The Nike LeBron XVI ‘I’m King’ Pulls Inspiration From James’ Nickname


Nike and LeBron James are continuing the Kings ever-popular signature line with the new Nike LeBron XVI ‘I’m King’. James has been very that this shoe is his favorite one to date. LBJ and Nike Basketball are now sixteen shoes deep with his line and they only seem to be getting better year after year. Now, his newest shoe brings a fresh new look to the court and for the design, King James has once again teamed up with Nike designer, Jason Petrie, his long time friend and creator.

Dressed in a Black and Metallic Gold color scheme. This Nike LeBron 16 features a Black Battleknit upper with a matching heel piece. The shoe is accented with Metallic Gold, while having “I’M KING” debossed on the heel in bold lettering along with a Gold Crown printed on the insoles. Completing the theme is a Purple Dunkman logo on the heel of the outsole for a nice royal detail.
