Sneakers Release: Nike LeBron 17 “University Red/Black”  Men’s Basketball Shoe

Nov 12, 2019

This November 15, get your hands on a pair of the newest Lebron James men’s basketball shoes, the LeBron 17 in “University Red/Black”. This much-anticipated “Red Carpet” release pays homage to LeBron’s first Air Max sneaker, the “Red Carpet” LeBron 7, which hit the hardcourt a decade ago in September.

The LeBron 17 debuted earlier this year, boasting a stronger, faster, and harder performance output. The shoe’s Max Air and Zoom Air units facilitate James-like power on the court softened by superior force-absorbing cushioning. An ultra responsive foam midsole provides additional comfort during play.

External performance features include the 17’s KnitPosite upper, which replaced the collection’s traditional Battleknit upper. The new KnitPosite material takes knit and heat-molded yarns and melds them together for a lightweight, supportive fit. The material also yields a unique new texture to the LeBron 17’s upper and better color saturation.

The sneaker’s graphic and textural elements — like its metallic/jewel reverse Nike Swoosh — nod toward LeBron’s rise as a pop culture icon, while its all-red upper, laces, mid and outsoles exude red-carpet elegance. Adding another layer of luxury to these shoes are ornate embroidered lions, numbers and letters their lace overlays.

So no matter if you wear them in the game, in the club with or in the streets, Nike’s LeBron 17s in University Red and Black are sure to transform your style from simply ok to NBA star-worthy.

Available in men’s, grades school kids’ and preschool kids’ sizes, you can find a pair of these sleek King James standout squeaks in stores at your local Hibbett Sports, or online with Hibbett | City Gear starting November 15.
