There’s been some speculation over the new design of Lebron Jame’s signature shoe since he leaked a blurry Instagram live photo back in June, but since then it’s been quiet… Until the past couple of weeks.

First, we got a flood of “first look” replica/fakes that hit the market via Chinese online shoe stores. And these honestly look like a Lebron 15 + Lebron 16 had a threesome with an Air Max 270. It’s honestly not a bad looking fake, but I personally don’t need a another 270 hybrid basketball shoe. I don’t think the ride will be even on court and 270 air has been marketed as a casual cushioning system, not built for athletes.

Okay, fast forward to the last few days and we have some very nice looking pictures from Instagram via @street8oy. This guy’s leaks have been pretty legit and I personally think this is going to be more in line with the retail version of the shoe.

I like it, but I like anything Lebron does (Pause), even the Lebron 13. Personally, I’m going hold off on copping a pair of these till the official reviews are in and the resellers’ price drops. And I won’t go crazy again and cop 5 pairs of these like I did the Lebron 16, which happens to be my second favorite Lebron shoe to date.

What do you think of the Lebron 17 leaks?
