King James’s Nike drops are known for being able to switch from performance to lifestyle at the drop of a dime. So seeing his latest model tricked out with a leather build wasn’t a question of if, but more so when.

The Nike LeBron 13 Elite EXT offers up a clean leather take on an otherwise technical shoe. Tanned leather keeps things neutral and covers the entire upper, while a black flight plate juts up from beneath. A milky white outsole blends into a crisp white midsole to complete the look, making it delicate yet stunning.

There isn’t a release date on the books for this LeBron 13 Elite EXT yet, but when it does hit Nike retailers, expect it to cost a pretty penny.
