Nike Basketball ELITE Series 2.0 : Superhero Pack

words // Brandon Richard

Inspired by the rare combination of unearthly abilities and impenetrable gear superheroes possess, Nike Basketball introduces the ELITE Series 2.0 for LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant.

The ELITE Series 2.0 fuses lightweight construction, enhances fit and dynamic protection. Kevlar aramid, an advanced material typically used in body armor, provides a locked-down, protective fit with its incredible high tensile strength-to-weight ratio. Carbon fiber offers lightweight resilient strength, while articulated foam provides impact protection and a comfortable fit.

Nike’s ELITE Series 2.0 is supplemented with superpower storylines for LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant.

Forged by time, heat and pressure, the diamond inspires LeBron James’s tenth signature shoe. His elite version drafts off the rare Carbonado diamond, a virtually indestructible stone said to derive from an ancient supernova, the most explosive force in the universe. The shoe’s bright citrus colorway and graphic collar lining capture James’s unstoppable power.

Kobe Bryant often showcases the adept speed and precision of his on-court alter ego, the Black Mamba. The Kobe 8 System Elite is inspired by the lethal green pit viper snake and the x-ray vision emitted by its heat-sensing eyes. Bryant stays three steps ahead of his opponent with his keen vision. The Kobe 8 System Elite highlights Bryant’s power of deceptive speed with a poison green colorway and x-ray vision graphic on the collar lining.

Capturing Kevin Durant’s thunderous power of ultimate control, the new low KD V Elite debuts in a volt colorway, illuminated by the sharp glow of lightning bolts. The design speaks to Durant’s versatility, shooting accuracy and finely-tuned court vision.

All three Nike ELITE Series 2.0 basketball shoes are available here today.

words // Brandon Richard

As the Oklahoma City Thunder and Kevin Durant begin the long road back to the NBA Finals this weekend, Nike Basketball introduces the KD V Elite+, the low cut, playoff ready version of Durant’s signature shoe.

The re-engineered low-top offers a full range of motion with enhanced technical design elements. A carbon fiber heel counter and shank provides lightweight stability for quick cuts. Dynamic Flywire reinforced with Kevlar aramid increases stability and lockdown. An articulated foam tongue helps brace for impact and minimizes lace pressure. Caged Nike Zoom in the heel provides responsive cushioning and stability.

Reflecting the moment that matters most to elite athletes, the gold-accented white colorway draws inspiration from the championship trophy. Elite Series 2.0+ sneakers are enabled with Nike+ Basketball technology, which provides athletes with the ability to track performance and sync through mobile devices.

Before the Thunder start their playoff run against Houston tomorrow, you can pick up KD’s new elite Nike Basketball shoes here today.
