When you’re a four-time NBA MVP, you know a little bit about what it takes to be at the peak of your game. And, designed to those exact specifications, Nike and LeBron James took to James’ hometown of Akron, OH to unveil the new LEBRON 13. The LEBRON 13 combines everything we love about his previous signature models into one design, delivering a lockdown fit with dynamic cushioning to harness James’ power and speed. To achieve this fit, the LEBRON 13 offers a breathable mesh upper that hugs the foot while Flywire technology cables adapt and flex with your game. Nike also supplied their Hyperposite material on the midfoot and collar to protect against force and to add additional durability to the construction, while an asymmetrical lacing system supplements lockdown to further wrap your ankle and foot. Underneath, four Zoom Air Units provide maximum response and cushioning, delivered in a hexagonal shape with two units measuring 13mm thick to protect the peak pressure points at the heel and forefoot. The LEBRON 13 will be available in adult and kid’s sizes in a special “Written in the Stars” colorway beginning October 1 in Greater China followed by a global launch on October 10. Another LEBRON 13 colorway will launch on October 27 in a Cleveland colorway to mark their season opener. The shoe will also hit NIKEiD on September 30.
