The signature of LeBron and product information on the side of shoebox
Unboxing: It looks cool for the all black vamp with white shoe tongue.
Front View: It looks cool and special for the black vamp with white shoe tongue, and horsehair leather on shoe heel.
The special design of this pair of LeBron 16 EP is the shoe tongue and shoe heel.
It’s printed with the knight of chess on the shoe tongue. No. 4 means 4 knights. And it has LeBron’s mark on the bottom of shoe tongue.
The shoe heel uses different material as normal LeBron 16 EP. The shoe heel has Swoosh logo and LeBron’s signature. The insole, air cushion and outsole are also black. So, the sole is not special.
The shoe tongue and vamp are connected with a piece of soft leather.
The shoe head uses integrated knitted design. The knitted vamp is thick enough.
The embroidery knight on the shoe tongue.
The shoe tongue is leather and has punching design.
The knitted vamp looks great. It’s thick, so the lateral support is good.
The shoe heel doesn’t use the traditional leather and the mark of lion head.
It uses horsehair material with LeBron’s logo. It looks cool.
The sole is all black. It will be better if it’s transparent black sole.
The outsole is herringbone. It’s separated to 4 pieces, heel, arch, forefoot and tiptoe. Except the tiptoe part, other 3 parts have the air cushion.
The LeBron’s dunking logo on the heel of outsole looks great.
The herringbone grain of forefoot sole and tiptoe have a division, it’s also the division point of air cushion.
It uses XDR rubber, which is wear-resisting.
The shoe-pad also uses black and white chess pieces. The vamp has two layers, the black knitted vamp and white inlayer.
The shoe tag is printed inside.
It’s seamed with AKOH inside of the shoe tongue.
The unit weight of shoes is 487g. It’s moderate, not very heavy.
It looks cool, but the shoe tongue is a little too high and stiff. It needs to wear high socks. If not, it will chafe the feet.
Overall, the colorway of LeBron 16 EP looks cool. It’s also comfortable. As the material of shoe tongue is stiff, it needs to wear high socks. And the feeling of air cushion is also stiff. As the center of gravity is a little high, and the width is not wide enough, so the stability is not good enough. So I think this pair of shoes is more suitable to wear for walking on the street.
