Newly leaked imagery of the Faze Clan x Nike LeBron 20 NXXT was shared by @Kicksdong on Instagram. This collab makes sense considering that James’ oldest son, Bronny, is a member of Faze Clan after signing with the esports organization in 2020. The style dons a simple black and red color scheme that’s likely inspired by the colors of the Faze Clan logo, which appears on the tongue. The Swoosh branding by the heel counter features an iridescent detail while the rest of the upper features a web-like pattern. Breaking up the look is a white Zoom Air-cushioned midsole and a red outsole.
At the time of writing, release details for this Faze Clan x Nike LeBron 20 NXXT have yet to be announced. We’ll keep you updated if anything changes.
UPDATE (01/27): After months have passed since images of the unreleased Faze Clan x Nike LeBron NXXT Gen sneaker surfaced on Instagram, we’re now learning more about the project. This is the first collaborative product from Nike and FaZe Clan and was designed in with both Nike and Faze’s creative team, along with renowned stylist Toreno Winn.
“Our hope is that our first collaboration with Nike solidifies gamers belonging in the same realm of professional athletes,” JVY, FaZe Clan’s creative director, said. “The design of this shoe is inspired by the analogy that just like motherboards buried underneath the shell of technology, all great talent comes from beneath, and we all use different internal functions to power us as athletes and gamers.”
