Nike is collaborating with john Elliott again to produce a new colorway for the Lebron Icon QS. The mid-top silhouette is getting the Triple Black palette this time around. The new iterations comes in Nike’s Quickstrike iteration and emphasizes textures. And also detailing that’s focused on comfort.
Of course, not everybody likes black, more so Triple Black. And this is no match for the Volt variant coming soon. Still, it’s got its own charm to it. Fans might love the more understated look it provides.
The kicks feature black leather and mesh on the upper, with matching laces. Below, you’ll find a translucent green outsole, which is the only splash of color in these sleek kicks. The toe’s got the signature Swoosh branding, but you won’t find Elliott’s decals until you look at the insole. Surprise, surprise: it comes in a dark shade.
“The Icon has become part of my uniform,” says Elliott. “It’s deeply ingrained in the brand, from the way we style our lookbooks, to how we live in Los Angeles.” He adds that this Lebron Icon QS Triple Black version is versatile because the upper makes for a layered look. In layman’s terms, this means it’ll go great with almost any style of socks.
The kicks will hit Elliott’s flagship store in Los Angeles on May 22, 23, and 24 via limited units. They might sell some tie-dyed socks there, too. Then these will drop online on May 25 at Elliott’s website. Check out some more pictures below.SHOP JOHN ELLIOTT
