LeBron James preferred sneaker for the 2021-22 NBA season is his signature Nike LeBron 19.
With almost two decades in the league, King James needs as much cushioning as possible to get to the finish line of the season. That’s where the large volume Air used in the heel and forefoot come in, with the famous Nike tech absorbing pressure when running and landing. The forefoot also features Zoom Air for responsiveness needed on quick first steps. To showcase James’ love of Air, a mini bubble even appears on the tongue. Support plates are added on the midfoot toward the laces as well as the heel to prevent rollovers.
You can find the Nike LeBron 19 at StockX and GOAT.
