LeBron James won his fourth NBA championship in the Nike LeBron 18 sneakers.
The sneaker borrows much of the look from the Nike LeBron 16 and 17, particularly with the large Air Max unit in the heel for impact protection. LeBron loves Air so much that bags are used in between the laces as well. The Zoom Air cushioning in the past models get upgraded to being full-length, running from your toe all the way to the inside of the Air Max. This gives James the quick bounce needed wherever he steps. Knitposite 2.0 is used on the upper, taking elements of the last three LeBron styles to combine for a comfortable and durable knit material.
LeBron debuted the shoe off-court in the 2020 NBA Playoffs in the Orlando Disney World bubble. He saved the on-court wears for the NBA Finals against his former team the Miami Heat.
