The overseas team at FastPass has cut into latest LeBron sneaker so here’s the Nike LeBron 15 deconstructed.
Starting with the upper, not much has changed from the LeBron 15, as Battleknit is utilized just the same. The OrthoLite sockliner, which provides step-in comfort, is exactly the same as what’s used on the mid.
Things begin to differ from the LeBron 15 mid with the torsional TPU plate. Being that the LeBron 15 Low utilizes forefoot Zoom Air and a substantial volume of Air Max at the heel, a small modified plate was used — presumably, to reduce stiffness. The forefoot Zoom Air unit (bottom-loaded) comes in at over 10mm thick (comparable to the unit in the Nike PG 2) while the Air Max unit basically makes up the entire heel at a 21mm thick.
For those wondering how the tooling compared to the previous LeBron low models, the LeBron 15 Low would be most like the LeBron 13 Low. However, that iteration included two smaller Hex Zoom units at the forefoot, while the LeBron 14 Low actually featured the same tooling as its mid-top counterpart with Hex Zoom throughout and a large heel Zoom unit.
