LeBron and the Cavs are coming off a disappointing weekend in which they lost to the Golden State Warriors in an NBA Finals rematch on Christmas Day that was followed by a 29 point defeat to the hands of the Trailblazers the following night. On the bright side The King released the Christmas colorway of his Nike LeBron 13 over the weekend too which is always a good thing.
A week later we’re expected to see the next colorway in the LeBron 13 line with this Black Lion offering. The Nike LeBron 13 Black Lion comes with a full black synthetic mesh upper that features iridescent detailing on the Swoosh branding on the toe as well as on the LeBron branding on the tongue. Down below we see a gum outsole round things out in what is one of the simplest but also best colorways of the LeBron 13.
At the moment we expect the Nike LeBron 13 Black Lion to release at select Nike accounts on January 1st for $200.
I love the simple look of a black upper and a gum outsole. I can overlook the iridescent upper since it’s not too noticeable. I’ll wait until these bad boys go on sale and maybe buy them down the line.
