Continuing the artist series efforts for LeBron James’ latest signature sneakers, we get a look into the NYC version, created by local artist Tomokazu Matsuyama. Focusing heavily on a reincarnation theme, Matsuyama encrusted 700 Swarovski crystals into a pair of the kicks, following a Japanese Bubbhist-inspired design utilizing the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4.
Although a bit more of a Summer style sneaker, A Bathing Ape drops three different colorways in their Five Sta runners for Fall/Winter. Following a classic running shoe aesthetic, the kicks boast suede/leather combo uppers with subtle color tones.
