The Zoom LeBron III was inspired by the personality and play of the future of the game - LeBron james. Based on the duality of LeBron's persona- a beast on the court and a fun-loving jokester off of it- the shoes has captured the essence of LBJ. For inspiration Nike looked at the athlete and the man, going for a balance of performance and luxury. The high top design of the Nike Air Zoom Lebron III features leather support tabs for lateral stability when making hard cuts, full length zoom air unit for maximum lightweight impact protection, a carbon fiber spring plate for a responsive spring-loaded effect, and a durable rubber outsole and perimeter traction patter for great traction on side to side moves. This low top version is the perfect match for your style on court and casual off court wear.
