Following an unprecedented runway debut, Nike is telling you what you need to know about the LeBron 15 as it pertains to basketball.

On board once again as lead designer is Jason Petrie, who was given the task of creating the most technically advanced signature model of James' career. The LeBron 15 features evolved Flyknit construction that provides stretch, lockdown fit and durability, as well as a fully articulated cushioning system that combines Max Air and Zoom Air. A full bootie offers a one-to-one fit.

“This is my favorite shoe to date,” James told Nike. “The performance benefits and sophisticated look make this shoe a force on and off the court.”

After years of leather, mesh and posites, the LeBron signature line crosses over into Flyknit territory for the first time. James believes the technology keeps his shoe in line with the best performers.

“The number-one thing people should know about the LeBron 15 is that this new Nike Flyknit is something that's never been done in a performance shoe,” notes James. “It looks great, too. Since Jason and I started working on the LEBRON VII, we have always talked about how we not only want to have the top, top, top notch in performance, we want style, as well. We have a desire to create shoes that makes all people feel good when they put it on.”

The expectation is that the LeBron 15 will release in Oct. for $185. More information soon.
