Nike LeBron 15 Low Performance Review

Usually  people think that the performance of  low type  of the NBA star signature shoe never better than the high type of  shoes? LeBron 15 Low continues the excellent Battleknit upper, changes the midsole, and fixes the shortcomings of the high type of shoes  , it is abandon the stereotype review this time.

So we will check it closely  as below:

Traction :

Traction on the Nike LeBron 15 Low isn’t too far from what was used on the original Nike LeBron 15, but it was tweaked enough to make a difference.The LeBron 15 Low outsole consists of a solid triangular unit, similar to the “shoe stud” texture. The high type shoes divides the outsole into 4 blocks due to the configuration of the midsole cushion; due to the change of the LeBron 15 Low midsole configuration, the outsole is also adjusted to  a nice circle along the outsole.


LeBron 15 Low’s “studs” concept is the same as the high version, but the texture is  different. Compared to the Lebron 15 high , the low-profile version is more obliquely oriented (laterally) . The grip performance in the lateral movement and the change direction will be better.

The two versions of traction of Lebron  not too bad .Overall, the LeBron 15 Low’s grip doesn’t have too many “impressive” performance . There is no bright eye but also the LeBron never sliding if you play, and I think the grip is more better than LeBron 15 high .There has been a slight improvement in the grip, especially in the forefoot area where the contact floor , the part of forefoot increases the grip and the grain arrangement changes, but there is still room for improvement in the impetuous performance.



Cushion from the original LeBron 15 wasn’t carried over in any way, which I find unfortunate because the rear Air Max unit could have been a Max Zoom unit. Had it been Max Zoom I think the LeBron 15 Low would have been a bit more amazing than it already is.

The LeBron 15 high version  used  Zoom with Max is a top-notch of cushioning , but it is not suitable for most players. Although the LeBron 15 Low is a fan-shaped Zoom Air with a front-mounted foot,but we can felt the zoom much. Zoom Air has the great responsive of performance.

This setup does sit a bit higher off the ground than most guard shoes, but this shoe isn’t really for guards — although it can be. If you’re a smaller player that prefers to have something more substantial under your feet without feeling like you’re unstable or about to tip over upon movements and changes of direction then I think you’ll enjoy the LeBron 15 Low quite a bit.

In addition, the Max Air area of the hind foot is also very large, the outer side air cushion extends to the middle of the shoe body, and the overall hardness of the Max Air is also adjusted, even the light weight of the shoe friends can still feel its existence.


Even though the LeBron 15 Low changed the midsole configuration, but there is the similarity the   high version of Lebron 15. the midsole of both is very thick. Although the LeBron 15 Low forefoot has been changed to the lower-mounted Zoom Air, the previous test experience should give a better grip, but the LeBron 15 Low’s Phylon midsole is too thick,so I can felt I can handle the cushioning, even I personally feel higher than the high version, which is not the first step of running.


Lockdown and Material :


The LeBron 15 Low upper is made of the same “Battleknit” as the  same as high version. It is the  Nike’s signature woven material Flyknit but thickened to provide strength, this kind of material have been not too stiff , In addition, the whole shoe adopts one pieces cover design, which the thick wire with the heel and the Flywire of the shoelace hole,I can felt no more extra spaces no matter the toes, insteps and heels.

Battleknit is still the primary build and there doesn’t seem to be any real difference between models other than less material being used at the collar — something I was more than fine with since the collar of the LeBron 15 mid just felt useless to me.





Since Nike began producing the the Enhanced Performance version, the LeBron series has a relatively small size compared to other signature shoes of the same brand.we  recommended you can choose the smaller a half size if you are  are normal and thinner.There is a overwhelming  feeling ,because of the material of Battleknit can felt pressing the instep .


Supporting :


The supporting of Lebron 15 is nice .The Battleknit upper has a good thickness,and most of supporting is from the Lebron 15. In addition, the LeBron 15 Low’s upper is slightly harder than the high version.It is assumed that the material underneath the Battleknit is slightly different, and the LeBron 15 Low upper support is slightly .

Traditional support features like a torsional midfoot shank and TPU heel counter are all in place and work well.this time around the new midsole tooling setup gave the shoe a much needed outrigger for lateral support. This small addition to the shoe gave it the stability the mids lacked which only makes me wish the LeBron 15 Low had Max Zoom Air in the heel





The LeBron 15 Low has a  great  support design for the midsole and outsole. The mid-bottom “V” shaped of  TPU stabilizer enhances the torsional support of the arch area and the Phylon extends upwards on both sides to stabilize the shoes. The most eye-catching part is the Outrigger with a small outer bottom area. Even though the LeBron 15 , this small design ensures that the feet have sufficient rollover prevention. Protection effect.


While the Nike LeBron 15 was a great shoe for those that didn’t require a lot of lateral support and stability, the Nike LeBron 15 Low changes all of that to become a shoe that anyone can enjoy on court.


Overall,Nike LeBron15 Low give me a  good feeling of performance. Traction was solid while and there was a great balance of cushion without the loss of any mobility — even for us smaller guys. And the supporting is actually great too .
