Akron, Ohio, the hometown of LeBron James, served as the primary source of inspiration behind his thirteenth signature sneaker model with Nike, and that is where he recently launched the LeBron 13. A couple of days ago King James was present at the University of Akron for a LeBron James Family Foundation event where he officially unveiled the latest installment of his signature Nike silhouette before more than 2,000 people. It has also been revealed that among the upcoming colorways of the basketball shoe, one particular Nike release 2015 will be that of a “Halloween” inspired rendition.
The colorway that LeBron James unveiled at the event was the “Written in the Stars” iteration, which will be making its global retail debut on October 10th. The words “LeBron James Akronite 12-84” can be spotted on the sole. The numbers are the King’s date of birth, while it is also hinting that an “Akronite” colorway of the model could arrive at retailers in the near future. In fact, October 27th is going to mark the retail debut of an “Away” colorway of the LeBron 13 and soon after it might finally hit the shelves in the Halloween colorway too.
Not so long ago, LeBron James’ stepfather posted a photo on his Instagram account of a LeBron 13 iteration that has never made an appearance online until recently. The same LeBron 13 colorway, which appears to be Halloween-themed, was unveiled during the Periscope broadcast by Nike and apparently it draws inspiration from an iconic horror film franchise. For Halloween 2015, the LeBron 13 will hit the shelves in a Friday The 13th-inspired colorway. It is a predominantly white sneaker with the midsole sporting blood spatter graphics. The photos currently available do not provide a clear, proper glimpse at the unique-looking logo visible on the tongue, so sneakerheads will have to continue waiting for better shots.
It seems that quite a few colorways of the LeBron 13 are already scheduled to hit the shelves this month. Considering the theme of this particular Halloween-themed LeBron 13, the Nike release 2015 of this Friday The 13th-inspired colorway could take place somewhere near or on October 30th.
