Last night’s game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers was the perfect microcosm of the season. Los Angeles narrowly lost, but LeBron James looked great in another historic performance.
James scored 35 points and became the second player in the history of the NBA to reach 38,000 career points. True to form, James used the opportunity to elevate others. James wore the Nike LeBron 20 in a colorway honoring the Florida A&M University Rattlers.
The player-exclusive colorway featured a white upper, green and orange Swoosh logos, and plenty of hand-written messages to personalize the already rare shoes.
Nike and James have been getting increasingly creative with colorways for James’ 20th signature shoe. Since its launch in October 2022, we have seen exciting new colorways and familiar patterns that remember historical moments in James’ career.
Unfortunately for Rattlers fans and sneakerheads, the ‘FAMU’ colorway will most likely never release to the public. The silver lining is that several colorways of the Nike LeBron 20 are available at retail prices on Nike’s website.
