The Armory Slate colorway has become synonymous with the upcoming Nike LeBron XI and today we see it once again, this time in on-foot images so you can have a good idea of the impression you’ll create when you get your hands on a pair. Against the dark, almost stealthy Armorposite-equipped upper the soft blue accents give this shoe much of its identity, and as paired with red hits on the tongue and Dynamic Flywire, they have a slight N7 lean. Check out more after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for all the LeBron 11 release dates.
Is it just me or my monitor that the color of the lining, outsole, and trim around the swoosh is much more of a mint/light green than light blue? Come on, SN.
The only one single thing I would change on this shoe is the two small windows/holes in the armorposite where you can see the flyknit. To me, it disrupts the pattern just a little. Maybe I'm just being picky. Either way, I loved this CW when the images were first leaked and they look damn good on feet. The contrast of textures between the armorposite and rest of the upper (hyperfuse?) is fantastic. I love the offset swoosh, ala the ndstrukt. Can't wait for them to drop. Must cop for me, this colorway at least.
Brilliant. I've been sold on these from the start and these shots don't diminish my desire to cop these as fast as I possibly can.
i agree with BThomas1 these are going to start looking even better i believe when the slew of usual Lebron colorways come in...
these look nice..wanna see some heat cw's..can nike please show a sample of the kbix already..damn!!! come nike lets get it going..i get the bron drops in nov but come on a sneak peak cant be out of the question. good looks on the bron xi thou! foams..this should be pricey!
i knew these had potential. i wanted to see other angle photos, but SN will bombard us later on with that...lol
mmmmmmmmm.... can't wait!!! I'm done with 10's. Said these were fire from the jump. For all those that said how wack they were for months etc... come on in and tell us all about how many you will be copping lmfao
@Born2fly depends if these are nike plus or not the regular lebron 11s are going to be 200 most likely the enabled and sports pack will have a 20 dollar increase as well
