Comfort Over Style
For a player whose athleticism is just but one weapon in his arsenal, a comfortable yet light-weight shoe is essential. With this in mind, designers in Nike have come up with Lebron James VI.
The past Lebrons, as what they call the LBJ shoes collection, was more on the bigger and heavier side. And weekend warriors just could not bare additional weight on their feet. After all, they are not the six-foot-eight 260-pound forward who can dunk virtually from any angle of the playing court. Even Lebron James himself took notice of the fact that consumers think of buying basketball shoes more for off-court than using them in an actual basketball game. So the designers looked back on the first one, the Air Zoom Generations which has an off-court friendly design, and created Lebron James VI.
The shoe does not compromise comfort and performance, yet it has found a way to keep it as light as possible. It’s like fusing Air Zoom Generations and Lebron Air Force 1. Cushioning is one of the factors taken into consideration, with the Zoom Air taking much of the pressure off the feet. Its fit sleeve, on the other hand, makes sure that the shoe is comfortable enough to wear while not constricting your foot.
The Air Max Lebron VI is arguably the simplest and least adorned Lebron shoe since perhaps the Air Zoom Generation. But don’t get fooled by its rather simple design for it can really pack a punch when it is intended for its original purpose – as basketball shoes.
