Ahead of his first season with the LA Lakers, LeBron James has already picked out his kicks for his regular season debut. The new Nike LeBron 16"King" is inspired by the African meaning of his name and first poster. This Nike LeBron 16 is a nod to the small forward position, which is part of Nike's"1 Thru 5" Collection. It features a Red Battleknit upper with leopard print heels that pays homage to a classic Air Zoom Generation ad campaign during his early career. That same photo is used on the insoles, along with Metallic Gold accents on the Swoosh, heel tab, and tongue.
