LeBron James starred in "Space Jam: A New Legacy" in 2021. The LA Lakers forward wore special shoes in the movie, and these shoes were later available for purchase.

The follow-up to Michael Jordan's legendary 1996 movie was not well received by critics nor by fans. Many believe that the movie should have never been made as it was a box office disappointment.

While the movie may not have made a lot of money or become a classic, LeBron has still benefited from it. The four-time NBA champion used "Space Jam: A New Legacy" to promote his new shoes, which looked amazing.

What shoes did LeBron James wear in 'Space Jam: A New Legacy'?

In the first "Space Jam" movie, Michael Jordan rocked his amazing Jumpman shoes. More than two decades later, LeBron James debuted his new shoes in his own Looney Tunes movie.

The basketball superstar wore several pairs of shoes in the movie, but Nike LeBron 19 "Space Jam" shoes were the most prominent.

With orange, red and blue colors, the shoes look amazing. Unlike the movie, Nike LeBron 19 sneakers received mostly positive reviews. The "Tune Squad" colorway, shown in the picture above, was used throughout the movie.

Nike eventually released more colorways for the shoe. One of the first colorways to be released was named "Sweatsuit" and it features a semi-translucent mesh upper that reveals maps of Nike World Headquarters and the Warner Bros. lot.

It's interesting that even the cartoon version of LeBron James wore these shoes in the movie. However, this version of the player was rocking his shoes in an all-red colorway, which is not the colorway that was released.

In addition to his new shoes, the four-time MVP and the other actors in the movie wore several other shoe models.


Other shoes worn throughout the movie

LeBron James had several versions of himself throughout the movie. Besides his adult and cartoon version, we also saw a young LeBron wearing Nike Air Max Uptempo 95 shoes.

Later on, the basketball superstar was spotted wearing Air Force 1 shoes, right before getting sucked into the Serververse.

When it came to his co-stars, they wore a lot of different shoe models. LeBron's sons in the movie wore Air Zoom Generation, Air Max 2, and futuristic-looking Air Flightposite shoes.

Diana Taurasi, a WNBA star, was rocking LeBron 16 shoes, while Anthony Davis was wearing Kobe AD PE.

It's interesting that every character in the movie wore Nike shoes. However, this isn't surprising at all considering James has a lifetime deal with the popular footwear company.
