It seems as if the LeBron’s next shoe is also planning a bit of a lifestyle takedown. Shown here is what appears to be the Nike LeBron XI NSW Lifestyle, a sneaker that riffs off the overall shape of the Nike LeBron XI while totally switching out the materials. Instead of that bulky Armorposite plating there’s a clean mixture of brown leather wrapping the upper. It took a long time into the lifespan of the current Bron sig for us to ever see the lifestyle alternate, so a sample popping up this early for the eleventh is indeed a bit strange. The first sight of the shoe comes serendipitously on the same day that Darrin Crascenzi, designer of the LeBron crown logo, was named to Fast Company’s list of Most Creative People. Check out the Nike LeBron XI NSW Lifestyle after the jump and stay tuned to Sneaker News for updated info as soon as it’s available.
