Nike LeBron 17 Release Date

After a handful of leaks and teasers from King James himself, Nike has officially unveiled LeBron James’ 17th signature sneaker.

“The silhouette was a way to reset the mark for LeBron, and futuristically explore how we could help his game with the best that Nike offers,” designer Jason Petrie says of the sneaker’s new components which include a revamped knit upper and Air bag setup. Picking up where the Battleknit 2.0 in the LeBron 16 left off, the LeBron 17 is constructed with what the brand has dubbed Knitposite. By blending traditional Flyknit with heat-molded yarns, Knitposite adds both support and design flair by allowing for new color patterns.

Underfoot, Nike went back to a tried and true LeBron favorite with heel Max Air. In fact, the LeBron 17 features the largest-volume Max Air unit ever used in a LeBron sneaker. At the forefoot, two Zoom Air units are used to add responsiveness. “The lateral and medial pods under the forefoot give him that response and comfort in conjunction with the Max Air bag. The way LeBron sees it, he wants to feel confident from the ground up. He doesn’t need help jumping. He wants to feel secure on the way down,” Petrie said.

Fans who have been eager to try out the LeBron 17 won’t have to wait much longer, as the sneaker will officially drop on Sept. 27 for a retail price of $200. Those who were quick with their fingers also had a chance to cop the white-based “Future Air” colorway today on SNKRS, but the pair has already sold out.
