The LeBron Series Introduced Some of the Most Innovative Technologies
It is fitting that a physical specimen unlike anyone prior has a sneaker line that also breaks the mold. LeBron’s very first signature sneaker, the Nike Air Zoom Generation, incorporated a newly developed foot-forming soft foam to deliver on the promise made to him by designer Aaron Cooper that the shoe will be “the most comfortable shoe” he has ever worn. The Zoom LeBron VII introduced the first basketball-specific Max Air 360 Unit to add enhanced cushioning to the lightest offering in the line at the time. The LeBron 9 was the first sneaker to infuse Flywire technology into Hyperfuse construction. The latest model, the LeBron X, is the first basketball sneaker to feature Nike+ technology and to have visible full length Zoom Max cushioning. With so much technology debuted on LeBron sneakers, one can only wonder what else is to come.
