This morning Nike Basketball confirmed that the Nike LeBron 11 would be given the “What The” treatment when they unveiled this year’s range of mash-up models of that sort. And while the “What The” LeBron 11 does every bit of justice possible to that theme, it also does a fair amount of innovating by reaching beyond just the Nike LeBron 11 in terms of colorway inspiration. What results is a “What The” release that’s unlike any that we’ve seen before; instead of touching on popular colorways of the current model, Nike went to great lengths to devise this colorway, essentially creating a “greatest hits” of the LeBron signature shoe legacy.
The “What the LeBron” 11 pulls from 28 different prints from Nike LeBrons that span the over entire history of James’ sneaker line. The shoes are oozing with details drawn on the last decade plus of LeBron sneakers, and we’ve gone through the task of pointing out all the little inspirations that make up the premium pair (See if you can pick them all out first before you flip through our handy guide). Most, if not all, of these hits are featured in our Sneaker News March Madness Nike LeBron Tournament (and you should vote now if you haven’t). Continue reading to see which sneakers are referenced in the “What the” LeBron 11 and let us know what surprises you!
The Nike “What The LeBron 11” releases on May 31st at global retailers.
