Not often do two of the top athletes in different sports come together to celebrate one another, but that’s exactly what LeBron James and Kylian Mbappé have done with their “The Chosen 2” collaboration.
Set to launch for Nike Members and as a House of Innovation Paris-exclusive on January 7th, and much more widely on January 9th, the joint-effort adds black, purple and orange accents to the Nike LeBron 18 and Nike Mercurial. More than eye-catching detailing, the palette and its execution on the forthcoming footwear nods to the parallel, championship paths between the kid from Akron, OH and kid from Bondy, Paris, France. James and Mbappé’s logos appear on both shoes, while a unique collaborative graphic appears on the heel of the made-for-basketball pair. As part of the monumental project, NIKE, Inc. has pledged to donate to IBKM (Inspired by Kylian Mbappé) and LeBron James Family Foundation.
