How Nike Basketball Made The 2014 Elite Series Its Best Ever

nike basketball elite 2014 collection How Nike Basketball Made The 2014 Elite Series Its Best Ever

You don’t need to go much farther than Nike to get a straightforward example of what the essence of evolution is. Year after year, the designers at the Swoosh label continue to bring forward some of the most advanced basketball footwear designs, and the moment its primary brand competitors even begin to catch on what’s unfolding before the eyes of the consumers, Nike disrupts us (pleasantly) with something completely next-level. In 2012, Nike Basketball introduced the Elite Collection of footwear; in a landscape already dominated by the Beaverton brand, the debut of Elite sent the message that only from within could a better basketball sneaker be produced. With that said, the 2014 Elite Collection is a no-holds-barred design and innovation smorgasbord that will allow LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Kobe Bryant to live out their sneaker fantasies. To put it briefly – LeBron, KD, and Kobe asked for it and Nike delivered, and in two days we’ll get to experience the fun for ourselves.

The Nike LeBron 11 Elite Was Inspired By The Lamborghini Egoista

You’ve seen the shoe already – but what was it inspired by? That would be the one-of-one Lamborghini Egoista, which, according to the supercar’s designer Walter de Silva, represents “hedonism taken to the extreme”. The transfer of car to sneaker has been a method employed by many a designer, but with the shiny TPU add-ons on the upper, the grey-based exterior on the upcoming “Team” release, and overall sporty look of the shoe, the translation seems more and more apparent now that we’ve revealed this bit of insider info. With that said, the LeBron 11 Elite, priced at $275, is far more affordable than the car, which goes for several millions. Your thoughts on this snippet of design inspiration? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more on the LeBron 11 Elite and the entire Elite Collection (hint: we’ve got something for you later tonight).

The multi-layered nature of the Nike KD 6 Elite, inspired by the transparent structure of KD’s favorite watches, makes for a rather unique color-blocking scheme. With so many visible layers, Nike needed to test out just how these various parts would look with different applied tones. Seen here is a Color Test sample, which features the KD 6 Elite silhouette in a variety of colors. This shoe will never release, but check out the details below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more in-depth exploration of the Nike Basketball Elite Series later tonight.

It looks like the tradition of 4/20 Nike SB releases will be resurrected this year with the “Hacky Sack Pack”. The Nike SB Zoom Stefan Janoski, Nike SB Eric Koston SE, and the Nike SB Project BA (Not pictured) will each get some embroidered uppers that look like they reference to that hippie sport. It’s worth mentioning that there’s a Nike SB Dunk Low also on the way that shares the same color designation, so we might be getting a “Hacky Sack” Nike SB Dunk as well. Continue reading to see the other pair and tell us in the comments if you’re excited for these April 19th releases.
