This is your first official look at this understated and totally blacked-out kick from LeBron James.

No matter what's going on in the world, it seems as though LeBron James' Nike Basketball line is forever expanding. The brand has just dropped a brand new colourway of the LeBron 17 Low – a classic "Black/University Red".

Release date: Calling all sneaker heads! 15 March is the official release date and it's only a few days away.

Price: Approximately US$160

Where to shop: The most obvious place to shop is Nike, but we don't know when they'll be hitting the Aussie site. We do know that these kicks will be dropping into select sneaker retailers (like Sneakersnstuff) on the official release date.

In the meantime, you can shop Nike from stores like JD Sports, HYPE DC and Platypus Shoes.

This pair of LeBron 17 Low uses an advanced cushioned base, all thanks to the large heel and Air Max unit. In order to make these sneakers comfortable and supportive, Nike has added Zoom Air pucks to the forefoot.

The upper is totally blacked-out and it arrives with two different materials: a textured knit and a perforated black nubuck. The former constructs the base layer, while the latter covers the large quarter overlay and mudguard.

We are obsessing over the red branding – it's just the outlines so it's not too obvious. The flat black laces contrast the red lace loops. LeBron's signature is featured on the tongue and his L23 logo is pictured on the heel.

If you're looking to represent your favourite basketball player with a more understated shoe, then this is the pick for you.
