Behind the Design
Lighter and Leaner – Just Like LeBron
For his latest signature shoe, LeBron wanted to build on what he started with the 12: a process of eliminating the excess. It’s the same thing he did during a recent offseason by overhauling his diet and his training regimen—dropping significant weight without sacrificing an ounce of strength. After a grueling 82-game season, the lighter LeBron 13 adds up to fresher legs when it counts the most.
Making it His Own
Most people think of 13 as an unlucky number. But LeBron has never really relied on luck. For a kid from Akron, Ohio, who’s made it to the top of the game, it’s always been about hard work and perseverance. Design tributes to LeBron’s journey include a crossed-out ‘XIII’ in back and the word ‘Akronite’ on the outsole—subtle reminders to honor your roots and make your own fate.
