The herringbone pattern blades on the outsole are deep with is great for the traction properties of the sneaker, but the entire outsole is divided into three separate parts. The heel has a separate outsole, the arch area has a separate island outsole if you will, and the front of the sneaker has a separate outsole as well. Every single one of those three outsole parts is harder and sturdier than on the predecessor’s outsole. The thickness and sturdiness make this sneaker appropriate to wear inside and on the outside, and it will easily push the dirt from your sneakers.
The look and practicality merge in this outsole, and that also means that not only you’ll be left with cleaner sneakers, but you’ll also be enjoying a game of basketball on your local neighborhood court, and in your local enclosed gymnasium. Yes, it’s established that the outsole is a real beauty, but just you wait until you see the midsole.
They also pointed out that the airbags gave the shoes their bouncy springy feel, which is perfect in a game of basketball. And you know that’s responsible for all that bouncy feel? The combined efforts of Max Air and Zoom Air cushioning system. Both of the systems help absorb the impact of hard landings often found in the game of basketball. After the landing the cushioning then bounces back with explosive energy return, leaving your foot rested and full of energy. Some of them have even compared the feeling of wearing the sneakers to jumping on a trampoline. The responsiveness is done right, and the airbags apparently played a huge role in the maintaining of balance.
If you take a closer look at the tongue of the shoe, you’ll notice that it’s made out of leather allowing for seamless entry into the shoe, which only amps up the comfort and the easy access to the shoe. The lacing system is improved also. The Nike LeBron 16 has an extra lace feeds in upper that let you customize the lacing to your specifications and desires. The extra lace feeds in the upper allow the shoe to have a better and more secure fit, and they look amazing as well. The signature graphic on the tongue is spread across both shoes, and both the collar and the tongue have extra padding for a better fit. The tongue of the LeBron 16 models is a new and improved version of the tongue in the previous model. It has a built-in gusset that widens the entry and then collapses beneath the laces when you lock the sneaker in tightly.
The special design allows you to pop the tongue and use the extra lace feeds on the sides of the tongue allows you to customize your fit better.
One last thing that helps with the easement of the putting on the shoes the textile loop on the back of the shoe, that helps you grab the shoe better and put in on your feet. You’ll love that little loop on the sneaker. Many of the customers have, as it’s been said that it makes the shoes less complicated to put on and to take them off once you’re done wearing them.
Yes, the leg moves freely, and it adds to the overall comfort, but having a way to much space can be disastrous for comfort and stability. When your foot runs amuck in the shoe, disaster could strike, as the foot doesn’t have the necessary structure and balance that it needs. Injuries can easily occur, so leaving too much space in the upper was a good idea that was given a bad final result. It’s always good to leave space, but having too much space is never a good idea for a shoe, especially for a sports style of a shoe.
Yes, it’s great to have an upper that’s structured and flexible. It’s great to have a thick, sturdy and durable outsole. They all help with support. But when your feet aren’t supported from within it all goes to waste. The sneaker’s outsole is the one that first touches the ground, but the midsole is the first to receive the hitting form that ground. And every hit to the midsole is also a hit to your foot. So, it’s better to have a responsive and springy midsole, that could cushion the blow to the foot, and leave you pain-free.
The impact cushioning and instant responsive feel that you’ll get with the sneaker are paramount to the overall comfort and stability. The shoes will become your best ally in a game of neighborhood basketball, or for a casual wearing if you’re nurturing a more sport style in your everyday outfits
