KITH and Nike are celebrating LeBron James's birthday (December 30) by releasing their collaborative LeBron XV "Long Live the King" collection, which continues the story told in KITH's recently released mini-documentary by highlighting LeBron both on and off the court. Ronnie Fieg worked with Nike to develop two new variations of the LeBron XV – one designed for performance and one for lifestyle.

The Lifestyle XV revamps the silhouette's upper while maintaining the original midsole tooling, and opts for a more refined textured Flyknit upper as opposed to the more pronounced Battleknit. The most dynamic design element of Lifestyle XV is the strap system. Branded straps replace a lacing system and come in both full and half-length options. Each Lifestyle XV is accompanied by two full straps and one half strap. This sneaker can also be devoid of straps, thus creating three different ways to be worn.

The Performance XV features a luxury approach to the on-court sneaker, meaning all core performance characteristics are maintained to fit the needs of LeBron James (who wore this pair on Christmas Day). The key addition to this model is a rose gold Riri zipper that runs up the center of the upper from the toe to the collar. This zipper conceals a leather panel that displays asymmetric branding, with "Long Live the King" on the right shoe and "Kith x Nike LeBron XV" on the left.

Pricing:

The Lifestyle XV is offered in two colorways, Stained Glass and Concrete, and will retail for $230 USD.

The Performance XV receives a Rose Gold colorway, as the Battle-Knit upper is draped in a faint rose tone, and will retail for $200 USD.

Release info:

The KITH x Nike LeBron XV "Long Live the King" collection releases this Saturday, December 30, at KITH shops and KITH.com.*

The online release will be at midnight, 12 a.m. EST.

*No other retailers will carry this collection as it will remain exclusive to KITH’s shops.
