Cavaliers forward LeBron James is on a mission to bring an NBA championship to Cleveland. If he succeeds, it will be his third and Cleveland's first.
James needs a basketball shoe that will work just as hard as he does in the Playoffs. That shoe? The new LeBron 13 Elite.
An updated version of the original LeBron 13, the Elite is slimmer, lighter, and faster, incorporating many technical upgrades, including a carbon fiber shank, a tough Kurim cage upper and, as you can see in the bottom photo below, a total of six Zoom Air sole units.
All of these upgrades, combined with a full-length bootie and a leather toecap, provide three key benefits: dynamic lockdown, optimal stability, and articulated responsive cushioning—making the LeBron 13 Elite the perfect shoe for the Playoffs.
You can get a pair of the red LeBron 13 Elites on April 14 at select stores and nike.com. Or you can wait until other colors come out on May 5 (white) and May 26 (black).
