LeBron 15 Long Live The King Collection has been officially unveiled along with release information. The collection will include three pairs of the LeBron 15, two lifestyle iterations and one performance version.
The KITH x Nike LeBron 15 Lifestyle completely revamps the 15's upper while maintaining the original midsole tooling. Differing from the regular LeBron 15, this Lifestyle rendition opts for a more refined textured Flyknit upper as opposed to the more pronounced Battleknit. Hexagonal knitting is seen on the forefoot and heightened sock-like collar to provide flexibility. The medial side is adorned with a curved zipper for easy accessibility. The most dynamic design element of this new 15 is the strap system. Branded straps replace a lacing system and come in both full and half-length options. The full-length strap begins at a Velcro closure on the toe and revolves around the entirety of the shoe by fastening to the center air bubble on the outsole and then climbing up the midfoot and around the collar. The half-strap begins the same way but stops before rising to the collar. Each Lifestyle 15 is accompanied by two full straps and one half strap. This sneaker can also be devoid of straps, thus creating three different ways to be worn. The Lifestyle 15 is offered in two colorways, "Stained Glass" and "Concrete". The Stained Glass model is a multicolor knit comprised of shades of burgundy, navy, sail, and olive. The Concrete model features a blend of black, grey, sail, and white. The KITH x Nike LeBron 15 Lifestyle will retail for $230 USD.
The KITH x Nike LeBron 15 Performance features a luxury approach to the on-court sneaker. All core performance characteristics are maintained to fit the needs of LeBron James (who wore this pair on Christmas Day), while additional details elevate the sneaker beyond the lines. This model receives a Rose Gold colorway, as the Battle-Knit upper is draped in a faint rose tone. The key addition is a rose gold Riri zipper that runs up the center of the upper from the toe to the 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. Other details include a full sail midsole with matted air bags and metallic rose gold Swoosh logos on the heels. The Kith x Nike LeBron Performance 15 "Rose Gold" will retail for $200 USD.
The Kith x Nike LeBron 15 Long Live the King Collection releases this Saturday, December 30th, at hoopsneaker.com store.
