We've already seen the KD edition, but it turns out that's not the only new "What The" shoe on the way from Nike Basketball. A LeBron 11 is also on the way.
After originally being seen on the "What the Dunk," from Nike SB, the concept came to Nike Basketball back on the Kobe VII. Now, it's gone on to become almost as expected as a Christmas or All Star colorway.
This year's "What the LeBron" edition features eight design elements from past LeBron models like the VII and V, combined with 20 different elements from earlier 11s. The KD edition sticks to the VI for its mashed-up colors, combining 35 different graphics and colors.
The LeBron edition launches globally on May 31st, with the KD following a week later on June 7th. And don't worry about the challanges wearing such a shoe may present to future outfits - matching tees will also be available.
Let us know what you think in the comments. Do you like the "What the" concept? Would you like to see it continue year after year?
