The elite-level youth basketball camp held in an old airport hangar in Southern California was host to many of the nation’s top high school players and a select group of college athletes, and the luck attendees all left with a very special pair of the LeBron 14, KD 10, or PG1 in a PE colorway designed just for the Academy.To go along with the airport hangar and bootcamp-style theme of the event, each shoe features a military-inspired look with added details and logos for the Nike Basketball Academy. Unfortunately, it looks like all three shoes will remain exclusive to the players at the event. However, if any retail release is announced, Sneaker News will be the first to let you know.
Nike Basketball has been releasing a number of grade school exclusive LeBron 14 colorways throughout summer. After the debut of three WWE-inspired LeBron 14 options, the Swoosh will follow that up with a vibrant pair inspired by the first time LeBron saw the ocean on an AAU basketball trip with his childhood team growing up.The Nike LeBron 14 Cocoa Beach tells the story of the Florida town where a young LeBron first saw the ocean with teammates from Akron thanks to a bright Blue Lagoon and Squadron Blue upper paired with Tour Yellow and Bright Crimson accents on the Swoosh branding and heel tab.
‘Cocoa Beach’ callouts hit the side panel stripe while a unique insole shows a map of the small beach town. You can grab your pair this Saturday, August 12th for $140 USD.
