2016 is shaping up pretty good for the Nike LeBron 13 line up. In the first two weeks of January we’re getting two new colorways including the USA theme on January 14th and the presented Black Lion colorway that drops even sooner on January 1st. That’s very close to LeBron’s birthday.
Personally, I wonder why Nike is not doing the birthday thing anymore with LeBron James’ 31st birthday coming up on December 30th. His early Nike LeBron birthday releases were usually on point with my favorite Birthday LeBron IV’s taking the crown. I think that’s what missing in current signature shoes. There are so many styles to choose from with many lacking a deeper story or meaning. I know there are shoes that are “Written in the Stars” or represent a new “Akronite” element or that are even ready to “Race in Space”. That’s all fine, but what about the birthday thing, which is probably as easy as it gets and for me it’s much more significant that all the others.
The 807219-001 “Black Lion” LeBron 13 may not be a Birthday shoe, but it’s still one of the more interesting colorways among all known LeBron XIII make ups. Check out the new detailed photos below and follow the updated release information.From LeBron 13 Show Album
