While LeBron James may be currently in New York City, riding the subway with his teammates ahead of a game at Madison Square Garden tonight against the surging Knicks, the concrete jungle is no birthplace for this King. James hangs his hat in Ohio, in which he is among the state’s most heralded native sons.
The upcoming Nike LeBron 15 “Pride of Ohio” couldn’t be more clear in its intentions. James is the shining star of “The Land” – a hometown hero that made good and brought the city a championship. The shoe conveys this message though a black and grey blended Flyknit upper joined by Team Red accents. “216” marks the shoe’s leather pull tab at its interior, representing Cleveland’s area code. The shoe previously released exclusively at a pop-up shop in Cleveland yet in a few days will see its first release to the wider public.
Take an official look at the “Pride of Ohio” 15s below and anticipate the release on November 18.
