The Nike LeBron 11 Elite Was Inspired By The Lamborghini Egoista

April 10th, 2014 by | 24 comments

lamborghini egoista nike lebron 11 elite 2 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).

nike lebron 11 elite gold release date 0 Nike LeBron 11 Elite Gold   Release Date

The LeBron 11 Elite “Gold” will release on June 6th, 2014. That timing is no accident of course – the 2014 NBA Finals are currently scheduled to begin on the day prior, and there’s a pretty decent chance that King James will find himself in that series once again. His pair from the Nike Basketball Elite “Gold Collection” is sort of the black sheep thanks to that black base that stands in contrast to the lighter Kobes and KDs from the series. See the sneakers again after the click and stay tuned to Sneaker News for some exclusive insights on the Elite Series from Nike Basketball.

lebron 8 south beach significance 6 We Were All Witnesses: Why The South Beach Is The Greatest Nike LeBron in History

After a couple of weeks of voting, the results are in for the Sneaker News March Madness Nike LeBron Tournament. LeBron’s signature line taking its place in our annual tourney is a sign of his progression and how his signature line has ascended to the premier spot in basketball performance. This year’s bracket followed the original ultimate grail competition, two years focusing on different Air Jordan eras and last year’s Foamposite lineup. The fact that any man other than Michael could fill four regions by himself is further evidence of the King’s status.

Sneaker News March Madness Nike LeBron Tournament – Champion Unveiled

April 9th, 2014 by | 39 comments

sn lebron madness champ announced summary Sneaker News March Madness Nike LeBron Tournament   Champion Unveiled

Thirty-two hopeful Nike LeBrons were hand-selected to take part in our Sneaker News March Madness Nike LeBron Tournament, and after weeks of voting, we’ve finally narrowed it down to one true champion. It wasn’t much of a surprise that the earlier models were the ones to exit early, because the Nike LeBron signature line didn’t take off until the era of Jason Petrie and Miami. As the field was narrowed down to sixteen, eight, four, and two, it was clear that the golden era of King James’ sneaker history is certainly post-Decision, and the final match-up was a perfect representation of this change. The LeBron 10 Cork, which signified LeBron’s greatest achievement as a Miami Heat, and the LeBron 8 South Beach, which served as a turning point in LeBron’s career, went head to head in the Final round, but only one can be called the winner. Before we reveal the victor, we’d like to thank all of our fans that participated during every round of voting, and your involvement is the sole reason why we can crown this sneaker as the King of LeBrons. Are you ready? The Sneaker News March Madness Nike LeBron Tournament Champion is…

nike basketball elite gold Nike Basketall Elite Series 2014 Gold Collection

Ever since Nike Basketball introduced its Elite series of post-season models, gold has been part of the equation. Instead of being the first pairs to the party this year, the “Gold Collection” hops in line at a later point – they’ll be releasing on June 6th, 2014. As you can see, the KD 6 Elite Gold and the Kobe 9 Elite Gold end up with a white base while the LeBron 11 Elite Gold has sort of an “Away” feel due to the darker tones. Take a look at all three after the break and tell us in the comments which of these Nike Basketball Elite series pairs, which will be the last of this year’s Elites barring any sort of Championship pairs, you’re feeling the most.
