The forthcoming return of the Nike LeBron 2 will include the return of several classic colorways. In addition to the “Maccabi” makeup that surfaced earlier this month, the “USA” iteration of LeBron James’ signature shoe will be included in the retro run.
Shown here are official product images of the “USA” LeBron 2 retro courtesy of @US_11. This style was worn by King James as a member of the United States Men’s basketball team during the 2004 Olympics. The squad famously came up short in their pursuit of a gold medal, but they did end up nabbing bronze against Lithuania.
The shoe wears a patriotic white and navy scheme on the upper, with subtle red hits on the ankle strap’s Swoosh branding and on the forefoot. The look is completed with a Zoom-cushioned midsole encapsulated within a Pebax shell.
At the time of writing, release details for this “USA” LeBron 2 retro have not yet been announced by Nike. Check back soon for official updates.
UPDATE (10/19): It’s been months since we initially learned that the “USA” LeBron 2 is returning to retail, and now we have concrete release details. The Swoosh confirms that the popular style is releasing on Oct. 25 via SNKRS for $210. Grab an official look at the shoe below.
