See The Design Process Of The HFR x LeBron 16

For LeBron’s first ever female sneaker, Nike worked with HFR, a social company that provides a voice for multicultural designers, to help bring the sneaker together.
HFR founder Brandice Daniel tapped Kimberly Gordon, Felisha Noel and Undra Celeste Duncan to join forces with Meline Khatachourian, Nike‘s global basketball footwear designer.

Featuring some super interesting design features, from a removable leather collar to a personal favourite, the moulded lion at the heel that doubles up as a lacing feature, LeBron’s first female sneaker is both versatile and unique.

In the video below you can see some of the process behind the design, to see a quick interview with HFR & Meline, head here.
