In anticipation of the NBA playoffs, slated to begin April 19th, Nike Basketball has unveiled special Elite Gold editions for the Kobe 9, KD 6 and LeBron 11. The latter is built to the championship specifications of the league’s reigning MVP, featuring a strong and sleek build to reflect LeBron’s aggressive style of attack. The shoe’s black base is set off with gold detailing, while the long list of performance benefits include Hyperposite protection, dynamic Flywire, Lunarlon cushioning and a Nike Zoom unit in the midsole. They’re all featured in a silhouette with a lower cut and new articulated external cage, engineered to keep LeBron contained for the playoffs. Check out detailed looks below, and expect the kicks to drop June 6th.
