No other holiday compares to Valentine’s Day — particularly when it comes to sneakers. And while every brand is eager to participate, few are ever able to compete with Nike. And this year, in addition to their slew of pink and red-clad offerings, the brand is allowing LeBron James to play cupid by equipping him with a vibrant, thematically appropriate LeBron 19.
At first glance, the colorway resembles an Easter celebration, with its abundance of mint and pastel yellows. Pink does, however, make an appearance, albeit in a bold and desaturated shade on the midsole and heel. The remainder of the upper and tongue are white, which helps to balance out many of the aforementioned elements, as well as the purple-accented laces, multi-color Air Unit, and floral mosaic emblazoned on the tread. A more vibrant bouquet then dresses the inside tongue, enhancing the romantic atmosphere created by the arrow-impregnated basketball, heart-shaped hangtag, and appearances by cupid himself.
Check out the official images below for a closer look at the Nike LeBron 19 “Valentine’s Day.” These are expected to launch on Nike.com and select retailers later this month.
Additionally, the Yeezy Boost 350 v2 Core Red is reportedly set to return this year.
