Nike LeBron Witness 5: 

The fifth Witness shoe continues the tradition of providing LeBron-worthy performance for just half the price of the main Nike LeBrons. This shoe delivers the following:

  • Control. A net-like traction pattern covers the sole to ensure a multidirectional grip. 
  • Speed. Two Zoom Air units are strategically placed right below the ball of the foot for explosive energy return.
  • Lockdown. The light but sturdy materials and rigid heel counter work together to deliver support and stability.

LeBron Witness 5 vs LeBron Witness 4

Nike carries over a lot of the good things from the Witness 4 to the 5. The cushioning setup and the traction pattern are more or less similar in both models. After all, why fix something when it was never broken in the first place? What differentiates the 5 from its predecessor is a more streamlined look and faster performance.
