Naturally, just like its involvement in the first Space Jam film, Nike has big plans around A New Legacy’s release. The Swoosh has now revealed the extensive array of sneakers and apparel it’ll be releasing to mark the moment.
As the collection is aimed both for nostalgic adults and starry-eyed kiddos, the shoes and apparel range from retro-inspired cuts to modern-day performance wear. LeBron’s own signature shoes feature prominently, with a special highlight being a limited-edition colorway of his soon-to-be-released LeBron 19 shoe. The futuristic shoe boasts a double-chambered Air Max unit in the heel and a newly shaped Zoom Air forefoot unit for a reliable underfoot ride to transform you into a beast on the court – like James.
There are also three new takes on the LeBron 18 low, which feature split color designs to call out some of the most memorable face-offs in the franchise’s history. These technical footwear options pair well with Nike’s Looney Tunes and Goon Squad jerseys.
However, if you’re on more of a Converse vibe, don’t worry, Nike’s daughter brand came out in full force. Channeling the ’90s vibes of the first film, the Converse footwear brings in attentively cartoonish detailing to some of its best-known silhouettes. Two high-top Chuck Taylors get bold Tune Squad graphics, and the Low Pro Leather gets the Lola Bunny treatment. Meanwhile, a darker Converse training kit sees Space Jam favorites adorn hoodies, tees, and backpacks.
It goes without saying that the entire collection will be made for sizes all the way through from toddlers to adults. Nike’s Space Jam 2 merch will release throughout July to coincide with the film itself, which is due to drop on July 16. You can keep tabs on the collection, and shop it
