We hope court feel isn’t your thing if you’re looking at purchasing the upcoming Nike LeBron 17.
FastPass.cn is back doing what they do best — taking sneakers apart and giving everyone all the information they could possibly want or need as to how the shoe is constructed & assembled. In addition to showing us how these shoes are made, it also gives us more insight into the measurements of the products.
Not only do we have a couple of large volume (16mm) forefoot Zoom Air units, but coupled with the stack height of the foam midsole, it looks like wearers will be standing about 23mm off the floor towards the front of the shoe. That is quite high, even compared to other max cushioned shoes, so we hope court feel isn’t your thing if you were looking at buying the Nike LeBron 17 upon its release.
The real Air Max unit is constructed just like the Air Max 270 and 720 units. It’s basically a rim of Air instead of covering the entire area in air. We hope the Air unit is pressurized enough to not feel unstable as the Air Max 270 and 720 can feel a bit tippy at times — and that is just with casual wear.
Knitposite looks interesting. It doesn’t look to be actual Posite material. However, it does look like the fibers that make up the knit are urethane coated which would mimic Posite material effectively enough.
We hope you enjoy FastPass‘ full deconstruction of the Nike LeBron 17. The shoe is scheduled to release beginning September 27 at a retail price of $200.
