The LeBron 15 took a different path than the previous three signature models, utilizing Flyknit instead of plastic and ditching the smaller Hex Zoom units for a massive, articulated Max Air and Zoom Air sole.
This was done to not only make the shoe lighter than ever before, but it also made the shoe more wearable for off-court usage. Nike’s collaboration with Ronnie Fieg’s KITH brand on multiple LeBron 15s (one is seen above) further showcased a new approach to LeBron’s signature line. Other colorways include the #LeBronWatch versions that paid homage to classic colorways from Nike athletes in Ken Griffey Jr. and Deion Sanders.
As for on the court, the King’s time in the LeBron 15 was up and down. James would see his team fall behind the rest of the Eastern Conference early on and nearly half his team got traded close to the deadline. On the other hand, James did hit multiple game-winners in the 15, and won 2018 All-Star MVP honors as well.
