LeBron James is one of the most iconic and influential professional athletes of all-time, matching his on-court success with his off-court eclectic portfolio of business and philanthropic ventures. As he enters his fifteenth NBA season, there are challenges that await him as he looks to reach his eighth straight NBA Finals and win his fourth overall championship, but helping him in his quest is his brand new signature shoe – the LeBron 15.

The Nike LeBron 15, which features Flyknit and Max/Zoom combo Air, has been positively received thus far. We already know of the “Ashes” and “Ghost” colorway, while an off-the-court version with embroidered detailing flexes the shoe’s lifestyle capability. That’s been the identity for most of the Nike LeBron signature series as they’ve been high performers on the court and hot items off it.

During his tour in Asia, LeBron James sat down with Hypebeast to discuss basketball, music, fashion, and more. In this interview, he listed his favorite Nike LeBrons to play basketball in, and his favorite Nike shoes to wear casually. Is his list surprising?
