    Images will be appearing soon but here is what we know so far. The model is more evolutionary than revolutionary.

    Same Zoom Max cushioning setup as the LeBron 15

    Evolution of the battle knit upper

    Improved traction pattern

    Lateral stability improvements (think outriggers)

    Many many silly story telling ideas just to sell more shoes

    And.... MAYBE NikeID

    Stay tuned!

    Hopefully this means outriggers.

    And the cushion is LeBron 10 bouncy

    Less translucent soles, more solid soles

    Still a high? I’d be ok with all that if it was more of a mid.

    Absolutely loved the 15s.

    Hopefully the 16s build on them.

    The more like the 15 lows the better for the 16’s...

    Not sure if sarcasm, but most colors are decided way in advance.

    These haven't gone into production and RD is in October right? Shouldn't be too hard to revise that list with some Black/Yellow or Black/Purple joints.

    Don't get the love for outriggers.
