The footwear introduces a new generation of fans to the world of Looney Tunes, with color combinations and graphic treatments that highlight different characters. For the court, a series of three LeBron 18 Low styles in adult and child sizes uses a split color design to highlight some of the most memorable matchups in franchise history, including Bugs vs. Marvin the Martian, Tweety Bird vs. New Years Eve and Road Runner vs. Wile. E. Coyote. Toddler sizes include versions of the Air Force 1, with lots of characters (don’t worry, there are adult sizes too) and a Bugs LeBron 18.
Meanwhile, Converse footwear brings thoughtfully cartoonish details to some of its more well-known lifestyle silhouettes. The Lola Bunny Pro Leather features a soft perforated leather design with a leather Star Chevron logo and an embroidered Lola graphic at the heel, outlined by pops of pink mesh lining.
A preview in the movie is the new LeBron 19. It features a dual-chamber Air Max unit in the heel and a reshaped Zoom Air unit in the forefoot for a confident ride for James. According to Nike Basketball shoe designer Jason Petrie, the new platform was inspired by the futuristic magic behind the movie.
“In designing the LeBron 19, we were definitely guided by what was happening in the movie,” says Petrie. “We wanted to give LeBron a whole new feel that was synonymous with an otherworldly, space age look.”
On clothing, Nike and LeBron’s Dri-FIT uniforms are made from soft, shiny Durasheen fabric with an engineered print and stitched twill logos featuring the two star teams – the Tune Squad and the Goon Squad. The Tune Squad varsity jacket features the same premium letter stitching across the chest, while an all-over vibrant orange print covers the interior. Completing the Converse outfit is a roster of Looney Tunes characters gathered in a collection of graphic tees, shorts, and hoodies.
