LeBron XV - Rising From the Ashes

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. If luck doesn’t get you there than your passion must.

No one radiates passion more than thirteen time NBA All-Star Lebron “King James” James. James never lets his love for the game wane even when support from his fans does.

After becoming an unrestricted free agent in July of 2010, James publicly announced his decision to transfer to the Miami Heat, ending his seven-year run with his home team, the Cleveland Cavilers. Fans decided to show him some real heat after the deceleration resulted in abrupt backlash across the country and public condemnation by the burning of his Cavs jersey. Nevertheless, the hate only added fuel to his fire and he rose from the ashes before going on to score more points, win more awards, and kick more…. ash.

LeBron XV

Customarily, Nike was there to pay homage with the release of the Lebron XV “Ashes” (897648-002) These kicks are the first of their kind, featuring exclusive elements that were designed specifically for the 6’8” king.

The uppers are composed of the brand new Nike BattleKnit fabric. A remixed iteration of Nike Flyknit, BattleKnit is modern and stylish with a reinforced structure for thorough protection and strength. The textured fabric is designed with differing degrees of elasticity that add depth to its’ constitution while hugging the feet for a personalized secure fit during aggressive gameplay.

The BattleKnit is accompanied by another shiny new piece of Nike technology, the BattleMax cushioning system. Presented as the love child between Nike Zoom Air and Air Max, BattleMax features characteristics of both to make up a plush lightweight padding that allows for amazing transitions, optimal impact protection, and responsive bounceback.

May no hater formed against thee prosper in these one-of-a kind kicks fit for a king. (10/28/17) For sizing information, be sure to check our Size Chart. Looking for a store near you? Head over to our Store Locator.
