The “What The” concept has become a near ubiquitous theme making appearances on silhouettes from Dunks to Air Jordans and over the past several silhouettes, originating from a 2012 sample of the 9, the Lebron signature line.
The multi-colored aesthetic features attributes from several colorways including but not limited to the”More Than an Athlete”, “I Promise”, Monstars”, “Mr. Swackhammer”,and “Future Air”. A carpet-esque tongue and an insole that reads “James Family Reunion.”
The release of the “What The” Lebron 17 is yet to be determined but it is expected to drop sometime this year at nike.com and select retail establishments. More updates will be provided as information avails itself.
