Nike LeBron 15 “Graffiti” Performance Review

LeBron debuted a “Graffiti” colorway of his LeBron 15 silhouette dressed primarily in white and black. I bought it late, because of I waited for a good price , for this one , actually give me a great  performance , we will talking it details .


The King’s latest sneaker? It’s somehow made for both, and it’ll draw eyeballs both on the court and off. Off the court, there’s the distinct look, something futuristic, driven by what Nike calls BattleKnit.The biggest important of the Lebron 15 is the upgraded version of the Flyknit upper (Battleknit), which feels like a combination of Flyknit and Flyweave.
Flyweave, also known as Performance Woven, is a more robust and more complex weaving process than KD8, Air Jordan 29 to Air Jordan 31. It is a bit durable, strong and has good support. but I felt a little  it is stiff and bad ventilation than Flyknit shoes .If you dont like the stiff upper used on the LeBron 13 and the cheap but soft materials used on the LeBron 14, you may find that the material will be the favorite one of your choose.



Battleknit is more like a good combine between Flyknit and Flyweave, this kind of material keep the  Flyknit comfort and Flyweave sturdiness.
The collar of Lebron 15 is much easier to wear than the previous version , and the black area is more elastic and does not cause pressure on the foot. The wrap is strong and the width of the forefoot is moderate. personally I  like it, the court  feeling  is great.
The cross-stitched diamond weave of the Lebron 15 looks more strong and  actually this material provides some support for the upper.


Supporting :

For the supporting , though Battleknit is more comfortable and nice supporting , but because of the design of ankle  which without supporting , it is almost give up the protection of ankle , that is dangerous,especially for the fast running .


Looking at the Lebron 14, the supporting of Lebron 14 will be better than Lebron 15. because of the Lebron 14 give more attention of the supporting , this one will be  lockdown and protection than 15. For the  Lebron 15 , nine times out of ten it happens to be support that you giving up.

Traditional support features like a torsional midfoot shank and TPU heel counter are all in place and work well. However, the midsole and outsole lack a wide enough base and it really hurt the lateral stability and overall support.


Although a TPU has been added to the Phylon midsole of the Lebron 15, this only improves the torsion resistance of the sneakers. Lebron 15, which has no rollover prevention, so we feel unstability.
The Battleknit upper is also unable to make up, and there is no under-supporting problem caused by the anti-rollover angle design. On the Lebron 10, on the outside of the upper, a long TPU is used to strengthen the side support. This improves the overall stability of the shoe, and the Lebron 15 has nothing but the Battleknit upper. as we know the material just have been not enough of the supporting and protection .

But the BattleKnit material changes the game here, too: These LeBrons have a tight, sock-like fit, and the material locks your foot to the sole nicely. The resulting shoe is comfortable, and it moves with you on the court, without ever feeling overly tight.

Regarding the protection design of the toe anti-stepping, the integrated Battleknit upper is reinforced at the big mother’s toe, and the Lebron 15’s toe anti-tread is still much better than the Lebron 14.

For the cushioning :

The Lebron series has always been a “top cushioning”. Of course, Lebron 15’s cushioning is also the technology part that everyone cares about. The LeBron 15 is use Zoom Air combined with Max Air’s cushioning  at firstly.
Note that for the first time, the air cushion of the LeBron 15 is completely different from the LeBron 10, and the air cushion of the LeBron 15 is more like the “Zoom Max”. I guess that the more  weight  guy will be  like this kind of cushion much , but for the light guy , they can not felt the zoom .



LeBron 15 features four-way articulated ZOOM Air & MAX Air mesh up together with pretty thick Phylon layer on top to keep all this AIR madness controlled. And of course, this particular setup alone from a construction stamp point, reminds me of the KD 9’s articulated ZOOM Air tooling.


The Lebron logo as usually .

For the traction :

LeBron 15’s outsole pattern uses a small scale-like small grain pattern, which performs well in a clean indoor grip, but it is greatly reduced in terms of dust and water. It may also be a small stone collector in the field.

They didn’t live up to my expectations completely, as the performance wasn’t on that hall of fame level even though, this particular colorway features a solid rubber compound with a translucent one. Maybe the  translucent



I didn’t feel clumsy or high of the ground like with the past LeBron’s sneakers. The 15 does play completely different from what we used to since the tooling itself plays whole lot lighter & smoother, delivering enjoyable heel to toe transition.

The signature of the pull tab.


Overall,  the ZOOM Air and MAX Air midsole that does deliver ton of impact protection and bouncy ride , and translucent traction just ok, but the grip is great.

Nike LeBron 15 “ASHES” Performance Review

LeBron James is already calling the Nike LeBron 15 ASHES his favorite signature shoe since released , and there are a lot of  colrway  of shoes has been released so far

Today we are talking about it .

For the cushioning :  cushioning unit is called BattleMax and features compartments of visibile Zoom Air.  that is the newest design so far.

For the BattleMax, the bounce and feedback felt from the Zoom units is awesome. This isn’t the first time this type of cushion has been utilized in a LeBron model (the last time was the LeBron 10) but articulation is present this time around so overall mobility has greatly increased.

I think the set up is perfect.  Lateral stability which a bit better than the J10 due to wrapping the front portion of the Air unit in Phylon . For me ,  it is nicely ,I can feel the bounce and feedback in the court.  I’m not sure why there isn’t a true outrigger on a shoe that rides on a platform made of Air, but that’s what we’ve got to work with here.

If you’re a linear player, like LeBron, then you shouldn’t have many issues with stability and support. However, if you move laterally often then you’ll likely feel the instability and it’ll hinder your on court performance. It caused me to hesitate instead of moving as I normally would around the court.


For the material :The upper is a textured knit material called BattleKnit as it features a textured weave that adds depth in design .

If you dont like the stiff upper used on the LeBron 13 and the cheap but soft materials used on the LeBron 14, you may find that the material will be the favorite one of your choose.

We can see  some areas of the knit are thicker than others while high wear areas are glued a bit because of it will be more  durability. For me , I felt comfortable and secure , it is nicely .

For the supporting : An aggressive heel counter is the only external piece on the upper, so it’s clear that designer Jason Petrie went super minimal for the LeBron 15 shoes.  Traditional support features like a torsional midfoot shank and TPU heel counter are all in place and work well. Hwoever, the midsole and outsole lack a wide enough base and it really hurt the lateral stability and overall support. Again, if you’re a linear player then you should be fine. If you move around laterally then you may have the same experience I had in them.


For the traction .  the traction was solid but it is great . I can feel the  the triangle pattern bite and grip the court really well from a linear standpoint. however,the way the pattern is implemented seems to be straight across the surface.  so maybe it maybe not suit for the  wet  court . And If some portions of the pattern were turned a bit I feel lateral coverage would’ve had that same bite that it offers linearly.

For me , the court I had played on was one of the most pristine surfaces I’ve had the pleasure of encountering. actually  I dont like the solid traction , and  there killer colorways releasing that use translucent rubber that will be more enticing than some of the offerings that use solid rubber, maybe  the translucent rubber will be  great on the  outcourt

Overall ,  It is amazing , I hope that  the LeBron 16 that adds lateral stability while retaining all of the awesomeness that is Max Zoom Air.
