Nike Basketball’s “Elite” concept was thoroughly detailed by Nike designer Leo Chang during our interview two weeks ago. It truly must be a designer’s dream to go all out on a sneaker, so designer Brett Golliff created some “Elite”-style renderings of some of the most memorable Nike Basketball silhouettes in history that have had their share of Playoff battles. If you ever wondered what the Air Jordan XI, Nike Shox Stunner, or Nike Air Max Penny 1 looked like with a completely beefed up “Elite” exterior, Brett’s got ten models for you to ponder at below. Do you think Nike will ever go “Elite” with their Retro models? Point out your favorite and let us know your thoughts on this concept below.

These are some great renderings.  I'm particularly impressed by the Hyperflight-- a shoe that I've hated since its birth.  This design is so much better than the original.  

And I've gotta agree with caseyflinders re the Air More Uptempos-- another shoe I never really warmed to.  It looks incredible in this Elite model.

If they would release those Jordan Xl elites they'll run a little over $300.

Some of these look really nice and some of these look awful. Wonder what a Foamposite Elite of Flightposite Elite would look like

Brett is a fucking spectacular designer. Check out his website and coroflot. He has some awesome concepts (my favorite is his Kobe IX Elite concept).
