At the beginning of last month, Nike revealed plans for a military-themed makeover of the LeBron 14 Low. With the weekend upon us, the Swoosh returns with an all-new addition to the LeBron James family of sneakers.

Introducing the LeBron 15, Nike serves up the “most technically advanced shoe” of the NBA superstar’s career. Coming to us courtesy of designer Jason Petrie, the LeBron 15 boasts the latest developments in Flyknit construction and the next step in the evolution of cushioning systems, the Max Air and Zoom Air blend Underfoot. Also of significance: a build that promotes “strategic stretch,” a “locked-in fit” provided by a bootie design, and the strongest in durability.

“This is my favorite shoe to date … The performance benefits and sophisticated look make this shoe a force on and off the court,” explains LeBron James, who wore a floral iteration of the sneaker to the recent KITH SPORT 2018 spring/summer showcase. “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 … It looks great, too. Since Jason and I started working on the LeBron 7, 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.”

You can take a look at the Nike LeBron 15 above and stay tuned for information regarding its release date.
