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.

It goes without saying that the Kobe 9 Elite “Gold” is the least likely show to end up with some post-season play given Kobe Bryant’s current status. But let’s not forget that there have been some other athletes across the league rocking with the Nike Kobe 9 Elite, so it’s certainly possible that other colorways will be there. The sneakers will release on June 6th with the others from the Nike Basketball Elite “Gold” collection. Get another quick angle on the pair after the break and tell us which of the various Kobe silhouettes floating around at the moment you’re feeling the most.

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.

The number of Kobe 9 models will increase with the upcoming Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low HTM release, a silhouette that was crafted in part by the likes of the legendary Hiroshi/Tinker/Mark team up. As you can see, the silhouette maintains the Flyknit touches that the Nike Kobe 9 Elite brought, but has a lower cut that’s much more in line with what the public has come to expect from a Nike Kobe sneaker. Continue reading for the full breakdown on the Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low and watch for the HTM version to launch exclusively at Nike Stadium Milano and Excelsior in Milan on April 8th (Look for more standard inline pairs of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low in the future as well).
