Celebrating player achievement in the final stretch to ultimate victory, Nike Basketball unveils the Elite Series 2.0+ Collection. The lineup consists of gold-accented make-ups of the LeBron X PS Elite+, Kobe 8 System Elite+ and KD V Elite+, each incorporating the most innovative materials and design techniques. Designs draw inspiration from the championship trophy and feature lightweight construction, enhanced fit and dynamic protection.
White and black-based colorways bear gold Swoosh branding and other gold details that vary from shoe to shoe, including athlete logos, gold-flecked Kevlar aramid laces, Flywire technology and speckled outsoles.
Nike Elite Series 2.0 sneakers are Nike+ enabled, allowing athletes to track performance and sync to an iPhone via Bluetooth. The Nike+ Basketball app was recently updated to include a number of new features including Intensity, Game Breakdown, Activity History and All Access.
All three Nike ELITE Series 2.0+ basketball shoes will be available at select retail locations and online at Nike.com: the LeBron X PS Elite+ and KD V Elite+ on April 20, and Kobe 8 System Elite+ on June 1.
