Nike LeBron 19

Nike LeBron 19 Review

The Nike LeBron 19 has been one of the, if not the most, anticipated sneaker of 2021. We all know that these were revealed in Space Jam: A New Legacy (check our thoughts here) and we’re glad we have a pair in hand now. These can definitely be jarring and look overwhelming at first, but we have high hopes in
Nike LeBron Witness 6

Nike LeBron Witness 6 Review

The Nike LeBron Witness 6 is LeBron James’ budget model that doesn’t even feel all that budgety, in fact it is one of the best budget models of 2021. Back then we may have gotten decent polyurethane and an encapsulated Air Sole unit. More than 20 years later, we have a cheaper shoe that has a near-full-length Air Sole unit
Space Jam A New Legacy

Our Thoughts on Space Jam: A New Legacy

Space Jam: A New Legacy is out in theatres and on HBO Max right now and Chris, with help from the true audience of the movie, gives his thoughts. Nostalgia will always play a role into these kinds of things, especially with figures such as Michael Jordan and LeBron James involved. Let’s see where that leads us in the discussion.
Nike LeBron 8 South Beach 2021

Nike LeBron 8 South Beach 2021 Review

The Nike LeBron 8 South Beach is back for the first time since its debut in 2010. And we all know which moment in basketball history we associate this with: The Decision. It wasn’t a good look for LeBron James at the time but these shoes definitely were a good look on foot. We’re just happy that these came back

Nike LeBron 18 Low Performance Review

The Nike LeBron 18 Low comes after a good run by the Nike LeBron 18, its higher cut brother that’s actually the same collar height. The LeBron 18 was a good shoe with some obvious weaknesses that made it a bit too unstable for some. This time around, LeBron’s Nike design team made just the right tweaks to upgrade the original.
Nike Lebron 8 Hardwood Classic

Nike LeBron 8 Hardwood Classic Review

The Nike LeBron 8 Hardwood Classic is every LeBron watcher’s dream. This originally released as a PE about 10 years ago and, for the first time ever, they’re releasing to the public. Though they do have the Knicks colors in them, they call out to the old color scheme of the Cleveland Cavaliers. So, I guess it’s safe to say

Nike LeBron 19 Shoes

Even at first glance it is easy to see that the LeBron 19 has a lot of potential of being an on-court beast. It is chick full of perfermance features fit for a King. The Shoe features both Air Max and a Zoom Air, in the heel and fore foot respectively, that sit within a plush cushlon carrier. The heel Air Max unit and the forefoot Zoom Air are communicated by several chambers that allow air to flow from one to the other as you step.  This set up is reminiscent of another outstanding Nike Signature line, that of Olando Magic’s legend Penny Hardaway.  

The shoes upper is 100% performance driven as well and features flywire on the toe box, an upgraded tongue from the LeBron and re-enforced overlays for high wear areas. Check out the video for the full breakdown. 

Nike LeBron 18 Shoes

Overall, the Nike LeBron 18 is almost a beast. Are they bad boys? Yes. The cushion is simply amazing. Traction is solid too. However, they do have some lateral instability and a stiff, annoying tongue. 

But the shoe’s plush cushioning and fantastic bounce do something that isn’t easy: justify the shoe’s $200 price tag. Read the full review.

Nike LeBron 18 Lakers

Nike LeBron 17 Shoes

Released in September of 2019, the Nike LeBron 17 is a very solid shoe, with some excellent features and other not so great ones.

The cushion is clearly the highlight of the LeBron 17, the materials and lockdown are great, and the traction is the biggest drawback.

 

Nike LeBron 17 Grafitti

Nike LeBron 17 Graffiti | Detailed Look and Review

The Nike LeBron 17 Graffiti is a mashup of a classic LeBron 4 colorway and the LeBron 17. It’s an interesting marriage of two very different shoes. The combination of the foamposite-laden LeBron 4 and the mostly knit LeBron 17 showcases the variety of the 17 years of LeBron’s signature line.

The Nike LeBron 17 Low is set to debut in a TuneSquad colorway. Changing things up a bit from the mid top Nike LeBron 17, the lows takes things down a notch on all fronts.

Nike LeBron 17 ‘Lakeshow’ | Detailed Look and Review

After reviewing the Nike LeBron 17 ‘In the Arena’ we have a new look at the upcoming Nike LeBron 17 ‘Lakeshow’. The Nike LeBron 17 offers a brand-new maximum cushioning setup featuring two large volume Zoom Air pods under the forefoot and what Nike calls an Air Max C unit from midfoot to heel.

Nike LeBron 16 Shoes

The Nike LeBron 16 is one of the best LeBron models ever. The shoe’s build accommodates most types of players, a key difference from previous LeBron signature shoes.

The Nike LeBron 16 fixes most of the issues found in the LeBron 15, an almost-great shoe. In the LeBron 16, you’ll get better traction, a more stable midsole, more responsive cushioning, and a more contained upper.

The LeBron 16 is versatile enough that it will suit any play style on the court. The shoe simply handles everything thrown at it and is one of the most fun shoes in the LeBron signature line. 

Nike LeBron 15 Shoes

The Nike LeBron 15 is a shoe with some excellent features and some lackluster ones. Materials and fit are highlights while the cushion is the best Nike has offered in years. The stability, however, was a concern and makes you feel a bit tippy on court.

If you’re willing to sacrifice lateral stability in lieu of cushion, then you’ll enjoy the LeBron 15 immensely. 

Nike LeBron 14 Shoes

The Nike LeBron 14 is a bit inconsistent, but not a bad shoe. Impact protection and overall mobility are two really great features. Forefoot stability and overall containment upon lateral moves are two features that Nike needs to improve upon. The traction was good, but not excellent, as the shoe tended to accumulate dirt after some time on court.

This model is best suited for smaller players that want or need impact protection while still being able to move freely. The shoes will also cater well to bigger, mobile players.

Nike LeBron 13 Shoes

The Nike LeBron 13 is an excellent on court performer, although they might not be everyone’s favorite aesthetically 

Traction and cushion are two of the shoe’s main strong points, as are the materials. The materials are an improvement on the Nike LeBron 12 and offer a well-balanced combination of flexibility, mobility and support. They’re lightweight, despite how bulky they look. 

 

Nike LeBron 12 Shoes

 The Nike LeBron 12 is a well-rounded performer on the court. The shoe’s best features are its fit and materials, which provide a ton of support, but not much ventilation. 

The traction is also above average on the LeBron 12. 

Nike LeBron 11 Shoes

The Nike LeBron 11 is a great shoe that needs ample time to be properly broken in. Once the shoe conforms to your foot, it provides a ton of cushion, a perfect fit, and lots of support.

The Nike LeBron 11 is one of the best shoes in the line, with tons of tech, and a futuristic look that many enjoy.
