With the end of the NBA’s regular season approaching, Nike Basketball introduces its Elite Series for the playoffs. The series features the signature models of LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant, revamped with advanced construction and athlete insights. In the end, we’re left with what Nike is calling its most advanced trio of signature sneakers.
The Elite Series gets underway this weekend with the Team Collection, team versions of each player’s shoe in hyperized hues. For LeBron, it marks the launch of the Nike LeBron 11 Elite.
Tailored to James’ powerful game, the LeBron 11 Elite is lightweight and strong. An evolution of the standard LeBron 11, the LeBron 11 Elite features a lower cut and an articulated external cage to keep The King contained. Hyperposite protection and Dynamic Flywire in the upper work with Lunarlon and a Zoom unit in the midsole to maximize performance.
LeBron’s ‘Team Collection’ Elite 11 arrives in varying grey tones with Miami Heat-inspired crimson and black accents.
