LeBron James' basketball prowess is mirrored in his business acumen, notably his stake in one of England's most storied football clubs, Liverpool FC. This unique intersection of basketball royalty and football heritage has seen the British team collaborate on various LeBron’s silhouettes. For the latest venture between the two, the LeBron NXXT Gen AMPD is the canvas.
The Liverpool FC x Nike LeBron NXXT Gen AMPD blends performance technology with soccer-inspired aesthetics. The light orewood brown upper, adorned with additional paneling for enhanced durability and support, sits atop an engineered mesh base in a harmonious tonal design. Accents of black and teal, reminiscent of Liverpool FC's away kits from 2008 and one of the clubs' rumored colors for this year, highlight the Nike Swoosh and stitching details, adding a pop of color.
Metallic Gold eyestays and the Liverpool FC crest on the tongue nod to the club's prestigious history, while "LFC" embroidered on the heel tab solidifies the collaboration. Inside, the sneaker features a custom insole branded with Liverpool graphics, ensuring every step resonates with the club's spirit. The design is completed with a white midsole accented by black and a semi-translucent teal outsole, echoing the sneaker's overall theme.
The Liverpool FC x Nike LeBron NXXT Gen AMPD will release on March 7, 2024, through Nike and select retailers online and in-store. Available in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $170. Download the Sole Retriever mobile app for the latest updates on this release, raffles, and more.
