John Elliott and Nike Debut the LeBron James Icon Collection

LeBron James has been an admirer of John Elliott since 2014, the self-labeled brand based in Los Angeles that began back in 2012. Starting with elevated basics and now encapsulating a full ready-to-wear collection, Elliott began working with Nike about the same time James began to gravitate towards his designs.

Fast forward to modern-day, and the John Elliott x Nike LeBron Icon Collection is just days from release. Debuting in select regions this Saturday, August 4th, the mutual respect and admiration that Elliott and James carry for one another births this versatile offering that’s both focused and conceptually progressive.

Building the shoe from the ground up, Elliott credits James from making it all come together by adding the collection’s sock component and his curiosity for product design. “It’s a great story to tell, because it really hammers home my whole ethos as a designer, which is all about creating a layered look,” Elliott said.

The Icon sneaker, layered to add proportion with translucent components that crystallize foundational details, takes much of its inspiration from one of James’ most popular signature sneakers — the Nike LeBron 8. Hovering above full-length Air cushioning, a curvaceous ankle collar and front slope are met with overlaying lines and well-placed Swoosh branding. All of this aims to serve function, versatility and, as Elliott would proclaim, the ability to “move and transition.”

Smartly designed for comfort while one pushes through the boundaries of comfort zones, the John Elliott x Nike LeBron Icon QS and its supporting collection of tees, sweats, socks, cap and jacket, will release online on August 4th in North America, Japan, Southeast Asia, Australia and Brazil. Additional launches will follow on August 25th in China and on September 1st in Europe.

John Elliott x Nike LeBron Icon // Closer Look

Calling an audible but perhaps not unexpected, King James is elevating and revamping his retro line before it truly takes form via the John Elliott x Nike LeBron Icon.

Donning DNA from the LeBron 8, said to be Elliot’s favorite LeBron model, a closer look at the White/Black colorway sheds new light on the construction.

Top to bottom, the shoe features a leather tongue with inverted branding. From there, a myriad of overlays make the model more interesting but perhaps cause confusion — not necessarily in a bad way, though. A fused upper results in a rounded but still sharp shape, set off the most by sewn overlays on the heel and toe box. Lastly, a full-length Air Max unit and translucent outsole cap off the kicks.

Here’s How John Elliott Wore His Nike LeBron Icon Collab

John Elliott is best known for designing clothes, but he’s also pretty well known for wearing them.

The man managed to show his affinity for both last night as he donned his own John Elliott x Nike LeBron Icon while attending Game 4 of Cavs vs Celtics series.

From head to toe, JE kept it both basic and interesting. A backward Yankees fitted was worn as expected with perhaps the statement piece being a tie-dye oxford as if Jerry Seinfeld listened to Jerry Garcia. From there, cut off jeans set the stage for black crew socks juxtaposing the sail sneakers.

adidas Energy Boost Icon “4th of July”


The first non-running shoe to feature adidas Boost technology, the adidas Energy Boost Icon is now revealed in a special “4th of July” makeup. Taking the bouncy cushioning system and implementing it in a baseball cleat for quick acceleration off of the bags and all-day comfort for endless innings, these spikes are a game-changer. This American style code uses a white and grey base with patriotic pastels all over to create a celebratory colorway. Both the Three Stripes and reflective bottom flow in a gradient fade from red to white and blue, finished off with a gold American seal on the tongue. Watch for an array of players including Atlanta’s BJ and Justin Upton, Oakland’s Coco Crisp and Philadelphia’s Chase Utley wear these special edition cleats on Independence Day.
