The new signature sneakers of the four-time NBA MVP is strikingly different, as it features what a report from Weartesters.com reported as 'Battleknit' upper, perhaps an upgrade of Nike's Flyknit tech. As for cushioning, it also has BattleMax tech, which looks like thicker version of the Max Zoom version found on the Nike KD signature line.
Also conspicuously absent is the Swooshless design as Nike's trademark Swoosh is noticeably absent on the upper of the shoe.
The Nike LeBron 15 is reportedly set for global release on October in time for the new NBA season.
