"This is my favorite shoe to date."
Nike has just officially unveiled LeBron James' 15th signature sneaker, the Nike LeBron 15. LeBron gave fans a glimpse of the LeBron 15 last night during the KITH fashion show but now we have our best look yet as well as specific details about the shoes he'll be lacing up in the upcoming NBA season.
According to Nike, the LeBron 15, designed by Jason Petrie, is the most technically advanced shoe of LeBron's career featuring an evolved Flyknit construction and an advanced cushioning system. LeBron has dubbed the Nike LeBron 15 his greatest sneaker yet.
“This is my favorite shoe to date,” says James. “The performance benefits and sophisticated look make this shoe a force on and off the court.”
“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,” notes James. “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. We have a desire to create shoes that makes all people feel good when they put it on.”
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.
Nike will be revealing more information and release details about the LeBron 15 in the coming weeks, but some of those particulars have already leaked.
According to @SoleHeatOnFeet, the Nike LeBron 15 will be making its retail debut in a little over one month from now in four different colorways, including "Black/Black-Team Red-Metallic Gold" and "University Red/Black-Black."
