This shoe is similar to the previous model but with more refined features that make this a more effective piece of footwear. This is effective while allowing plenty of movement and leaping ability.
The hyperposite construction is still sturdy but allows for more movement with more clever placement of the stronger material. The placement along the top of the shoe also helps keep the shoe flexible while holding shape. It can be uncomfortable if worn for extended periods but is great otherwise.
The Flywire and laces help hold the whole top of the shoe down to the foot to keep energy flowing easily through the shoe. The outsole shank as it gives the shoe its shape while holding the arch of the foot in place. The heel loop also helps to make the shoe easy to put on and take off.
The outsole has pockets of airbags that help the wearer to leap further and higher while being comfortable to walk and run in. The midsole has a good amount of cushioning that helps to make sure that when the wearer is moving, the damage to their knees and ankles is minimalized.
Overall, this shoe is great for the sport of basketball and is still a step forward despite the comparisons to the previous shoe. Let us see if it will bring Lebron any luck this season.
