No holiday is quite like Valentine’s Day — especially when it come to sneakers. And while every brand is quick to participate, few ever rival Nike. And this year, alongside their drove of pink and red clad offerings, the brand is letting LeBron James play cupid, arming him with a colorful, thematically appropriate LeBron 19.
At a glance, the colorway could easily be mistaken for an Easter celebration, as it’s rife with hits of mint and pastel yellows. Pink does, however, come into play, though only atop the midsole and heel in a bold and desaturated shade, respectively. White makes up the rest of the upper and tongue, balancing out many of the aforementioned as well as the purple-accented laces, multi-color Air Unit, and the floral mosaic emblazoned onto the tread. A bouquet of fuller color, then, dresses the inside tongue, aiding the romantic air in tandem with the arrow-impaled basketball, heart-shaped hangtag, and appearances from cupid himself.
