They sport a white leather and varsity crimson mesh upper with navy bordered Swooshes on the lateral side. The Lebron name on the tongue and chrome section on the rear heel are elements of the Hummer H2 insprired design. Varsity crimson also makes an appearance at the inner, where the “11-5-2003” , the date of LeBron’s first home game, is stitched in gold.
Underneath the upper resides a varsity crimson midsole and a white and midnight navy rubber outsole.
