LEBRON XVIII "MINNEAPOLIS"
THE EVOLUTION OF FORCE:
An Air of greatness, elevated. The LeBron 18 continues the tradition of raising the standard of basketball performance footwear with the unique pairing of a full-length Zoom Air unit and a Max Air unit in the heel. This game-changing silhouette is designed to respond to the force LeBron generates, optimize his quick first step and bolster his explosive finishes at the rim. It’s engineered for LeBron James but made for every athlete looking to elevate their greatness.
Power On the Court: Max Air provides impact cushioning under the heel. A molded TPU heel counter helps stabilize the foot while you generate force on the court.
Generate Speed: A full-length Zoom Air unit is nestled within the Max Air under the heel and extends into the forefoot. The high-volume unit helps provide energy return that's fine-tuned for speed.
Lace Up, Lock In: KnitPosite 2.0 is lightweight and breathable, with knit-in stretch for a secure fit. Laces feed through tunnels engineered into the knit, helping anchor you down without extra weight.
Tongue Comfort: 3 pods embedded in each tongue provide comfort over the top of your foot.
Grid Traction: The grid-like pattern on the outsole provides grippy traction in multiple directions. The diamond-shaped cutouts help reduce weight and expose the cushioning inside.
