We got our first look at the Nike LeBron 11 Elite a few weeks back, and today, we have a better look at that same colorway. While the Elite versions of the past two LeBrons have been defined by adding large carbon fiber reinforcements, the 11 appears to break from that tradition.

We'll have to wait on the official details to to find out what exactly makes this model "Elite," since there appears to be less Hyperposite and no carbon fiber. If the 11 Elite demands the same premium markup as past models though, what elements do you think could possibly be attributed to the price increase?
