Nike 'LeBron 13' spoilers: LeBron James wearing possible new design of sneakers in leaked photo


Nike has not released any details regarding the upcoming “LeBron 13 Lifestyle” but rumors have it that LeBron James himself was recently spotted wearing the shoes that are yet to be released under his line.

During a game at the Nike Basketball Elite Academy in Santa Monica, California,  King James was photographed wearing a mysterious new set of sneakers. Reports claim that the silhouette was similar to the previously leaked catalog picture where only the shadow of a shoe was projected on the screen.

According to Kicks on Fire, LeBron’s shoes incorporate what Nike calls the “Zoom Leap System” that has a linked propulsion and a cushioning described by the company as “hex-mex.”

Speculations suggest that LeBron 13 might be inspired by one of his teams, Cleveland Cavaliers, in which different shades of red will be used. The photo seemingly shows that the shoes have red for the upper part, bright crimson for accentuating Nike Flywire system, iconic Swoosh symbol and low-cut heel, and touches of black to contrast and bring out the design more. There may also be Hexagonal Zoom Air cushioning for the midsole and asymmetrical positioning of laces.

The said specifications seem to combine some of the features of LeBron 12 while upgrading others, such as the ultralight Flywire cables which adjust the shoes according to the user’s motion, megafuse technology that holds the foot while moving and hyperposite wings that provide support when making sharp turns.

After wearing the shoes in Santa Monica, LeBron has only been seen in public sporting his Lebron 12 Low, specifically the “Trainwreck PE,” Sneaker News noted.

Fans are hoping that with Nike launching of Kevin Durant’s signature shoes “KD 8,” they will get to hear more news about Lebron’s latest line.

Rumors suggest that LeBron 13 may either hit the market on September when the player goes to China for the Nike Rise tour or on October 10. The shoes come with the colorway of medium berry, pure platinum, Court purple and black. It may also possibly start retailing at a price tag of $220.
