It’ s Christmas Day and Nike just officially unveiled the shoes LeBron James will be wearing against the Golden State Warriors: the Nike LeBron 14
1,Hex Zoom Air
Since from Lebron 12, the series of Lebron have been utilized the zoom air , but there are a little difference in every generation . Lebron 14 utilize large block hex zoom air in heel than before generation ,and the forefoot is based on the force (at least should be LeBron James I often force the position) to arrange the other three small Zoom Air they are in the lateral forefoot medial, lateral, and near the arch under.
The hexagonal Zoom Air feature is very elastic, not too soft, This tech just use in the LeBron12 / 13 several training shoes.
When i wear it play in the first time , i feel it is a little stiff . But reaction of zoom air is fast than KD 9/AJ 13 . Here is open hole in the heel , we can see the logo of Lebron James .
The digi-camo pattern gripped well but there are tiny Areas that have been cored out and dust will collect in those users quickly. Keeping them clean is a must if you want to maintain grip on-court.
The rubber of rubber compound Nike tweets to use is what helped maintain traction in between wiping because it’s fairly soft and a bit tacky.Also it is will collect dust quickly.
And Lebron 14 will worn quickly if you play basketball in the outdoor ground .but it will not destroy the rubber on your shoes within a matter of days.
The material of vamp is slightly more complicated. Lebron 14 abandoned the material of Hyperposite,using three layer type light vamp and elastic cloth inner layer this time . there is a hole in the foam and using thin fabric in outer layer , Overall is very light .
The design of full inner shoe,seems similar to the Soldier10 , but it is very hard to wear , we need to clutch the tongue and heel of the pull ring to wear .And it is can not protect the ankle ,even though it is high version of shoes .
It is a little TPU exist, but it is not effect when we play basketball . Overall the shoes is quite decent, comfortable and breathable .
Starting the color of the black can be said to be plain, but this pair of BHM color can be said to be shine . Straps on the hook of the Phnom Penh, gold powder,on the shoelace , the metal of shoeslace, tongue and heel bronzing LeBron James logo and so on, all of these have shown that LeBron 14 BHM is worth!
Overall – The LeBron 14 isn’t perfect,Traction wasn’t the best, but it wasn’t bad either; it’ll get the job done so long as you keep it clean.if want or need impact protection while still being able to move freely
