Following in the footsteps of the Nike LeBron 15 and 16 before it, a ¾ cut remains with what looks like improvements on a BattleKnit upper and full-length, visible Zoom Max tooling. While all the main ingredients appear in tact from previous pairs, the overall onset looks to be much more aggressive.
A jagged collar speaks to such while the upper sports a shattered or exploded pattern.
Wasting no time, King James just popped up at Nike Campus in Portland in his new kicks.
Following numerous leaks, Nike has shared official images and a September 27th launch date.
Designed by Jason Petrie, the latest LeBron takes elements of Battleknit and Flyknit for Knitposite – a heat molded fusion of the two techs for a fit that’s both soft and strong.
That’s not the only place they double down on tech. The heel features a high volume Air Max unit while the forefoot has articulated Zoom Air.
Peep the “Ashes,” “Future Air” and “Lakers” colorways below.
