LeBron James will be dropping his newest signature basketball sneakers on October. Reports reveal the Nike LeBron 13 will be hitting stores on Oct 10.
King James was first wearing the new pair at the Nike Basketball Academy in June. At that time it wasn’t sure yet whether the shoes were the official LeBron 13s. The only photos of the shoes were those of LBJ playing while wearing them.
In mid-July, the first close up photo of the LeBron 13 was leaked online.
“This first close-up look at the next LeBron sneaker reveals some of the detailing on this Petrie-designed shoe, like the mid-foot plate, low-cut heel, and the asymmetrical lacing system that has been consistent with the previous four LeBron signatures,” Sneaker News revealed.
Earlier this month, another photo was revealed that gave a better look at the sneaker.

According to Sole Collector, the LeBron 13 will drop on Oct 10, 2015 with the first colorway being a predominant berry color. With official colors Medium Berry/ Pure Platinum-Court Purple-Black, the LeBron 13 price will be at $220 per pair.
The site added that a red colorway will drop two weeks after at Oct 24.
Aside from developing and soon releasing his 13th signature shoes with Nike, LBJ is also busy traveling the world as one of the brand’s ambassadors.
The Cleveland Cavaliers superstar is scheduled to visit Manila, Philippines this week for the Nike LeBron James Rise Tour.

The tickets were made available online via a dedicated website and were given free to all fans who were early and quick enough to secure their spots online.
