‘Griffey’ Nike LeBron Watch 15 Was Almost Released Last Night

If you were watching last night’s game and saw LeBron James wearing one of his Cavs PEs thinking you don’t need to hit refresh on Nike SNKRS you’d be surprised because the countdown was in play… for a brief moment.

There was sort of a glitch on and first the official catalog images have surfaced followed by the Nike Draw. If you’re following me on Instagram you saw the story unfold. @nikestore tweeted that the actual launch will happen at a later date. We’ll all be ready now.

Consider this a confirmation the final LeBron Watch being in fact inspired by Ken Griffey Jr. and his ‘Air Max Griffey 1’.

In the meantime we’ve got new detailed images courtesy of @weocia.

Preview of the 5th and Final(?) Nike LeBron Watch 15 ‘Swingman’

Last night, LeBron James debuted the ‘South Beach’ LeBron 15 as a part of the LeBron Watch, but he decided to keep that pair to himself.
This means that we still get at least one more version at retail and now all the attention turn towards the next installment inspired by the signature series for baseball legend Ken Griffey Jr.

Nike did already release the ‘Swingman’ Nike LeBron 9 back in 2012. This new iteration sports the LeBron 15 silhouette with the “Dunkman/Swingman” logo on the heel, a black/teal Battleknit upper, and a big white Swoosh with the Swingman’s trademark toebox placement.

Per usual a release date isn’t known upfront, but once LeBron James wears these on court expect an Instagram Stories update just before the tip-off followed by a draw on the Nike SNKRS app. April 3rd is one of the possible dates.
