Throughout the years, the LeBron James signature shoe line with Nike has seen some pretty incredible models, colorways, and references to pop culture. LeBron’s latest nod to TV comes in the form of the Nike LeBron 16 “Martin” which is, of course, paying homage to the popular 90s sitcom of the same name, starring Martin Lawrence. James has professed his love for the show in the past, so this latest colorway only makes sense.
The sneaker completely embraces the 90s aesthetic that was present on the show’s DVD boxset for the fifth season. This shoe comes dressed in a purple battleknit upper, while yellow and red laces crisscross all the way up the tongue. Along the back of the midsole, there are some yellow triangles which help to add to the 90s aesthetic.
If you’re looking to cop these, they will be available as of April 16th for $185 USD. It appears as though they will be released at Nike Basketball stockists such as Foot Locker.
