According to Nike, the shoe was designed to “harness [LeBron's] abilities while helping with the stress he puts on his body;” the result is a bold hi-top silhouette packed with a bevy of technical materials that supports the tremendous force players let out on the court. A thin geometric tongue appears at the top of the shoe, complemented by a set of rubber overlays along the forefoot. The uppers are dominated by KnitPosite 2.0, a light and breathable knit fabric that’s been engineered with laces for a secure fit. Furthermore, vibrant graffiti-like prints are placed at the rear quarter, accompanied by a semi-translucent cover. All of these features rest over a sleek midsole equipped with a full-length Zoom Air unit, providing optimal energy return that’s fine-tuned for explosive speed.
Nike’s LeBron 18 “Multi-Color” will be available on September 24 on Nike’s website for $200 USD.
