‘Starting 5’ aka ‘1 Thru 5’ aka ‘What the’ LEBRON 16 – Release Date »
Nike has mixed things up with the addition of the “What The” at the very beginning of the LeBron 16 line up. There are many takes on what the shoe actually means. The first version says it’s called “1 Thru 5,” a play on James’ ability to guard all five positions. Another story claims it’s a mash-up of the first five colorways of the Nike LeBron 16… and this time we’ll be guessing them in reverse order.
The initial leaks provided an earlier stateside release date scheduled for this Friday (9/15). Footlocker Europe has just confirmed their official date set to 9/22. Generally it’s better to be on the lookout for the next couple days. One thing is certain… there’s won’t be many pairs to go around.
