Have you ever wondered why LeBron James, after playing for almost seven years, has not had any major injury in the NBA? His contemporaries have surely missed a couple of games due to nagging injuries, but the current MVP has been competing year after year with the same level of intensity.
This only proves that the “James shoes” or his signature sneakers are doing what they are supposed to do – protect the King’s foot and ankle. While most would think that these basketball shoes are designed to make the wearer look good on the court, they are actually built for protection. Even the mid-cut sneakers in the shoe collection are designed to have maximum ankle support. So, whether LeBron drives for a layup, soars for a two-handed power dunk or pull up for a quick jumper, he does not feel pressure since he knows that when he lands his foot, his sneaker will protect it from potential injury, or at least minimize the effect of these risks.
Of course, an athletic player with a muscular body on a six-foot-eight frame not only needs protection and support, but also comfort and stability. This is why most of James shoes are replete with cushioning that takes the pressure off the foot during sudden motion while not constricting its movement. This potent combination of comfort, style and protection has made LeBron’s signature collection a must-have for everyone. Just ask some of his teammates who are seen wearing an LB23 shoe on the court, and they would probably say that LeBron’s sneakers are one of the best they’ve ever worn.
