After eight years without winning a championship, LeBron James realized his dream last season when the Miami Heat prevailed over the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA Finals. This weekend, LeBron will embark on a journey to a second ring in an all-new variation of his tenth signature shoe, the Nike LeBron X PS Elite+.
The LeBron X PS Elite+ enhances power through a carbon fiber-reinforced mid-foot and Kevlar coated Flywire. Consistent lockdown and light, yet powerful lateral stability gives LeBron the speed and power to take flight. Kevlar aramid laces help players resist stretch. An articulated foam tongue provides impact protection and reduces lace pressure.
For players who like to see how they measure up, the LeBron X PS Elite+ is equipped with Nike+ technology, allowing you to track your performance and sync through a mobile device.
Symbolic of the call to championship greatness, the launch colorway of the LeBron X PS Elite+ is decked out in white and black with trophy-inspired gold accents.
Before the Heat host Milwaukee tomorrow afternoon, you can pick up LeBron’s playoff Nike basketball shoes here today.
