LeBron’s signature crown logo is debossed at the top of the shoe’s neoprene tongue, complemented by the line’s lion motif on the toggle of the shoe’s dual lace system. Adjacent to neoprene panels at the forefoot lies intricately woven uppers that stretch from the rear quarter all the way to the front of the silhouette. A thick red rubber overlay is placed at the rear quarter, alongside an embroidered mini-Swoosh, while a long navy backstay rounds up the uppers’ vibrant design. All of these details rest over an essential Zoom Air midsole bolstered by a geometric structure — a slightly raised heel complete with a tapering finish at the toes.
