She also talks about the inspiration for the collection, being the Maasai – a Tanzanian tribe and one of Africa’s many indigenous cultures that celebrates the transformation of its youth into elders which is a true reflection of the basketball player’s two decades of playing the league and releasing shoes.

This would be the award-winning designer’s fifth time collaborating with Nike for the LeBron series and it’s already available for sale on Mimi’s website for USD 250.
