LeBron James and atmos team up for some LeBron 18 Low heat
atmos and Nike’s had a very long and fruitful partnership through the years with all their grail-worthy releases. In the same light, LeBron James has done his fair share of work with the Japanese-turned global retailer, dropping his signature shoe in iconic Nike collab colorways. With the LeBron 16 Low, atmos and LeBron dropped a ‘Safari’ and ‘Clear Jade aka Elephant’ set that definitely were highlights for the shoe’s run.
This year, atmos and Nike team up once again, this time using the LeBron 18 Low, now doing the popular ‘Viotech’ colorway which is inspired by the atmos Air Max 1 release from 2003. Incidentally, the Viotech AM1 dropped the same year Bron was drafted into the NBA. From the gum outsoles to the purple Swoosh and earthy colors used on the upper, the shoe is a worthy rendition of the classic AM1 sneaker.
Aside from the ‘Viotech’ LeBron 18 Low, atmos also created the LeBron 18 Low ‘Sakura’, a shoe influenced by Japan’s colorful cherry blossoms. With a sakura-riddled Swoosh to the mix of blue, pink, and jade green throughout, the Sakura LeBron is made even special with LeBron’s crown logo adorning a couple more details to make the shoe stand out.
Both the LeBron 18 Low ‘Viotech’ and ‘Sakura’ are slated to drop this Tuesday, April 27, via the Nike webstore (nike.com/ph). Each pair retails for Php 8,295 if you’re looking to pick up either or both pairs this week.
