Nike Launches LeBron Watch Program

Nike tonight launches the LeBron Watch Program — a new initiative that follows James as he unveils PE iterations of the LeBron 15 inspired by iconic Nike athletes and the many Swoosh classics that they’ve worn. The King kicked off the program tonight by lacing up the Nike LeBron 15 “Waffle,” a sneaker inspired by the time-honored Nike Waffle Trainer from 1972.

James, a sports aficionado and sneaker fiend like many of us, grew up in the ’90s watching his favorite Swoosh athletes dominate their respective eras in signature styles and more. He odes their greatness with this innovative new program. And, what’s even more exciting, many of them will be up for grabs.

Now some of James’ new PEs he’ll keep to himself, but he’ll also make five of these PEs available to Nike members through Nike SNKRS. The shoes will be available as soon as he steps on the floor wearing them. Pretty cool, right?

“When I was a kid, the athletes and the shoes represented in this series inspired me to chase my dream of one day becoming a professional athlete,” recalls James. “It’s important to me to share these stories and inspiration with my fans. I want them to be a part of every step of my journey, so I’m excited we’re making these shoes available to them.”

adidas Harden Vol. 1 “Disruptor” Launches on January 28th

James Harden’s move to the point guard position this season has been a revelation. His numbers have never been better, and he was recently voted a starter in the upcoming NBA All-Star Game.

Like the Beard’s game, this Harden Vol. 1 is both subtle and vibrant. Dressed in a white mesh upper with a stark black contrast across the toe, gold detailing finishes off the lace tips, three stripes branding and the coveted Harden Mark.

Take a closer look at the adidas Harden Vol. 1 “Disruptor” below and expect the release on January 28 at adidas.com.

Converse Launches the Pro Leather ’76 – A Lifestyle Sneaker with Basketball Roots

Drawing from the sneaker’s past while pushing the shoe into the future, the Converse Pro Leather returns in two monochromatic colorways. The “Triple Black” and “Triple White” iterations of the newly upgraded Converse Pro Leather ‘76 merge the classic style with a Nike Lunarlon sockliner for added comfort and cushion. The result is a lifestyle sneaker that is at home on the streets of the city, while still maintaining its vintage basketball roots.

Shot in black and white to fuse an old-school vibe with contemporary urban fashion, the Pro Leather ’76 lookbook sees the sneaker photographed against the backdrop of iconic New York City basketball courts. The photos start at the storied Rucker Park, Sarah D. Roosevelt Park and Rutgers Park locations, where you might have expected to see the sneakers when they first dropped 40 years ago, before moving out into the sprawl of the city where you’d expect to see them today.

Take a look at the complete photo story from HYPEBEAST below to see the sneaker transition from its roots on the court to its future in the streets and shop the style for $ 70-$ 75 USD at Foot Locker or on the official Converse webstore.
