LeBron James latest sneaker - the LeBron 15 - is out, with the Cavs star himself, LeBron James, modeling on a runway.

CLEVELAND, Ohio - LeBron James' latest shoe, which debuted Thursday night, blends style and technology.

Nike basketball shoe designer Jason Petrie is behind the shoe. Long gone are the days of simple high-top Chuck Taylors. Here's the company's description:

"The shoe's key innovations include a next-generation Flyknit construction that provides strategic stretch, a locked-in fit and durability. Underfoot is a fully articulated cushioning system that combines Max Air and Zoom Air units, while a full-bootie construction offers a secure, one-to-one fit."

James modeled the shoe for a Kith Sport runway show during New York Fashion Week. GQ magazine says there will be four variations: Gray, tan, one with floral embroidery and one emblazoned with 'SVSM' - referencing his alma mater, St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron.

"The number-one thing people should know about the LEBRON 15 is that this new Nike Flyknit is something that's never been done in a performance shoe," James said in a release through Nike. "It looks great, too. Since Jason and I started working on the LEBRON VII, we have always talked about how we not only want to have the top, top, top notch in performance, we want style, as well."

Details - price and availability date - were not released.
