LeBron celebrated his 29th birthday yesterday by taking a trip to Denver, Colorado to square off against the Nuggets. And while it’s scary to think that the King still has well over a decade of competitive basketball left in him (he recently passed both Gary Payton and Larry Bird on the All-Time scoring list) it’s nice knowing that we will continue to get looks at LBJ and his player exclusives well into the future. As for last night, he laced up a brand new pair of the Nike LeBron 11 in a black and red scheme that’s fairly similar to his “Away” version only this time the silhouette sported red laces, featuring that metallic silver Swoosh and LBJ branding on the tongue. And what’s a birthday celebration without a win? Stick with us after the click for a full rundown of LeBron’s latest and stay tuned for all our NBA Feet recaps headed into 2014.
@sneakernews his best shoe
@sneakernews ugly af 11s not his best shoe
Notice the toebox isn't the only difference between the GR pairs, the collar is also raised higher on the the heel to where it isn't asymmetrical like the GRs
@kick_game_major lmao..not feeling 11s
@Josiah oh true i didn't notice that
@alex458 yea, its pretty apparent. wonder if the change will make it to the consumer pairs?
@kicks67 @alex458 Consumer pairs are manufactured months ahead of release. So probably not. Although I'm not sure if that applies to NikeiD pairs. Just have to buy a half a size bigger to minimize the toe box issues if any depending on how if feels on your foot. The Lebrons have been kinda snug since the 9 model to me so this is really nothing new.
@adadalives @kicks67 @alex458 I see. that makes sense maybe a toe box option on ID's. Would be koo. Iv'e had at least one pair of brons since the II's and imo they all have run a little small. I always go 1/2 size up, even on my Id IX's. Scared of getting XI Id because of the issues with the toe box.
