Now that LeBron James is officially a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, Nike will be releasing plenty of purple and gold colorways of his signature line, including the upcoming LeBron 16. Nike will likely officially introduce LeBron's 16th signature sneaker in September, but early sample images have already surfaced, giving us an idea of what to expect. 

The first images of the LeBron 16 reveal the familiar, visible Zoom/Max Airbag that was utilized on the LeBron 15 as well as a Flyknit construction on the upper. The kicks also feature LeBron's lion logo on the heel and his LJ crown logo on the tongue, as well as a Nike swoosh towards the heel, reminiscent of the Nike LeBron 3.

Nike traditionally reveals LeBron's newest signature sneaker in early September, which leads us to believe they'll follow the same route with the LeBron 16. While we await official images, details and specifics of the sneaker, check out the sample pics in the posts embedded below.
