Shoe test | LeBron 19 sends heavy

Releasing a LeBron James signature shoe is always an event. Although production and supply issues associated with the Covid-19 epidemic hampered the marketing of this model, Basket USA could not miss the pair, which will be unique in King’s career.

It’s really with this LeBron 19 It was a difficult task to play his own role in King’s “Space Jam: New Era” and thus replacing Michael Jordan with all his acting talents.

Outside of the many colors already on sale since last summer, the “space jam” aspect is evident in the pair’s design, with somewhat imaginative and lots of air bubbles in the finish of the collar, on the back of the shoe with a large bubble, in the middle of a tongue and of course cushioning and quality general comfort. To make sure.

The other components that stand out in this LeBron 19 and clearly contrast with the trend of increasingly lighter models, hence its weight. Perfect for maintenance, less ideal for explosives.

General comfort

Even if this is a general rule, it may apply a little more to this LeBron 19: you need to take the time to “make” the pair. The inner lining can be awkward at first. Once planted and well made, comfort is a must, there is an impression of “grown” and comfort.

“Flyware” cables help maintain the entire foot, and single air bubbles obviously affect them. On the other hand, “side” bubbles are another gadget.

The advantage of this model is that it can respond to the effects of templates like LeBron James. The package is placed on the sole, with a layer of comfort on the large air bubbles. The Hill has a dual Air Max unit, with a full forehead zoom air unit. Enough to offer the most pleasing cushioning.

Whether the ankle or the front of the foot, the energy return is quite exceptional.

Rating: 9/10


The outsole coating provides good grip to the ground and responds to basic support. Large air bubbles, however, give this feeling of height which can limit the quality of the side supports.

The assembly also remains rigid and rather heavy. The LeBron 19 is obviously not the goal of the small build, and this is undoubtedly its main flaw because it limits its goal.

Support and stability

Another strong point, so much so that it would seem almost too tight at first. The support is strong and reassuring on the whole leg, with a stiff top and so on, along with the flywire wire as well as the lateral reinforcement of the lightweight plastic, which reinforces the “reassuring” side of this model when lacing.

It also gives very good stability, the sides have equally generous sole, so the overall comfort is really optimal.

Rating: 9/10

End and lifetime

A two-layer top with a transparent part of a mesh covering cover. At the level of the collar is a rather real finish that rises quite high in the form of a dot. The final touch added to the king’s logo, his signature, the lion and several commas ending. Fake tongues are accompanied by different messages according to the theme and color.

For the lifetime, there is no doubt about the quality and durability of the rod. With regard to the sole and resistance of air bubbles over time, it is more difficult to confirm. We can rely on Nike to do most of the work at this point, even if everything depends on the surface and the usage of each.

Rating: 8.5 / 10


LeBron 19 can’t dream of a better springboard than a super Hollywood production with LeBron James as the lead actor. At this point, we finally got the idea that neither the movie nor the pair found their audience.

The context associated with the Covid-19 epidemic has certainly had a major impact on its distribution around the world. However, at the King’s feet, in the NBA or even in Europe, we’ve seen little of the LeBron 19 on the court.

The 19th signature shoe from LeBron James was a lucky one, though, because it has many advantages even though it is not for all sizes, including an adaptation based on record weight and stability and verticality. Despite all that, LeBron 19 remains a safe bet in its division.
