After a LeBron Ambassador 9 that exceeded expectations and scored incredibly high marks in its performance review, Nike opted for the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” approach for the LeBron Ambassador 10.
While the Swoosh placement is different, and the silhouette now has a midfoot strap for added lockdown (which wasn’t a problem in the Ambassador 9, just ask Stanley T.), the model is largely unchanged.
However, what has changed is the Flywire — there isn’t any used on the Ambassador 10. Instead, regular lace loops make up the eyestays, and an inner bootie rises up above the ankle.
The forefoot and heel Zoom setup appears to be unchanged, but without official tech specs it may be best to stick with the LeBron Ambassador 9 (which we know works well). XDR rubber is still used for all the outdoor hoopers.

The Ambassador 9 ($130) jumped off at the top of 2017 and to cap off 2017, the Ambassador 10 is arriving at retailers overseas like id4shoes.
