Nike Lebron 17 Low Review

Pros:
Great traction even on dusty courts
Very good impact protection
Cons:
Stiff upper materials
Really hard to put on

Performance of the Nike Lebron 17 Low:

The Lebron 17 Low departs significantly from the design of the original Lebron 17. But is it for the better? The traction pattern remains largely unchanged but has additional ridges on the rubber which give you a little bit of added grip. The Air Max cushioning in the heel is a little firmer and the React foam in the forefoot is also less bouncy than the original Zoom unit. The upper material was changed from Battleknit to a pretty firm and not super premium-feeling Mesh. Overall, the Lebon 17 Low is a solid performer but can't quite reach the performance of the high version.

$170 is a steep price but I don't think you will be disappointed if you pick up the Lebron 17 Low.

The traction was really good and the cushioning was pretty damn nice. Overall, the Lebron 17 Low is a solid performer but probably not worth $170, especially considering the cheap upper materials.

The Nike LeBron 17 Low is an impressive performing sneaker. The traction is excellent, and the materials do a good job of helping you feel supportive. The cushion is not as plush as the regular LeBron 17, but they do offer more stability.

Shoes were alright, it's just that FIT. It felt like my feet were bleeding. if you have even regular sized feet, don’t even try it on!! everything else was good. The shoe was very hard to get on, and laces felt like I wasn’t secure. overall ok hoop shoe if you want to get your foot squished like a stress ball.

The traction was pretty good on clean courts and you will need to wipe only occasionally on dusty courts.

I was really impressed! You stop on a dime on lateral cuts and linear movements and the rubber picks up almost no dust.

There is more tread around the forefoot area of the shoe. It grips nicely and gets better the more you play in them.

The giant Air Max unit in the heel feels a little firmer compared to the Lebron 17 High but still provides you with a lot of impact protection. The React in the forefoot is underwhelming and feels just like generic foam.

The Air Max cushioning in the heel and the React foam in the forefoot provide you with crazy good impact protection but very little court feel.

The cushion is a lot stiffer compared to the regular LeBron 17. This offers more stability. The forefoot is also fairly bouncy after breaking them in.

Your heel is locked down and you have no side-to-side movement on the footbed.

The upper materials are super supportive and provide great containment. The super-soft cushioning is pretty high-off-the-ground and feels a little unstable in the heel.

It's a very supportive sneaker. The leather that wraps around the edge helps with lateral support and keeps your foot contained on the foot bed.

This is probably the hardest shoe to put on I've ever tested. I felt a little pinching pain on the lateral side of the forefoot. Other than that, the fit is really tight and your feet are very well-contained.

The shoe fits well, but it can get pretty snug in the forefoot area.
