More soccer vibes make their way to the Air Max 1.
In April of 2011, LeBron James along with his business partner and long-time friend Maverick Carter, purchased 2% of Liverpool FC. After becoming a part owner of Fenway Sports Group in March of this year, LeBron continues to own a part of one of the most popular soccer franchises of all-time. With an estimated value of $4.1 billion, its no surprise to see LeBron honor the football club with a special edition sneaker.
The LeBron James x Nike Air Max 1 "Liverpool FC" comes in a clean white, black, varsity red, gorge green, and geode teal colorway. Inspired by the teams official colors, the sneaker features OG-like detailing, with leather overlays paired to mesh underlays. Green and black cover the leather parts, while white is featured on the mesh. Red detailing can be seen via the lining and Max Air unit in the heel. Custom printed insoles with LFB branding on the right and LeBron on the left, are finished off by custom packaging.
The LeBron James x Nike Air Max 1 Liverpool FC is set to release late 2022/early 2023. It will drop at Nike, via the SNKRS app, and at select retailers worldwide, both online and in-store. Coming in men's sizing, retail is set at $160. Keep it locked to our Twitter and the Mobile App for all your updates on future sneaker releases.
