LeBron plays less in the paint and more at the point, so it makes sense that he wants to feel a little quicker. His 19th signature shoe gives you the feeling of containment but with a lower, lighter design that's ideal for fast, strong players like LeBron who stretch the court.
Soften Your Landing
A Max Air unit under the heel provides cushioning to help big, strong fast players like LeBron land gently on the ground. It’s paired with full-length Nike React technology for a smooth, responsiveness ride. It’s an ultra-responsive underfoot system with recovery on-demand to help decrease ground contact time when landing and taking back off.
A light but tough upper helps keep your ankle locked in. The woven material in the upper is lightweight and durable, while the overlays provide structure and support. Mesh up top offers breathability but still sports the containment needed to keep playing and manage the micro-movements of the ankle.
The external molded heel clip provides lightweight support to help lock in the back of your foot. It helps give you a sense of security when you're focused during the game.
