Nike has officially unveiled the brand new LeBron 17 silhouette.

For the upcoming NBA season, King James will wear the most Max Air ever in any of his sneakers. The new LeBron 17 comes with largest unit ever used for a LBJ sneaker and additional soft foam pod underneath the Max Air pod for even more cushioning. Additionally, Air Zoom units are also combined with the Max Air for responsive handling.

Constantly evolving its technology, Nike introduces Knitposite on the upper of the LeBron 17. This material is the next step in the evolution from Battleknit 2.0 on the LeBron 16. It's created through Flyknit's marriage with heat-molded yarns. Finally, LeBron's signature details have moved to the tongue on the latest sneaker.

You can grab the new LeBron 17 starting on September 27. While you wait, check out the history of the cushioning used in all of James' sneakers.
