Summary of 2 Expert Reviews:

The Lebron Witness 4 costs only half of what the Lebron 17 costs. But does this price difference show in the performance? The traction in the forefoot performed well but one reviewer felt the heel sliding out a lot on lateral cuts. The cushioning is much firmer compared to the Lebron 17 but you still get some nice compression in the heel and a little bit of bounce from the Zoom unit in the forefoot. The materials show the biggest difference to the Lebron 17: the Mesh upper is flimsy and cheap-looking but it gets the job done. For $100, the Lebron Witness 4 is a solid performer but, even at this price, there are better shoes out there.

The Lebron Witness 4 is a very solid performer - especially for $100. If the traction was a little better, this would be a complete banger!

For a $100 you get a decent performer, but even at this price range there are much better shoes out there. I didn't like the cushioning and had some issues with the traction - I can't really recommend these.

Traction of the Nike Lebron Witness 4:

8.0
The Sole Brothers
The black outsole doesn't bite crazy hard and picks up some dust. Overall the traction is not amazing but definitely doable.

The traction in the forefoot was just fine. When planting the whole foot on lateral cuts I felt the heel sliding out at times.

Cushion of the Nike Lebron Witness 4:

The Sole Brothers
Heel-to-toe transition is pretty smooth, the Phylon in the heel has a nice compression and the Zoom unit in the forefoot is pretty bouncy.

The foam in the heel is pretty stiff and I couldn't feel the Zoom units in the forefoot like I did in the Lebron 17.

The upper is made from a pretty crappy-looking Mesh material. Comfort and on-foot performance is solid

The materials are definitely not premium and feel cheapish in-hand. But the materials get the job done - I didn't have any issues on-foot.

The one-bootie upper might make it difficult for wide-footers to get into the shoe and I experienced a little bit of dead space in the toe box. Other than that, the fit was solid.

As a slightly wide-footer the shoe fit very snug which caused some pinching pain.
