LeBron made an appearance at the Paris Nike Summer Academy, on September 1 and 2, at Campus de la Fonderie de L’image in Bagnolet. He also showed up to an iconic corner in Paris for basketball fans when he arrived at the Pigalle basketball court.
The iconic basketball player also met Kylian Mbappé, the French prodigy, and called him « The Chosen One junior ».
Lebron James has collaborated with Harlem Fashion Row, the New York City-based fashion collective, for the HFR x LeBron 16 Take, two voices devoted to empowering others and combine them to create a shoe that honors the strength of African American women everywhere. The result is the HFR x LeBron 16, the first LeBron signature shoe to be reimagined by female designers.
“I believe that African American women are some of the strongest people on earth. I grew up around some amazingly strong women and am inspired by the strength I see around me, including my mom, wife and daughter,” said James.
LeBron James has cemented his position as one of the best basketball players to ever play the game, but that has never been enough for the Akron native. James has always strived to be more than just a basketball player. He has made an impact in the community by emphasizing education and using his powerful platform to empower those around him.
