The LeBron 11 is the next evolution in LeBron James’ footwear line, with the striking model meant to sustain the incredible level of play that he’s been putting in for the past couple of years. The pair manages to set itself apart from King James’ most recent signature models via both its shorter build and the arrangement of the various Nike technologies used – among them Hyperposite, Dynamic Flywire, and Full Length Zoom Air. There’s a lot to review in this masterpiece of a design, which speaks directly to the heyday of Posite and the Alpha Project in the early 2000’s, which is where designer Jason Petrie got his start with the brand. Continue on for a detailed look at the new LeBron 11, one featuring the October 12th “Parachute Gold” colorway, that zooms in on each of these facets of the upcoming design.

It's funny seeing comments about the price jump and how they blame lebron for it it's not lebron he doesn't sell his sig shoe himself. nike makes the prices not the athlete but lebrons prices have always been the same price as nike air maxes that year fyi EVERY NIKE SIGNATURE MODEL INCREASES IN PRICE THE FOLLOWING YEAR idk why people acting brand new like its just lebron smh
so he upped his brand to $200, this nigga tryna rape....not that a like the model anyway, but damn least Kobe and KD keep there shyt cheap. And JB aint even at the 200 price mark yet....smh
I like elements of this shoe but this color-way is trash. The sock liner is the best part of this color-way. I hope the lows are a better design.
Seem like these will only look good up to a 10.5. But will see and I hope people stop buying up general release lebrons $200 is too much.
Attention hype hoes y'all got a release to pursue now. When he falls short of greatness everyons collection will be sold the fuck off.
Damn this colorway combined with the design is tough. Definitely dig these more than the Heat Away cw. Can't wait to see a "stealth" or "blackout" cw. This design is dope as long as it's given a colorway that plays well with it. The right colorway sets the shoe off while the wrong one will make it look like trash. Can't wait for the ID options.
These are nice, sure they look a little futuristic or whatever but Nike seems to have made this shoe more for basketball and not for fashion/looks. I'll be on the lookout for these seems like a good shoe to hoop in especially with that full length zoom insole.
People forget that it's a basektball shoe first not ''omg what's gonna make me look the coolest on IG''
It doesn't matter what a shoe looks like. You hype beasts make these shoe companies millions and billions of dollars. THE IS AVERAGE. PRICE TAG TOO EXPENSIVE.
not sure what everyone's hating on these are his best looking shoes in ages the x's were ok but they were really ugly before that the IV's are still the best but these are awesome even in this golden parachute cw
Y'all can keep your Iron Man shoes. I'm only wearing them if they make me jump higher and run faster. I don't want to look like a robot, I'm a human. 2013 ball shoes are such a flop, can't wait until 2014...!
I don't know what there is to hate on. These are dope. Look like a transformer on ya feet. My only problem is that I want to pay top dollar for the best Nike can offer and that's the elite version. Why would I pay full price for a second tier shoe?
even though people dont like the shoe its still an innovation for basketball performance other wise and makes playing actual basketball not get lost in the casual aspect of sneakers and why people mostly buy lebrons
@kshaun12 considering that theres a lot of shoe "technology" going into these its going to be pricey, I for one don't care about it but im going buy it to rock cause I like the shoe. And JB hasn't reached 200 yet cause the materials that are being used to make JB are horrible and cheap (but I still buy'em cause I like some of them"
@deadpool92 Word. This shoe is an iconic design with technology that will only trickle down to other designs. Just like people thought the Foams were ugly back in the 90s, they'll be craving this shoe in twenty years' time and respecting it for the work of art it is.
@SneakersOtoole84 Somebody got a towel for this guy to cry into?
@JustSoChill wait til they do a south beach or all star cw they'll be ''growing on them'' then
@JFresh_136 ok bye.
@baby gerald Stop typing and go save 200$ for the clown shoe!
