Hey LeBron, What Are Thoooose?!
While Kanye West has moved on with adidas, Nike has yet to move on from Kanye West and for good reason, too. Most of the people buying LeBron James' sneakers probably never have and will never own the Nike Air Yeezy 2. So what does the world's greatest brand do? Make something extremely similar for their premier athlete in hopes that it sticks with the mainstream sneaker consumer. What you're looking at is the Nike Air Akronite.
The silhouette debuted back on October 15th exclusively in Ohio for kids, but perhaps Nike has plans on making it available for adults in the near future as well. Or this could be a player exclusive just for LeBron James. Details are still unclear about the Nike Air Akronite for now, but we'll update you as much as possible in the coming weeks.
