Deconstructed Report

Vamp: The shoe collar is suitable for many foot types. The shoelaces can lock the foot well. But the thickness of vamp is too thick, so the air permeability is not good.

Insole: The separated ZOOM Air cushion is a little stiff in the beginning, but it will get better after breaking-in.

Overall: LEBRON SOLDIER XIII is a excellent basketball shoes. The performance of each part is good. If you are James’ fans, you can choose it without considering.
