The Nike LEBRON 11 T-Rex colorway takes the king of the prehistoric world to smaller feet. Made exclusively for young athletes, the new colorway of the LEBRON 11 is inspired by one of the fiercest animals to have ever lived, the Tyrannosaurus Rex.
The volt color on the swoosh and outsole represent a T-Rex’s glowing eyes, while the two shades of green and textured upper draws inspiration from a T-Rex’s scaly skin. The pink around the collar represents the dinosaur’s mouth.
The LEBRON 11 T-Rex Crib Booty is made for the crucial early years of movement; with a Velcro® collar strap and soft synthetic bottom that’s patterned with a design screen that mimics the full-size version’s sole. Ultra light, with easy entry and a snug fit, it’s easy to take off and put on.
The LEBRON 11 T-Rex Toddler Size is engineered for those who are learning to walk and run. The collar Velcro® strap provides the lockdown, with a flex groove outsole for lightweight cushioning and durability. A lightweight rand provides a protective feel, while the welded collar and mesh is both durable and breathable.
The LEBRON 11 T-Rex Pre School is made for a variety of activity. The shoe features a welded upper and outsole with strategically placed flex grooves on the outsole for lightweight durability and enhanced flexibility. A rubber midfoot shank means extra support and the lightweight rand adds a protective, premium feel.
The LEBRON 11 T-Rex Grade School was made with court play in mind. The articulated Hyperposite construction is light and durable, with a full sandwich mesh inner sleeve for sock-like comfort. A Lunarlon insert ensures springy responsiveness, while a lateral outrigger supports during side-to-side motion. The asymmetrical collar fits lower on the ankle for a more supportive feel.
The LEBRON 11 T-Rex colorway exclusively for young athletes will be available globally at select retail locations and nike.com beginning Nov. 29.
