NIKE LEBRON 15 ‘NEW HEIGHTS’ – DEC. 7 AT 10 AM ET

12.7 Release Report LBJ

How does a four-time MVP, three-time world champ, and thirteen-time All-Star take his game to ‘New Heights’? Well, he starts by adding one more of each to his trophy case, which at this point is probably more of a room than a case. LBJ has already accomplished many feats that are hard to believe, and he’s more ready than ever to blow your mind as 2018 approaches. These LeBron 15s stand out thanks to their dark atomic teal, ale brown, and team red colors and are the perfect shoes to rock as The King pursues greatness yet again. Men’s $184.99. Boys’ $159.99.

UNDER ARMOUR CURRY 4 ‘MORE BUCKETS’ – DEC. 8 AT 10 AM ET

12.7 Release Report Curry

Few players stand out as much on the court as Stephen Curry does. But he is equally exceptional off the court as well. The latest colorway of his signature shoes is perfect for both parts of his life. The main color here is grey, with Overcast Grey and Graphic tones along the upper and midsole. They give way to a solid white rubber outsole and feature iridescent shades on the midfoot shank and collar. It creates a smooth, sleek look that is dangerous on the court and stylish off it. Men’s $129.99. Boys’ $109.99.
