For one pre-game warm-up in 2019, Ben Simmons strayed away from his inline basketball shoes for the Nike LeBron 16.
Simmons previously wore only two sneakers in his NBA career: the Nike Hyperdunk 2017 and Hyperdunk X. In college, Simmons rocked LeBrons and it appeared LeBron James hooked up Ben in this game against the Los Angeles Lakers.
The LeBron 16 boasts a BattleKnit upper that provides a soft, yet durable feel. The bouncy articulated Zoom Air bags add responsiveness. Outriggers were added to the sole to avoid tipping over for subtle ankle protection.
