Nike LeBron XVI Low “Black Python”
The Nike LeBron 16, as the name suggests itself is the sixteenth signature shoe by Nike for LeBron James and designed by Jason Petrie. LeBron's officially debuted back on September 7th, 2018. As summers are generally low-stop sneaker season, Nike's LeBron 16 Low has been showing itself in natural makeups recently, and the latest one is a chic yet straightforward combo of black, white and volt - and of course the premium python skin detailing thus the name. This colorway of the LeBron 16 features white branding and a black upper.
Though the shoe features a slim cut with mesh used to create the black upper on the midfoot and forefoot, the heel and the tongue both depict a slightly rough appearance of python print leather for the perfect mix of sport and grandeur. Let's talk about the heel. The detailing is worth noticing. You won't see the standard lion face on it -the typical classic Nike Air hit. As far as the heel tab is concerned, it is a yellow Air Max Plus-style TN badge that follows the recent tradition of the line to conceal fine details in the spot. The white midsole and white laces give the perfect contrast while the volt Zoom and volt Dunkman logo present on the outsole's complete the look of LeBron 16 Low and Black Python.
The LeBron 16 is a stylish and low cut model, so it hasn't gone through many changes or alterations. It features a gorgeous black knit upper, and skin detailing replicating Python skin along with neon yellow accents on the insole and the max air unit.
For branding, the 16 Low sports small Swoosh embroidery displayed on the lateral tow. The remixed crown logo is debossed right into the heel of the LeBron 16 Black Python.
The special insoles with the inscriptions "LeBron" and "James" are on the left and right side, respectively.
The shoe is all set to make its mark and is going to be officially released on Nike.com for $160 on 8/1/2019 – save the date.
