Football. Soccer. Easily the biggest sport in the world, with an estimated 3.5 billion fans around the world, football has never felt bigger.
As its roots grow deeper in the States, the spectacle of the sport shines even brighter, seeing to it that collaborations like Nike and Liverpool FC x LeBron James come to light.
When LeBron James, one of the biggest athletes in the world, stepped up to the plate alongside Drake as one of Liverpool FC's ambassadors after Nike snatched the partnership from New Balance, rumors began to swirl concerning collaborative merchandise between the three.
Despite just how loud the rumor mill became, there was nothing to show for it except LeBron and Drake's continued financial investment in the sport – Michael B. Jordan, too. At least, in the interim, we got some serious bangers from adidas.
Well, the day has finally come; Nike x Liverpool FC x LeBron James kits and lifestyle apparel is available to shop online.
Blending basketball and football, the collection, like a fantasy draft, shows us what would happen if The Lakers or Miami Heat bumped heads with Liverpool.
Both basketball and football jerseys feature within the collection, allowing fans of both sports to unite. For the baller's uniforms, Liverpool's iconic "You Will Never Walk Alone" motto takes the form of a red monogram, serving as a canvas to the club's and LeBron James' logos.
The football top, however, takes a base of black with a red pinstripe. Following the form of the team's traditional gear, the King James emblem replaces sponsor logos.
Additional pieces include a co-branded long-sleeve tee, hooded sweatshirt, and shorts.
Several pieces in the collection have already sold out at pace, but there's still plenty more on offer. You might want to get there before Kim Kardashian, Saint West, or Drake do, though.
