Here’s the first complete overview of the Nike LeBron 13… every aspect… every angle… including the box! Let’s start with the packaging. Seems like for the first time since the Air Zoom Generation the new LeBron James signature shoe won’t come in the trademark drawer box. I know it’s “only a box”, but I’m puzzled trying to figure out why Nike decided to “downgrade” the package. Every sneakerhead knows this problem and the ability to stack boxes on top of each other is usually very much appreciated.
Now let’s take a closer look at the cushioning. The presented model is definitely the Men’s version hence the midfoot posite plate. However, it does seem there are only 3 Zoom Air units in the forefoot. The LeBron 12 had 4 pods and the Elite version came with 5. One of them is bigger, true, but why leave 2 pods empty? I just hope a full cushioning feature is not reserved for the Elite version only.
The new photos show more details regarding the new lacing system. Still… solving the issue of lacing under the posite panel will have to wait till we get the shoes for personal inspection. There’s one improvement over the last year’s model… the cut outs have been replaced with regular lace loops, which should help tying the laces accordingly to the desired lockdown.
