Uppers are made of a thin-yet-sturdy synthetic material that’s split between white on the lateral side and black on the medial side. A cachaphony of mismatching colored accents then collide on each foot in tribute to some familiar colorways — standouts include the Air Max 95 “Grape” on the left shoe’s tongue and Air Max 95 “Neon” on the right shoe’s lateral quarter — while each tongue’s familiar badge is altered to read “LeBron.”
Insoles supply a “LBJ” graphic in place of a familiar Air hit, while cushioning is handled by a hybrid Air/React midsole. The former technology appears in bulbous fashion below the heel’s large support clip, while the latter is tucked into a more trim forefoot. Outsoles fuse multiple traction patterns to complete the shoe’s blend of looks and tech.
At the time of writing, an official release date for the Nike LeBron 18 Low “Greedy” has yet to be revealed. However, it’ll likely hit retailers later this summer and be priced at $160 USD.
