Editor’s Notes: On the heels of LeBron leading the LA Lakers to a 16th NBA trophy, and earning himself the Finals MVP award in doing so, Nike’s LeBron 18 is as much a performance sneaker as a celebration of the man himself.
Engineered to facilitate a style like LeBron’s, the LeBron 18 combines various cushioning techniques underfoot to maximize energy return on acceleration. High-quality support across the shoe also looks to reduce the stress put on a player’s body during bursts of energy.
Visually, the model builds off a black-and-white base palette. A multicolored outsole mirrors graffiti-style embellishment to the tongue and heel for a bold finish.
