Nike LeBron 15 Low's supportive midsole

The bounciness of the Nike LeBron 15 Low is derived from the combination of Zoom Air and Air Max units in the midsole. The Zoom Air at the forefoot provides responsiveness and court feel.

As for the Air Max unit at the heel, it delivers optimum comfort and impact protection upon landing. The shoe model has an Ortholite insole to ensure step-in comfort.

Outsole setup of Nike LeBron 15 Low

The outsole of the Nike LeBron 15 Low is made of a translucent rubber compound. It boasts a multidirectional triangular and spiked traction pattern. While the pattern is known to grip any court surface well, the soft and pliable grooves easily wear off when repeatedly used outdoors.

Efficient lockdown system

Like the high-top version, the Nike LeBron 15 Low has a glove-like fit. Its upper is reinforced with Flywire, which is a lightweight technology that uses either Vectran or nylon filaments. The lace loops are connected to the Flywire, so the shoe easily delivers dependable lockdown when the laces are tightened.
