As LeBron James gears up for his third championship run, he'll wear the new Nike LeBron 13 Elite, an evolved version of his most recent signature shoe. Key technical upgrades include a carbon fiber shank, full-length bootie and two additional hexagonal Zoom Air-sole units on each shoe, as well as a durable cage upper built with Kurim, an extremely pliable skin-like material that moves with each stride. These technologies work together to deliver a trio of key benefits: dynamic lockdown , optimal stability and articulated, responsive cushioning. 

An introductory red colorway of the Nike 13 Elite launches April 14 at and select Nike basketball retailers. A white colorways follows on May 5 and black on May 26.
