LeBron James’ Latest Nike Sneaker Was Designed Exclusively By Women

On Friday, LeBron James will release his 16th sneaker with Nike, but this one is a little different. For the second time, James’ sneaker was designed exclusively by women. After the Los Angeles Laker mentioned in a speech how inspired he was by Black women, Nike reached out to Brandice Daniel, the founder of Harlem’s Fashion Row, an organization that aims to elevate multicultural designers. Daniel presented three Black female designers to the athletic brand — Kimberly Goldson, Undra Duncan, and Fe Noel — who worked with one of Nike global basketball footwear designers, Meline Khachatourian, to create the shoe.
