Nike Officially Unveils LeBron XXI Release Details

Marco Negrete

UPDATE September 14: Nike has shared official details of the LeBron XXI. Built with the next generation in mind, LeBron’s 8-year-old daughter Zhuri was the muse for this design. The low-cut silhouette evolves the XX’s design and is modeled after the properties of an oyster shell. Tech-wise,  the XXI features a Zoom Turbo unit in the forefoot, a bottom-loaded, 13-millimeter Zoom unit in the heel; and a full-length Cushlon 2.0 foam carrier.

The LeBron XXI, available in full family sizing, releases globally beginning September 28.

LeBron is in rare air regarding the longevity of his signature sneaker. In fact, he’s the only player to pass the 20 mark while still active, and now we get a look at his 21st signature sneaker with Nike. LeBron took to Instagram to tease the shoe before giving us a more detailed look. Design-wise, the 21 looks like a natural evolution of the 20, which is a good sign for fans. The 20 was a bit of a revival for the King’s signature line, switching from the typically high and padded designs to a low-top.

The obvious comparison is to Nike Kobes, which helped popularize low-top performance models. Official tech specs have not been shared but expect more as the season approaches.


Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
