LeBron XXI "Algae"
Last time around, LeBron flipped the script on his shoe game as only the King can. The encore is even better. The LeBron XXI has a cabling system that works with Zoom Air cushioning and a light, low-to-the-ground design, giving you agile fluidity and explosiveness without excess weight. Created for your ascent and the next generation of hoopers, it’s ideal for Bron-like open-floor attacks and rising toward the rim when the game’s pace turns up. This special design is inspired by the supportive nature of the conchiolin, the binding agent that holds layers of the pearl and mother of pearl together. The leather has an iridescent luster that nods to the pearl-making process.
LeBron is the shield for his daughter, who helped the King grow as a man and softened him as a dad. He feels the need to protect her always, the same way an oyster shelters a pearl to reach its full potential. The colors and graphics of the LeBron XXI nod to this special daddy/daughter relationship.
Cloaked and Contained
We reinforced lightweight mesh with a 360-degree zonal cabling system for optimal containment. We disguised it all by a premium, lightweight drapery for a cloaked finishing touch.
Soften the Rise
A Zoom Air unit in the heel and forefoot supports landing and gives you a propulsive feeling. We paired them with a soft, springy midsole to help ensure a pillowy feel.
The airy, breathable fabric on the upper is made of a dimensional mesh that’s lightweight, durable and contained.
Steady and Sturdy
A carbon fiber midfoot plate helps keep you steady and sturdy.
