In a testament to the marriage of fashion and sport, Ghanaian-British fashion sensation Mimi Plange has united once more with Nike Basketball to sculpt an artistic rendition of LeBron James’ signature LeBron 20s.
This collaboration is a follow-up to Mimi's notable "Higher Learning" LeBron 18 Low from 2021.
For the LeBron 20, Plange imbues her distinctive design ethos into the athletic footwear. The palette chosen - Guava Ice, Bright Crimson, Bordeaux, Bold Berry, and White - is evocative of sunsets and spring gardens, each shade dancing with the next in an almost melodic fashion. But the colors are just the overture.
The main act of this shoe is undoubtedly its riveting floral pattern that sprawls across the entirety of the upper; Although the inspiration behind this patchy design remains unknown, it is signature Plange. Each flower seems to tell its own story, blending seamlessly into the next, creating a tapestry of tales with every step.
The shoe’s detailing doesn’t stop there. Multi-colored laces add playfulness and contrast, while the debossed bright Orange tongues, etched with LeBron’s signature, give the pair a stamp of authenticity. Then, as if the design wasn’t complete enough, the matching TPU Swooshes on the sides act as the perfect finishing touch, bringing the shoe's artistry full circle.
A wearable work of art, the Mimi Plange x Nike LeBron 20 is expected to take the stage on September 2nd on Nike.com for $250.
