NBA season is starting, so why not celebrate with a new style of LeBron 17s?

Nike is known for always creating new styles and colourways from its iconic silhouettes. The LeBron 17s first dropped last month in September, and while people are still loving them, there's something new to obsess over. That's right, the team behind Nike are adding a new colour to the collection and we could not be more excited! To celebrate the arrival of the NBA, you need a great pair of kicks – and this may just be the one for you.

What is it: LeBron 17 in "University Red"

Release date: 15 November. This is a US date, but we're expecting the sneaker styles to be available for Australians sometime soon after that.

Price: Approximately $300

Where to shop: Nike. Hopefully, you'll be able to buy these kicks from stockists like JD Sports and Platypus Shoes but there's no guarantee.

The signature LeBron 17 style has been dressed up in a classic university red shade. We love that the tone is used throughout, from top to bottom – it really makes a statement. While the Knitposite upper includes faded white tones, this just really helps give the sneaker some dimension. In regards to shape, it's generally the same but we do notice more texture included compared to the first drop.

The important question is: will it be available for all sizes? You bet it will! That's right, you can shop men's or kids' sizes, so the whole family can rock a great pair of kicks.
