In my opinion, LeBron 15 should be the most successful shoes in present LBJ series shoes. LBJ weared LeBron 15 in the whole season, except that he weared Soldier 12 in some of the competitions. With the innovation of Flyknit technology, the colorway of vamp is unprecedented. It’s very hot-sale from last year.
Today we tested the LeBron 15 graffiti colorway which is easier to buy. The white and black colorway is succient. With the crystal outsole, it looks cool.
- Protection： 8 scores
Although it’s high model, but actually the shoelaces and TPU on shoe heel has better protective effect. The Flyknit vamp is thick enough, the air permeability is not good, but it still can’t fit the foot well.
The shoe collar is easier for foot to put-on than LeBron 14. After fastening the shoelaces, it’s not so tight as Soldier 10.
The TPU on shoe heel is big. It can offer great stability. But the anti-rollover is not good. Although it has made dense knit on some positions of vamp, which improves the protective and supporting performance. But due to the thick insole, I still feel that it’s unstable when turning.
- Cushion Performance: 10 scores
I would like to offer full score for the mixture of Max Air and Zoom Air cushion. The cushion performance is great. The feedback of LeBron 15 is stronger than LeBron 14. After putting-on LeBron 15, I can feel the feedback from air cushion obviously on every step.
When jumping, I can also feel upward impulsion obviously. It’s very suitable for the players who like jumping shot.
- Traction Performance：9 scores
After seeing the grain of outsole, I’m doubt for its traction performance. But the effect is very unexpected after actual combat. The traction performance is almost perfect whether on wood floor or plastic rubber court. But this pair of LeBron 15 is crystal outsole. So it’s easy to be slipped when the wood floor has water.
But the disadvantage of the crystal outsole is not wear resistant. After a few months, you can see the grain of front sole is almost weared off. And the crystal outsole starts yellowing. I’m sad.
- Overall: 9 scores
As a pair of frontline shoes, LeBron 15 is already good enough. It’s lighter than AJ32. It’s more comfortable than KD series. But fit is worse than ZK series.
The Flyknit vamp of LeBron 15 should be the most comfortable one comparing with present other shoes. And it has a lot of colorways, you can find the one that you like. The price is declining now. It’s a good timing to purchase it.
