As the post-season draws closer so do LeBron’s playoff sneakers for this year, the Nike LeBron 11 Elite. The last couple of Elite entries for the Nike LeBron series have conditioned us to expect a slightly beefier build come the post-season but that isn’t really the case with this pair. The Hyperposite across the upper actually looks to be scaled back a little bit, partly to make way for a couple of shiny metallic supports that grip the upper. Stay with us after the break to see a full set of images on this familiar black and mango colorway and then check out the price to own them early from depeche23mode on eBay.
Jordans reailing for 180 tops. Lebrons retailing for minimum of 200. Yet, Lebrons being outsold like crazy by Jordans. Stop with these ugly shoes. X's were the best. No Lebrons for me until they make a better looking shoe. We'll see what the 12's look like. Too much money for this garbage.
I'm sorry but these look terrible. What's up with the upper of the shoe? All these sharp edges look so weird and now they even include some mirror-like materials!? I don't want to wear something that looks like it comes straight out of a science-fiction movie or something! huge fail imo...
I like the aesthetics but Nike needs to stop overusing the swoosh on Lebrons shoes. I would be a lot better if it wasn't there on the lateral side. If they come out in ID then I may get them.
Lebron you need to set nike straight...... This shoe is really ugly! Way to tech and it's just really trying to be to much things all in one package. When I see this I just think of the Lockheed F35 and F22...... All show and no go.... Simplicity is key in everything good in life and this really is not one. It's like looking at 3 shoes in on and it crazy if anyone buys this
@sneakernews those glossy panels are going to scratch very easy that's why they come with removable film they should of kept the CF
@sneakernews still not a fan. Better luck with the 12s
@sneakernews I like 'em a lot, just not at $270
@sneakernews what's the cost on the elites ??
@sneakernews watch them be like 270
With these better images, Maannnn.... They looking sick! Might have to go ahead and grab a pair of xi elites. I think Nike did an alright job with these
@boogieblind so you don't want to wear air mags.
@Mindovermatter That is what AF1s are for. Simplicity.
@richief757 @sneakernews I heard they're $300
@qtbigwatts look what jordan brand did, now where are they, their at the top. if jordan did it successfully, then lebron can.
yes true.... but if you are going to put out a tech shoe at least have form and function...... Wtf this shoe has all this cr-p on it and its all for nothing...... and the FlyWire is getting played out.... im waiting for the new CP3 joints to drop..... should be soon...... thats a shoe with simplicity and its still tech.
@devildog8774 omg bruh, u had me lol in the office when i read ur comment. literally XD
One of every two basketball shoes sold in the U.S. last year carried the Jordan brand. Factor in Nike-branded shoe sales into the mix, and Nike has a near monopoly in basketball with market share of 92%, according to SportsOneSource. Adidas (5.5% market share), Reebok (1.4%) and Under Armour(0.7%) are still searching for answers to Jordan.
