With the regular season winding down, Nike Basketball is preparing to launch the elite version of the Nike LeBron 11.
In the images that have surfaced, the Elite appears to retain the 11's silhouette, strip away some of the Hyperposite and add a heel counter. We're still awaiting Nike's official announcement for all of the tech details.
Thus far, three colorways have leaked, and we have the release rundown for each. Things will get started with the 'Wolf Grey' colorway in mid-April, continue with the 'Crimson' style pictured below in May and then a black-based style will drop in June. Retail is set at $275, quite a hike over the $200 tag of the standard 11. More information below.
