To coincide with the release of the Jordan Melo M10, is the Jordan Melo 1.5 dropping in the same “Volt” colorway.

Inspired by animal print and cold color, the highly-anticipated Nike KD VI “Liger” is announced. The sneaker blends leopard and tiger prints with bright electric green and atomic orange for a shock of energy on the court.

There have been a slew of recent LeBron releases but we’ve got one more for you and it’s super sleek. The Nike LeBron 11 “Diffused Jade” will drop on Saturday and is named after the accent color which accounts for the majority of the color pop on the pair. Cloaked in a mostly black upper this release has diffused jade accents on Nike and LeBron branding on the toe, tongue, and inside of the sneaker, as well as the shoe’s inner lining. A frosty diffused jade outsole also gives the shoe some pop and character. Light crimson is also prominent on the shoe’s black background taking care of the lace loops, tongue accenting, and woven in on the laces.
The Nike LeBron 11 “Diffused Jade” drops on Saturday, February 22 at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker, and online at Footlocker.com (starting at 8:00 a.m. EST) for $ 200.
