2017 was the year that marked the debut of the Nike LeBron 15, which was designed by Jason Petrie. Through the LeBron 15, Nike also introduced two brand new technologies, namely Battleknit uppers and a cushioning system that combines Max Air and Zoom Air. Nike first released the LeBron 15 on October 28th, 2017 in an “Ashes” colorway that retailed at a price of $185. This year, Nike surprised everyone by also launching the “LeBron Watch” program that enabled them to own various LeBron 15 PE colorways that had been seen throughout 2018. It seems that Nike is bringing back the LeBron Watch program for a second 2018–2019 season.
An Overview Of The Nike #LeBronWatch Collection
For the LeBron Watch program, Nike specifically designed nine different LeBron 15 PE colorways for LeBron James to rock on the court. These nine colorways drew inspiration from some of LeBron James’ favorite Nike sneakers from the past, such as the Air Diamond Turf, Air Griffey, Air Max 95, the Waffle Trainer, and others. These nine special LeBron 15 PE colorways also paid homage to Nike’s longstanding and rich heritage. Since they were a part of the LeBron Watch program, these PE colorways eventually made their retail debuts on the Nike SNKRS app. Five of these nine colorways later hit the shelves at select House of Hoops locations too.
The LeBron Watch Program 2018-2019 Season Will Revolve Around The LeBron 16
It was LeBron James himself who first unveiled the LeBron 16 earlier this year, back in August. The LeBron 16 eventually made its retail debut in North America on September 7th via the Nike SNKRS app in a “Harlem’s Fashion Row” colorway that retailed at a price of $250. Judging from the photos featured here, it seems the Nike’s second LeBron Watch collection will include at least six different LeBron 16 PE colorways. These photos also suggest that these colorways will be inspired by everything from LeBron’s Nike sneakers like the Air Trainer to his “Four Horsemen” entourage.
