The shoe, designed by Nike in collaboration with three-time NBA champion LeBron James, will be available soon.
Back in June of this year, Nike and basketball player LeBron James introduced their 17th collaboration - branded Nike LeBron XVII sneakers. But if earlier potential buyers were only teased with hints and promises, now the exact release date of the novelty has been named. Sneakers will appear on the shelves on September 27.
The main challenge facing Nike was to create a shoe that provides support for the foot while increasing the speed of movement. With this model, the designers wanted to breathe new life into the LeBron line, add futuristic motifs to it, while providing the best technological performance that a giant like Nike is capable of today.
LeBron XVII have a gray knitted texture, which was created using thermoformed threads. The top of the sneakers is made in the form of large notches, which looks very unusual. The signature design features of the sneaker are the inscriptions on the tongue - I'm King, LJ and 23.
One of the hallmarks of the new shoe is the increase in Max Air pockets. This option was previously present in the sneakers of the line, and now, at the insistence of the athlete himself, the air volume has been maximized. And under the compartments with air, there is also a soft layer of foam material. This provides unparalleled stability and support.
In addition to the Max Air cushions located under the heel, the forefoot is also protected. To do this, the shoes are equipped with Air Zoom, similar solutions for the lateral and forefoot. Thinking through the technical solutions, the creators of the sneakers relied on the needs of the basketball player himself, for whom it is very important to ensure safety and support at the landing stage after jumps.
New Nike Model presented just before the start of the new gaming season. It is a worthy continuation of the popular line and in a few days it will be available in stores.
