Nike set to release LeBron James’ Hollywood-themed kicks
Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James and the fine designers at Nike are set to release the limited edition LeBron 15 “Hollywood” colorway — an ode to Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. According to several reports, the new kicks are scheduled to hit stores this weekend (March 11) with a retail price somewhere in the neighborhood of $185.
“Rust Pink” is the predominant color of James’ new shoe, with metallic gold accents and black detailing to match. The new design also features a Los Angeles-inspired graphic on the insole and 14 gold stars on the tongue, which are meant to represent LeBron’s 14 straight trips to the All-Star Game.
With this design being limited in its production, only a few Foot Locker locations and Nike retailers will have the “Hollywood” LeBron 15s in stock, according to a report from Kyle Rooney of hotnewhiphop.com.
Originally, James planned on wearing the “Hollywood” kicks during this season’s All-Star Game, but the three-time champion chose to suit up in his now-famous KITH “Long live the King” colorway instead. James’ choice of footwear seems to have paid off, as he went on to score 29 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, and one steal en route to his third All-Star MVP award.
James and the Cavs — now the third-ranked team in the Eastern Conference standings with a 37-26 overall record — will kick off a six-game road trip on Wednesday with a matchup against the Denver Nuggets inside the Pepsi Center. Tip-off is set for 10:30 p.m. EST with ESPN and FOX Sports Ohio having live broadcast coverage.
