When asked to create a new lifestyle shoe inspired by LeBron James, Elliott starting thinking about how LeBron walks onto the court. As one of the greatest basketball players of all time, all eyes are on him – so Elliott designed a sneaker that would make LeBron feel his best as he steps onto the court. Melding court style with comfort, the Nike LeBron x John Elliott Icon brings in the LeBron 8's full-length Air tooling, updating it with a unique translucent upper and court-inspired embroidery.
During the design phase, Elliot started his research by re-watching the 7th game of the 2016 NBA finals, focusing on James’ historic chase-down block. Noting LeBron’s superman talent, the designer decided to use a spillway – the structure that controls and forcefully disperses water from a dam – as the springboard for the Nike LeBron x John Elliott Icon design. Speaking about his inspiration, Elliott said: “there are literally layers of transparency that take place down a contained, concrete area, which really speaks to my aesthetic".
The Icon forms part of an ongoing collaborative partnership between James, Elliott and Nike. Can’t find the silhouette you’re looking for?
