If LeBron James ever went to college, his hometown Ohio State Buckeyes would have been at the top of his list. LBJ is a huge Ohio State fan and each year Nike Basketball releases a Buckeyes-inspired colorway of his signature shoe line. Enter the new Air Max LeBron X Low “University Red” dropping this Saturday, June 15th. The Air Max LeBron X Low gives sneaker enthusiasts an alternative to the high silhouette of #6’s popular 10th signature shoe. We’ve seen a number of vibrant coloways release on the Low X since its introduction, including the “sports turquoise” and “bright citrus,” but now the “University Red” takes centerstage this weekend. Sitting atop a Zoom Air Max unit is a university red Hyperfuse constructed upper. Total crimson makes its mark on the Swoosh design and the Flywire cabling. Finally, pure platinum makes up the tongue, inner lining, and the speckled midsole.
The Nike LeBron X Low “University Red” will be available Saturday, June 15th at House of Hoops by Foot Locker, Foot Locker and Footlocker.com (starting at 8:00 a.m. EST) for $165. Check out more photos below and let us know what you think of the colorway in the comments.
