Since the partnership between FAMU and NIke/LeBron James was announced in 2021, the Rattlers have been outfitted in some of the most visually well-executed team-exclusive footwear in all of the college sports, with the fleet of Rattler-specific footwear including iterations of the Lebron XVIII, XVIII Low, XIX, and XX.
Earlier in the year, a retail launch of a FAMU version of the Lebron VII took place to great fanfare, with the sneakers selling out quickly in many locations. FAMU and retailer APB are teaming up to release two colorways of the Lebron XX later this summer.
One features a coconut milk upper with a snake-scaled texture with green and orange dual Swooshes on the lateral side. APB and a Lebron signature appear on each respective tongue. Additional APB and Rattler branding also appears on the insoles. These are the same sneaker that has been seen on the feet of head football coach Willie Simmons as well as the Marching 100.
The second sneaker in the set sports a peach cream upper with a reverse of the coloration of the dual Swooshes on the lateral side. FAMU and APB markings appear on the same locations as that of the “Coconut Milk” colorway. A white and orange midsole and Dunkman-branded orange rubber outsole complete the aesthetic..
Both of the FAMU x APB x Nike LeBron XX are scheduled to debut on May 9 2023 VIA APB and the Nike SNKRS app.
