incredibly soft, like walking on air. feels like it put an extra half inch compared to the last lebrons. extra height make ankles feel like their gonna get sprained but got the hang of it after an hour. i put about 3 hours of actual ball time on them and it still feels like their not fully broken in. hard on the ankles when doing hard cuts or crossovers, maybe just not broken in yet.
Pros: lightweight, doesn't crease, runs true to size, durable, breathable
A champion needs kicks that are crafted for a king. Designed specifically for LeBron's game, the Nike LeBron XI basketball shoe promotes spectacular athleticism and game-winning play. The leaner and lower-to-the-ground design enhances aggressive, fast-paced play. For quick, LeBron-like drives, ultra-lightweight Flywire cables wrap the foot and adjusts dynamically with your movement. The cables tighten during quick cuts and sudden changes of direction to enhance support and fit when you need it most. Built with a full-length Nike Zoom Unit, the Phylon™ midsole brings an unmatched combination of impact protection and responsive cushioning for on-court comfort. Hyperfuse upper fuses three different layers of material together to create a nearly seamless design, resulting in ultra-light support and breathability. Thin, durable rubber outsole enhances court traction.
