At the time of this writing, LeBron James is the best player in the NBA on best team in the NBA. The defending champs Miami Heat have now won 23 games in a row, representing the second longest win streak in NBA history. So even as LeBron has his sights on breaking the 33 consecutive-wins streak set by the 1971 – 1972 Los Angeles Lakers, there’s no doubt the thought of securing a second title for South Florida trumps all. To that end, Nike has prepared the elite version of LeBron’s tenth signature shoe for the postseason, featuring technical benefits engineered to deliver “unstoppable power.” Finished in a distinctive Hyper Blue and Bright Citrus colorway, the shoe takes inspiration from the rare Carbonado diamond, a virtually indestructible stone said to have originated from an ancient supernova. Building off the innovative advances already built into the LeBron X, Nike adds a number of performance enhancements to take the shoe to the next level: carbon fiber-reinforced mid-foot wings for excellent lateral stability, Kevlar aramid-reinforced Nike Flywire technology for consistent lock-down through the midfoot, stretch-resistant Kevlar aramid laces for a more consistent fit, and articulated foam tongue for impact protection and lace pressure minimization. Look for the Nike LeBron X P.S. Elite “Superhero” to launch at select Nike Basketball retailers on April 28th.
