Day two of our stay in LA started with actual court action. We were ushered over to nearby University of Southern California where we were among the first outside of the Nike testing group to hoop in the new Nike LeBron 15.
Catch the VP for Basketball Footwear at Nike, Kevin Dodson, talking about everything and anything you may have wanted to know about The King’s latest. In his hands is the “Ashes” colorway that made its way around the net last week. On our feet? The “Ghost” colorway. And yes, it’s crazy clean.
As far as on-court performance, the 15s should finally dispel any hesitations you might have about the Lebron shoes being only for big, strong, athletic types like Lebron (aka nobody). It’s light, it’s easy to slide into and you can really feel that attention they put in to making something that is both strong yet flexible.
Pro tip: cop the Ashes CW to ball in, grab the Ghosts for Sunday afternoons and white shirts.
