The Swoosh has recently been inspired by LeBron James’ on-court storytelling to not only give his earlier creations a throwback makeover. But also to dress its celebrated lifestyle styles in branded sequels. The LeBron 9 Low’s “Reverse Liverpool” is the Air Max 1‘s response to the Nike Dunk Low’s declaration of the four-time winners’ affection for “Fruity Pebbles.”
The upcoming proposal flips back the reverse aesthetic seen on the September release of the LeBron 9 Low. Moreover, it is in homage to The King’s 2011 purchase of a 2% stake in the company. It has since grown to a $32 million investment. The latter, which moves the team’s signature teal greens into a darker color range, has a cracked leather panel below that is anchored in a jet-black treatment. Moreover, The midfoot and heel counter overlays are embossed with the Fenway Sports Group and “You’ll Never Walk Alone” logos.
The model’s fundamental components, such as the vamp and tongue construction, are encased in a crisp white mesh that matches the color of the Swooshes and L.F.C. branded insoles. The Club’s signature “Action Red” accent claims the exposed Air Bag. And its adjacently situated sock liner in conclusion amid a covered-cream sole unit and speckled green tread underfoot.
On the other hand, check out the duo of colorways seen on the Off-White x Nike Air Terra Forma.
