Eleven Nike LeBron 11 PEs You Can Build on NIKEiD
The LeBron 11 is a sneaker that’s been going at a pretty steady pace as far as retail releases are concerned. Since its debut we’ve seen the silhouette take inspiration from LeBron’s upbringing in Akron, his place at the top of the NBA, his Miami Heat colors, and more. That Heat category has been particularly deep thanks to the handful of player exclusive colorways that have been sent LeBron’s way so far for the 2013-14 NBA season. Adding on to the number of exclusives out there are the numerous pairs that have been given to a group of Nike-affiliated NCAA teams including the Ohio State Buckeyes, the Oregon State Beavers, the Florida Gators, and more.
In previous sneaker eras, before NIKEiD came to be a standard that would accompany any given signature release, your chances on tracking down anything close to these PE styles would have been pretty slim. The good thing is that now, via NIKEiD, you can actually create some pretty close approximations to the various PE pairs that are out there. Sure some of these schools might be utilizing that program to design their own, but we saved you the trouble of trying to whip them up with this set that are ready to go. Continue reading to see these LeBron 11 PEs along with links to purchase their NIKEiD recreations below.
Nike LeBron 11 “Blackout”
This was first seen on LeBron’s feet during the offseason. In fact, this all-black PE sample, which many fans have been seeking out, was the first look ever at the LeBron 11 signature.
Nike LeBron 11 “Home Speckle”
A pretty clean and simple colorway was spotted on LeBron’s feet. This pair utilized a translucent sole and white speckling on the red Hyperposite upper.
Nike LeBron 11 “Away”
This version, similar to the released pair, made use of a unique texture on the upper. While NIKEiD won’t allow for the exact recreation, the Forging Iron option serves up a nice alternative.
Nike LeBron 11 “Home”
Similar to the “Home Speckle” version we showed you two pages before, this “Home” rendition opts for no speckling and a solid white outsole.
Nike LeBron 11 “Kentucky”
The Wildcats were given these simple White/Royal pairs for their Home games. They have worn other versions throughout the season as well.
Nike LeBron 11 “Oregon State Beavers”
Rather similar to the Grey/Orange LeBron X, this special edition was made for the Oregon State Beavers.
Nike LeBron 11 “Duke”
A similar flavor to the Wildcats pair is this solid-blue version for the Blue Devils.
Nike LeBron 11 “Michigan State”
The Spartans made use of Forging Iron for their Home PEs.
Nike LeBron 11 “Akron Zips”
The school that LeBron might’ve gone to had he not gone pro gets a LeBron 11 PE. All Navy blue with grey hints and an icy sole make for one of the better school PEs yet.
Nike LeBron 11 “Ohio State Buckeyes”
THE Ohio State University gets a clean red/grey/white pair for Away games.
While this Gators iD isn’t an exact match (the zig-zag pattern isn’t an option on NIKEiD just yet), the basic colorway is very much attainable.
