The first pair is titled “Akoya,” after a special type of oyster that carries pearls. The shoe was inspired by James' daughter, Zhuri, and is made to resemble the outer shell of the oyster. The uppers are pearly white with vibrant orange hits throughout the logos and heel of the shoe. The official color code reads Light Bone/Campfire Orange-Celestine Blue-Pink Rise-Dark Russet. They'll be releasing September 28, 2023 and will retail for $200. They'll be available on Nike SNKRS app and Nike retailers everywhere.

The second pair will follow a similar theme and is aptly titled “Abalone Pearl.” While the first pair resembles the oyster shell, this pair will mimic the priceless pearl within the oyster and pop with a crazy blue and green upper. The pattern on the uppers is iridescent and looks like the reflections of sea water and light bouncing off a pearl. The outsole will be an ocean blue color that extends up through the tongue and sockliner. No official release has been announced, but you can expect these to follow a similar release to their counterpart.

If you're able to get your hands on one of these, it's clear that you'll have to pick up the other as well and complete this awesome sneaker tandem. It'll be fun to see what other concepts the team at Nike can cook up for LeBron James this upcoming season.
