On Twitter, many people have expressed their excitement. Fans are eager to receive this collection. With this shoe, it seems more like a hybrid of the Nike Kobe 4 and 5 era and the Kobe 9 and 10 Elite era. There has been a lot of interest in this shoe.

It appears that James is opting out of visible Max cushioning this time. Due to limited information regarding this shoe, it is believed that James’ next signature model will not be another Ambassador. Several images on Instagram show James wearing the shoe and it looks like it fits his game perfectly.

Perhaps this shoe will bring him good luck during the upcoming season. In order to become the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, he needs just 1,325 points to pass fellow Los Angeles Lakers star, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. In addition, this shoe could make history in the upcoming games, and fans are eager to see it in action as soon as possible.
