Here is a first look at the Nike LeBron 11 “Terracotta Warrior”, presented officially by Nike, Inc. This amazing never-before-seen colorway is confirmed to be this year’s take on the introductory “China” theme – a concept that Nike has consistently honed in on at the launch of each new LeBron signature sneaker release. The sneakers get their graphic laden upper from the Terracotta Warrior Exhibition in Qin Shi Huang, a national treasure that King James himself visited back in 2011; the colorway is designed with neutral stone colors with pop colors of purple, teal, and red to reflect the original paint-work on these historic artifacts. The special design on the shank is drawn from the Bronze Age Art – the era in which the Terracotta Warriors were crafted. As is usually the case with these sorts of colorways, the Nike LeBron 11 “Terracotta Warrior” will launch first in China on October 1st, with a global release to follow on November 27th. Continue reading for detailed images on the sneaker and let us know if you’re feeling this new LeBron 11 colorway.
Nike LeBron 11 “Terracotta Warrior”
So far every color of these that are dropn are straight FIRE! Nike is going to be getting a lot of my$ over the next few months. The parachute golds are unique and amazing. The gamma b blues are a must have, and these ones are just straight fire! They break the mold of standard colors that usually release. Haven't even mentioned the red heat color. Looks like Nike is going to be gettin minimum a G outa me this year. The bamboo KDs are a must have also. Jeez I better start setting aside my money now. There goes the tattoos I was planning on getting to finish up my sleeve. The tats can wait, these cannot. Better not sleep on these. The quality is lookin well worth the $200. Breaking pockets!
These are dis yrs China Edition.... Could of been better in my opinion... Wanna see da Xmas editions tho
they are both good brands of shoes, jordan and lebron, sales dont matter since u can find both of em at outlet stores on clearence but in the less admirable models. Everyone has their own opinnio but mine is tha the leborn are higher quality and durable, my lebron graffitis look ds and i have used em a lot while my 2012 bred 4s are not doing so well but i used em less.
On sales the Lebron has outsold the new Jordans but on performance and material the Lebrons are still a bit behind. The XX8s are by far the best performance shoe and it isn't even close maybe the new Superfly 2s. By the looks of these the performance still won't come close.
@trillauptop There's no way you DON'T work 4 nike. Or ur actually just sum young lebron fanatic punk. FOH. Are NEW lebrons better than NEW jays - OF COURSE. But all this "lebrons surpassing jordans" shit needs to stop immediately. If u r still just THAT hard headed, try matching each of the first 11 lebrons up with the 1st 11 jordans - and compare which did the most for the culture. FOH
i've been wearing jordans since 1991 & mj is my all time favorite athlete but i gotta admit that lebrons have surpassed Jordan brand. JB hasn't released a decent looking shoe in years. the only thing keeping me interested in JB are the retros and even the retros are starting to get played out. my CDP retro 11's aren't even head turners anymore cuz they are so common & they get re-released so often. kids that aren't even old enough to remember jordan are obsessed with his shoes. the only way to break necks wearing jordan's is if i break out doernbechers or bin 23. if u compare new lebrons compared to new jordans, lebron is killing jordan. thats probably why JB relies so heavily on retros. anyway, i will be copping at least 1 or 2 different' color ways of the lebron XI. jordans will always have a place in my collection cuz i grew on them & they are classics but its lebrons time now
I think the silhouette is pretty dope, but they doing WAY too much here. Then again, when it's your shoe, you can do whatever you want.
Patterns and prints equal a lot hype usually today for kicks, I see it with these, but even if I was to buy a pair of LBJ 11s . I can only see myself improving my already amazing jump shot in them lol No casual wear for me in them.
Fire! Nike make-up team has LeBron looking younger for this photo shoot... anyway this China edition will be a sellout just like the rest! For all the folks who clowned and talked down on the LeBron xi, please don't comment! Great colorway loving the stone look with purple and teal to make it pop! The LeBron xi will go down in history because of the technology and performance... oh yeah this will be his first and only 3-peat shoe!
I knew this would happen. They come out with a sick new colorway that makes everyone want it. Who doesnt like grey and purple?
are these going to be an instant sellout because they're sitting in lebron's hands? anyway i don't like them
@ItaughtYeezy uhhhhhhh fuck wheres the napkins
@DocBill1 the 28s dont really count those are like 280 retail while lebrons are 200(now) and lowere prior and to my knowlede the xx8 dont have nike+ and cannot friggin connect to ur phone
@trillauptop going to have to respectfully disagree. the jordan 28's are not bad at all, and where im from they sold out at 250 dollar price point. Like em or not new Jordans still sell and the man is 50 years old and LJ is still in the NBA, 4xMVP, 2xdefending champ, he suppose to have a hot shoe.
@Mamb there's been nothing but love for the lebron xi since day 1, this shoe has been accepted unlike the 9 and 10.
@saralee it has his damn name on it. It would be wrong if he didn't want to hold em
@saralee ofcourse this shoe will sit in lebron's hand.its his signature for god sake
Nobody needs nike plus or to connect your shoes to your phone that's why the LeBron 11 won't have it
@HeartKickMicks and an awful one at that.
