Just days away from the All-Star Break in Cleveland, LeBron James has shed light on his most recent 1-of-1 PE from Nike. After all, the King has access to footwear rivaled by none, but these are have some extra special sauce that connects him to a fellow LA icon. From afar, these may appear like a non-descript pair of all-white Air Force 1 Mids. However, there are levels to this concept as it pools in multiple points of Los Angeles influence as well as themes of chess to conjure up a “Kings Of LA” theme befitting the four-time champ and a second individual worthy of that mantle. Two King chess pieces are embroidered on the heel, while the mid-panel features a map of LA color-blocked to mimic a chessboard. On the inner sides of the ankle straps are two bold statements that read “Chess Not Checkers” and “Love Live The King”. Finally, the tongue reads the following lyrics: “Try to be the king, but the Ace is back!” LeBron James was gifted these 1-of-1 shoes before Super Bowl LVI, and it’s our understanding that an alternate black pair of Air Force 1 Mids with the same details were created just for none other than Dr. Dre. The iconic rapper/producer/mogul intended to wear his black version of the Air Force 1 Mid “Kings Of LA” during his performance, but instead opted for a standard pair of all-black Air Force 1 Highs. Again, these Air Force 1 Mids were made exclusively for LeBron James and Dr. Dre and will not see a commercial release. We will, however, show you exclusive images of LeBron’s pair (as well as photos caught by the NBA), with an exclusive look at Dr. Dre’s pair coming soon.
