LeBron James shoes give each player the unique experience to slip into the shoes of the "King." This, combined with the enhanced benefits in the LeBron 11, puts this basketball shoe a step above the rest.
Last year, LeBron James continued to build his legacy as one of the greatest of all-time. He won his second straight NBA Championship and NBA Finals MVP award, his fourth regular season MVP award, and was part of the second-longest winning streak in NBA history — 27 games. With such a successful year under his belt, James has many reasons to celebrate, including a long partnership with Nike basketball and another creative addition to the LeBron shoe line: the LeBron 11.
The lightest and lowest LeBron James shoe yet, the LeBron 11 gets you lower to the ground to give you a better feel for the court. The upper is built in a new way, featuring groundbreaking Nike Hyperposite technology for lightweight lockdown, while taking protection and responsiveness to a new level. The new Nike Hyperposite technology used in the LeBron 11 allows quicker movement so you can explode off the hardwood with confidence.
The Nike Hyperfuse construction and Dynamic Flywire technology offer excellent security for your feet that allows a more natural foot motion. The strong, lightweight Flywire cables give you a tighter and more secure midfoot feel, while delivering greater flexibility in the forefoot. The cables tighten during quick cuts and changes in direction, enhancing support and lockdown, so you get more stability where you need it and more freedom everywhere else. The cushioning system was completely revamped for the LeBron 11 shoe.
For the first time in a LeBron signature shoe, a full length Lunarlon midsole sits above the Nike Zoom unit, providing even more cushioning. This provides a soft ride with dynamic spring and response, so you can elevate around the rim and return for a soft landing. Additional benefits of the LeBron 11 shoe include a lower collar for enhanced flexibility through the ankle, a mesh tongue and full inner sleeve for breathability and comfort, and a lateral outrigger for stability while cutting. This is an ideal shoe for any player looking to realize the full potential of their athleticism while getting a low-to-the-court feel for enhanced stability.
The LeBron 11 shoes will initially be released in a “King’s Pride” colorway. This colorway draws inspiration from the fearlessness, determination, and heart-of-a-lion mentality that LeBron plays with. The pride of the lion is reflected in the dark loden-colored upper and floral print on the collar lining.
Shortly thereafter, the LeBron 11 will be seen in the following colorways: “Terracotta Warrior”, “Gamma Blue”, “Miami Heat”, “T-Rex”, and “Christmas.” You can also create your own custom LeBron 11 shoe through Nike iD.
