Nike Suggests You “Remove Before Flight” on the LeBron 11 Elite
Remember when the Air Jordan 17 asked you to peel off that bit of plastic around the back end? The Nike LeBron 11 Elite, LeBron James’ latest post-season sneaker, gets a little bit more creative with that prompt. As shown here, the covering reads “Remove Before Flight” – a line that we’ve actually seen a handful of times prior on Nike releases during the 2012 “Galaxy” All-Star pack. Continue reading for further glimpses of the upcoming release and then tell us in the comments if you’ll be purchasing a pair of these new LeBrons.

been feeling the red ones since first sight but these elites look funny sometimes to me. The toe box length/ shape turns me off....(pawz) With that price tag i guess ill have plenty of chances to look before i buy.
Nice, but for 275??? No way. If people keep buying I don't wanna know the price of, say the LeBron 15 elites.
i like the touch but still hate both of these colorways. as soon as a black/gold colorway releases i'm sold.
Other things I could do with $275...
Go see every good movie that releases for over 2 years.
Buy a plane ticket to almost anywhere in the country.
Buy 4 Xbox one/PS4 games.
Buy 2 months worth of gas.
Pay Utilities for 2 months.
Buy 3 pairs of Stan Smiths.
Buy over a months worth of groceries.
Not saying that I would never buy them. But the way my priorities are set up...lol
....and just like that, the hype explodes. these just went from having most people saying "not feelin em" to "must cop." brilliant move, nike. *golf*clap*
I would REALLY like to get those superhero lebron 11 elites but for 275, you got to be kidding me. Nike is fucking nuts.
Wow at first i thought it was telling everyone to take off the shoe before flight.... i was thinking wow even nike thinks this shoe is rubish.... i was like wow MJ must have had a hand in that lable, "take off this ugly shoe and put on some real J'z before flight.
WTF i would have just put peel off first.... Silver is a bad color to start with, but really it cant get any more ugly.
We ain't NEVER gonna learn! If you paid attention the prices for these shoes keep going up and up and up and will continue to go up and up and up as long as they keep selling out in seconds. I reached my limit. After spending several thousand in 2013 I just can't do it anymore especially when the quality keeps going down, down, down. Just my personal opinion, don't hate!
im going to leave it on there lol im guessing whatever that is it scratches easily when playing. i know its wishful thinking because it will probably make the shoe heavier but im hoping it at least has some metal properties with plastic and not just full on plastic like on the regular kobe 8s heal clip, those shits busted on my friends after awhile.
Everyone didn't ditch the shoe. LeBron is the only one who stopped wearing the version 1 of the 11's and he still wear this version but not for long because they are for the post season not the regular season. It's called marketing. He doesn't have the same problem with this one like he did the first one's
Nah bro the LBJ 11 is worth 275 compared to a pair of j's you've missed by a quality stand point. When the last time a recent pair of LeBrons crease after minimum wear. These will last a long time.
@C_Jones06 people dont get it. nike didnt make these $275. WE DID. THE ZOMBIE CONSUMER who keeps coppin no matter wut nike charges. i hope these sit on shelves so nike will stop feelin theyself. this shoe cost nothing 2 make smh
Word that's why I'm waiting for a pair I really like. 275 I understand but damn could get a tshirt wit that to play ball in
Jordan shoes are made out of material that will crease easily, break apart easily, and not protect your foot (like the lebron 11s do, as I use them for basketball). Lebron 11s are also beyond easy to clean, and are far more comfortable than almost any jordan shoes I've seen. (Excluding the xx8)
People are so stupid now days. The quality is the most important part of a shoe and Jordan brand lack quality like no other. These kids just getting into the shoe game so they don't know no better smh
Yeah I do too, atleast most recent ones. People complain about the shoe and then say they want Js that have nothing on them compared to the 11s
@bodaga quality?.. nobody wears their Js anymore anyways; they make a brief appearance on instagram to make their new owner feel liked and important... then they go back in the box and into the closet where they sit for the next year.
