Los Angeles was the place to be this weekend if you’re into sneakers. Not only did Jordan Brand open up their LA store this weekend and had a major restock on a bunch of releases, Foot Locker also released the limited edition Nike LeBron 16 King Court Purple to celebrate LeBron James’s arrival to the city of angels. The Nike LeBron 16 King Court Purple was released via their app called, “The Hunt,” which was exclusive to those located in LA. In addition to being available through the app, the shoes were also up for grabs at the Foot Locker pop up right across the Staples Center at LA Live.
The Nike LeBron 16 King Court Purple ($185) comes dressed in a Purple Battleknit upper paired up with the animal print on the heel. What you end up getting is a LeBron 16 with both a Lakers and King inspiration. As expected, the shoe sold out very fast. Were you in LA this weekend? If so, did you manage to scoop up a pair? Stay tuned for a potential wider release date.
