Editor’s Notes: Official images of the LeBron 18 “Melon Tint” have made their way online, leading us to believe a release is right around the corner. LeBron James wore the bright colorway of his new Nike signature sneaker to secure his fourth NBA championship on Sunday night when the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Miami Heat.
The “Melon Tint” LeBron 18 is a noticeably tonal affair, as the eye-catching orange shoe comes equipped with translucent details. The lone aspect of the sneaker that is not completely covered in the melon tint is the footbed, which incorporates James’ crown logo in complementary colors.
Nike has yet to announce a release date for the LeBron 18 “Melon Tint,” but expect a launch sometime in the near future. As always, though, check back here for confirmation.
