The Nike Zoom LeBron 6 is a shoe that features a few new and different features that help make this shoe an all-around favorite for many. This review focuses on the less well-known features of the shoe that will help make it a great choice for many people. These features include a slightly smaller insole, a taped seam that makes the shoe feel smoother, a darker midsole for a more defined look, and an extra high-tech cushion in the footbeds. All of these features will be discussed in detail to help the reader determine if these are features that they would like to use on their own shoes or if they are features that they will need to purchase a shoe with. Overall, the shoe appears to be a great buy but does have a few shortcomings.
The insole is the first thing that should stand out when basketball shoes are seen. While this feature can cause many people to look past the rest of the shoe, it is the main feature that will have the biggest impact on how much the shoe feels. While it looks much smaller than other insole types, it is actually one of the largest in the industry. This means that the shoe will be easier to slip on and off and also easier to keep comfortable for long periods of time. This also means that the shoe is a good choice for those who do not want the large appearance of many insole types.
The other lesser-used feature on the Nike Zoom LeBron 6 is the taped seam. While the seam is usually made out of leather and looks nice, the shoe is too wide for it to be used properly. Instead, a cheaper rubber-type seam is used which does not blend in well with the shoe. As a result, this feature tends to be a favorite of many users but does not end up being a must-have.
