In October, Nike Basketball will officially usher in the next era of LeBron James' signature sneaker line.
Based on the concepts of protection, containment and responsiveness, the Nike LeBron XI marks the introduction of Armorposite, a modernized lightweight performance version of Foamposite. Other tech features include Dynamic Flywire support and full-length Zoom coupled with Lunarlon cushioning.
First up for the LeBron XI will be this "Parachute Gold" colorway, helped by Arctic Green on the patterned inner lining, Swoosh border and outsole. Red chimes in subtly on the tongue tab and lacing system.
Priced at $200, the "Parachute Gold" LeBron XI will hit retailers on Saturday, October 12. Sizes run down to toddler.
