NIKEiD Concept // LeBron 11 'Draft Day' 2003 (1)

words // Brandon Richard

On June 26, 2003, the NBA changed forever when the Cleveland Cavaliers selected LeBron James with the first overall pick in the draft. Since then, LeBron has won two NBA championships, four MVP awards, two Olympic Gold Medals and has been selected as an All-Star nine times. Remembering the day the most heralded prospect of all-time officially became a pro, NIKEiD mocked up this 'Draft Day' colorway of the LeBron 11.

Inspired by LeBron's all-white suit, the 'Draft Day' 11 sports an all-white look, subtly accented by a red inner lining and black outsole. This style can be ordered now at
