The Nike LeBron 18 released in its first colorway, “Reflections”, and thanks to some of our friends at Foot Locker, Chris snagged a pair to review. Watch the video as he breaks down why he likes this colorway so much and then delivers a performance preview on one of the most anticipated shoes of the year.

What’s in the video?
In the video, Chris provides detailed information on Nike Basketball’s newest release from all the usual categories, providing the in-depth information you need. He supplies expert level opinions on the materials, cushioning, traction, support, and fit. Here’s some of what he discusses:
- Feels like a LeBron 11 and LeBron 17 mashup
- The Alpha project inspired box
- What happened when Chris tried a lace swap
- Milk crate traction that reminds of the Soldier line
- Why it feels lower to the ground than the LeBron 17
- Details on the 3 cushioning layers
- What Chris thinks of the huge heel counter
- How Battleknit 2.0 feels in hand and on foot
- That polarizing tongue
- Sizing recommendations
And as an added bonus, Mrs. Wing tells us what she likes about the LeBron 18 and then rants a bit about the $225 price tag of the Reflections colorway.
