To celebrate the iconic 2003 collaboration with Japanese sneaker culture staple ATMOS, King James is partnering with them as well to bring the LeBron 16 low in the classic Air Max 1 ‘Safari’ colorway.
Building off the momentum of the LeBron 15 in which we saw the James signature shoe reimagined with the designs of classic Nike sneakers with the popular #LeBronWatch program, the sportswear brand is doing the same with the LeBron 16 and low-top variation of his signature shoe.
LeBron debuted the “safari” x atmos LeBron 16 low during the All-Star game before swapping into the Kings Throne version of his kicks which took its cues from the highly-coveted and ultra rare edition of his “Watch The Throne” LeBron 9 sneakers.
The LEBRON 16 Low x ATMOS “Safari” features an upper totally reconstructed to pay homage to the classic Nike Air Max 1. It sports the same mini swoosh that was found on the Air Max 1 as well the premium material and eye-catching color blocking from the original sneaker. The exclusive kicks will drop on the SNKRS app 10:00 am EST and select retailers and will cost $175.
No word if the LEBRON 16 Low x ATMOS “Safari” will also be a part of the #LeBronWatch program but its definitely a pair of kicks that anybody who considers themselves to be a sneaker connoisseur should have in their ever-growing collections.
