Tees from Nike LeBron 10 and LeBron 11, the sneakers LeBron is wearing during the NBA All-Star Game on Tuesday, have leaked online.
But the leaked shoes are not just for sale, the NBA said in a statement.
They are available in pairs of 10 and 11, and the Nike NBA 11 “matches the sneakers worn by LeBron at last year’s All-NBA Summer League.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Nike chief marketing officer Dan Piff said the shoe is a “world-class product” that “sets a benchmark for quality, comfort and design”.
The shoes are made from a lightweight, high-performance mesh material.
Nike has said the material is “100 per cent water resistant, made from the highest grade of synthetic fibres, and is the strongest in the world”.
The Nike LeBron 12 “matts the LeBron 11 and is available in a range of styles, from casual to formal”.
The sneakers have been spotted on the floor of a Los Angeles nightclub and in a New York nightclub.
In its statement, the league said the shoes are “available now and will be available in the coming weeks”.”
As we approach our 40th anniversary in 2020, we have always sought to celebrate our league’s legacy, and this is an important milestone,” NBA commissioner Adam Silver said in the statement.”
We will continue to build on this legacy with new shoes that reflect the innovations and trends that have defined our game and the players who have been part of it over the past four decades.
“The NBA has never taken on a shoe that is more important than its players and its history.
That is why we will continue our partnership with Nike to help them continue to make a statement on this great day.”
Nike said it has a “long-standing relationship” with the league and has collaborated on footwear for the past 40 years.
