Main characteristics: The Nike LeBron 18 is designed to meet LeBron James’ powerful style of play. It features a lightweight and breathable KnitPosite 2.0 upper, which provides a secure fit, as well as a full-length Zoom Air unit in the Max Air to provide energy return. The Max Air provides shock cushioning under the heel, while a molded TPU heel counter then stabilizes the foot. Finally, Air units are integrated into the tongue to provide cushioning on the top of the foot.

Editor’s notes: Official images of the LeBron 18 “Melon Tint” have made their way online, leading us to believe a release is imminent. LeBron James wore the bright colorway of his new signature Nike sneaker to claim his fourth NBA championship on Sunday night when the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Miami Heat.
The “Melon Tint” LeBron 18 is a remarkably tonal affair, as the eye-catching orange shoe is outfitted with translucent detailing. The only aspect of the sneaker that isn’t completely covered in the melon hue is the insole, which incorporates James’ crown logo in complementary colors.
Nike has yet to announce a release date for the LeBron 18 “Melon Tint”, but expect a launch in the near future. As always, though, check back here for confirmation.
