The shoes have the Max Air unit under the heel which helps powerful athletes like LeBron with movement. The cushioning and thin mesh on the sides provide sufficient breathing room and comfort for the athletes.

Bron first wore it in their win against the Warriors on March 15. He dropped a triple-double in that game, scoring 22 points, while grabbing 10 rebounds and 11 assists. That is a remarkable start to his time with his new shoes. Sadly, he got injured in the fourth game he played while wearing those shoes.
