“Now that Nike gave me that, I know my shoes are working as hard as I am.”
LeBron James in the NBA Finals? Not quite a headline for the greatest player of our generation. King James is aiming for his sixth straight Finals appearance this June, and it’ll take twelve grueling wins to reach that platform reserved for the players that “want it more” than anybody else. Going along for the ride is the fifth iteration of the LeBron Elite series, the LeBron 13 Elite. For the most finely-tuned LeBron sneaker yet, Nike keeps the postseason-targeted LeBron 13 Elite refreshingly simple in design, almost as if it were an entirely new shoe. The upper bootie features a Kurim cage, an extremely pliable and durable material that acts as the primary lockdown for LeBron’s feet. A massive carbon fiber shank that extends to the ankle provides even more stability and springiness, while the Hex-Zoom cushioning unit adds one more piece for even more support. Gather yourself and flip through the photos just ahead and stay tuned as LeBron James approaches the Playoffs in his quest for a third NBA title.
