LeBron James‘ affinity for Nike‘s Air Max 95 is well-known, so Nike Basketball is nodding to the King’s favorite lifestyle silhouette with a new LeBron 18 Low “Greedy.” Reminiscent of the Air Max 95 “Greedy” in palette and colorblocking alike, this low-cut LeBron 18 combines the Swoosh’s finest hoops technology with plenty of Nike Sportswear lifestyle flair for a fresh take on a classic.
Uppers are composed of synthetic TPE material in black and white and use signature mismatched “Greedy” colorblocking. The right shoe boasts volt and red accents while the left shoe looks to orange and teal, but signature detail on both feet is provided by the tongue. The right tongue is done up in black, the left in purple, and each features a two-tone Air Max 95-style badge that’s been altered to read “LeBron.” This altered branding continues on the volt (right) and orange (left) insoles, both of which add a “LBJ” motif to their standard Nike Air logo. Bulbous heel Air Max units complete both looks by matching the color of their respective insoles.
The Nike LeBron 18 Low “Greedy” has already released at select Asian stockists, and will likely arrive in the US later this summer. Its MSRP is set at $160 USD.
