The latest Nike LeBron James branded footwear has been unveiled, and it’s looking like it will be a very lightweight shoe. Previous models were a bit bulkier, which was both good and bad.
I got hooked on the LeBron James 10 simply because of the comfort of the shoe for casual wear. This came from the AirMax 360 airbag that was very prominent at the bottom of the shoe. This feature, or something close to it has been present on LeBron James shoes for a few years. Not anymore. The LBJ 11 no longer has a visible AirMax 360 airbag. Instead, it emphasizes light weight. A size nine shoe weighs just 14.5 oz.
The upper features Hyperposite technology for lock-down, a Hyperfuse construction and Dynamic Flywire tech to keep it all cinched down.The cushion comes from a full-length Lunarlon sole with a Nike Zoom unit – a first for LBJ shoes. So what does that all mean? They’re just fancy brand names for a lightweight, durable and flexible shoe.
The Nike LeBron James 11 will be launched this October for about $200(USD).
