After years of rumors, speculations, and comparisons between LeBron James and Michael Jordan, Space Jam: A New Legacy will finally hit theaters this summer. Like the original movie from 1996, the focus for sneaker enthusiasts will be on the sneakers worn from the film and released alongside it. For better or worse, the expectations for the Space Jam sneaker releases are incredibly high. That's because one of Michael Jordan's greatest sneakers of all time, the Air Jordan 11 "Space Jam," was the shining star of the original movie for sneakerheads.
While we won't get a Jordan 11 this time around (at least for now), we finally have a look at all of the sneakers and apparel set to release in the coming weeks. From Nike, a number of kids releases will be paired with three colorways of the Nike LeBron 18 Low inspired by the epic rivalries from the film, as well as two colorways of the upcoming Nike LeBron 19 will release in July. Nike-owned Converse will also release a handful of sneakers and apparel, including a Converse Pro Leather and multiple Chuck Taylor All-Stars with Tune Squad graphics.
Space Jam: A New Legacy is set to release in theaters and on HBO Max on July 16th.
