John Elliott x Nike LeBron Icon "Parachute Beige"

John Elliott and LeBron James‘s Nike LeBron Icon is a compelling amalgamation of high street/athletic style, and after debuting in a duo of colorways during 2018, it’s now set to release in a brand-new “Parachute Beige.” First premiered at Elliott’s FW 19 show back in February, this new makeup presents a regal color palette that’s certainly befitting of the King himself. The translucent TPE upper combines beige tones both bold and breezy, with an all-over embroidered stripe pattern providing texture. Branding is kept to a bare minimum, with nothing more than a small Swoosh on the toebox and a printed graphic on the tongue. A luxury suede then appears on the heel pull tab, tongue, and collar, short on the outside, shaggy on the inside. Down below, things are par for the course as John and LeBron throw it back to the classic Nike LeBron 8 with a familiar full-length Air Max cushioning unit and outsole. This new Icon is set to release on September 3rd for $250 USD.
