With the NBA Playoffs and Finals fast approaching, Nike and its Nike Basketball division just introduced its annual “Elite Series” editions. With design specifications created around the playing styles of LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant, the trio of signature footwear gets a range of improvements to become the Kobe 9 Elite, KD 6 Elite and this, the LeBron 11 Elite
While was never easy to create a shoe that addresses LeBron James’ very physical style of play, Nike Basketball’s 11th attempt is a step closer to that ultimate goal, one which combines lightness, support, responsiveness and ability to take a beating. In a semblance to the Miami Heat’s team color way, the Nike LeBron 11 Elite Team is an evolution to the LeBron 11 launched last October, with a lower cut and wholly new external cage for support. A combination of Hyperposite for lightweight protection, Flywire for quick reaction and cushioning from both Lunarlon and Nike Zoom air unit, the Nike LeBron 11 Elite Team will be something other players will reckon with on the basketball court going forward.
