LeBron 18 "Play for the Future"
THE EVOLUTION OF FORCE.
LeBron knows his legacy is about more than on-court accomplishments and accolades, points scored, titles won. For him, it’s about leaving the game better off than before, for the generations who got next. The LeBron 18 "Play for the Future" colorway features a white/clear/blue-tinted design inspired by the clean, unpolluted air athletes* need to breathe when they ball, now and in the future.
Power On the Court
Max Air provides impact cushioning under the heel. A molded TPU heel counter helps stabilize the foot while you generate force on the court.
A full-length Zoom Air unit is nestled within the Max Air under the heel and extends into the forefoot. The high-volume unit helps provide energy return that's fine-tuned for speed.
Lace Up, Lock In
KnitPosite 2.0 is lightweight and breathable, with knit-in stretch for a secure fit. Laces feed through tunnels engineered into the knit, helping anchor you down without extra weight.
3 pods embedded in each tongue provide comfort over the top of your foot.
The grid-like pattern on the outsole provides grippy traction in multiple directions. The diamond-shaped cutouts help reduce weight and expose the cushioning inside.
"From the city of Akron, Ohio" molded into left midsole, "Established Nineteen Eighty Four" in right midsole.
Molded, padded collar fits snugly around the ankle.
