Zoom LeBron VI Rendering - The shoe takes its inspiration from the king of the jungle, the lion. The shapes on the upper are inspired by lion's claws, and the outsole teeth are inspired by the teeth on a lion. The midfoot strap is designed to resemble a lion's mane.The shoe uses an air-transfer system I designed. The gas ("air") from the zoom unit in the insole is transfered via tubes into an ankle airbag during an ankle inversion, bringing the foot lower for more stability and preventing the ankle from further inverting.
