News & Updates
The Nike LeBron 11 story is far from over with at least two new colorways to be released in the upcoming months. That’s only for the regular version… Elite and Ext series are about to debut very soon as well. One of the upcoming LeBron XI styles is the presented Blackout colorway. Black always works good on posite kicks, but this time Nike Basketball adds more flavor with textured Hyperposite panels and Camo details spilled on the outsole, inner lining and the logos. The “Blackout” LeBron 11 is scheduled to be released on Saturday, March 29th at Nike.com. Photo via @fwalker03.

At the end of the month we might get the very first taste of the LEBRON XI EXT with the Denim colorway, which has already been confirmed to be released in Europe on Wednesday, March 26th. Hopefully it’s just the beginning of Nike Sportswear’s LeBron 11 Ext collection, which may or may not include the presented King’s Crown edition. Unlike other NSW editions it does not only come with premium lifestyle materials (nubuck in this case), but also an iridescent finish on the Hyperposite panels and a clear outsole for more pop. The end result is simply amazing! Hopefully the next time we get to see these is to tell you the actual release date. Stay tuned for updates.Read the rest of this entry »
The Nike LeBron XI in the “Summit Lake Hornets” colorway pays homage to the AAU basketball team where LeBron James honed his basketball skills on his way up through the youth ranks. While LBJ is gone from Ohio, there’s no shortage of LeBron sneakers that still connect with his home turf. The Hornets LeBron 11 takes the theme quite literally with a blue and purple beehive-like hexagonal print across the upper. The most nostable detail as far as the theme is concerned is the honeycomb overlay that falls between the cracks of the Hyperposite pieces. The shoes drop tomorrow at major Nike Basketball retailers including Footaction, Champs, Footlocker and Nike.com.

LeBron James’ school colorways are back with a vengeance this season along with the Nike LeBron XI. In addition the classic SVSM, CTK, OSU, and Fairfax, Nike Basketball came up with a couple of new ones like Gators, Beavers and even the Akron Zips. The Florida Gators PEs, both Home and Away, feature the popular Blue and Orange theme with addition of the zig-zag pattern on the Hyperfuse overlay. Would you like to see these released or at least added as a new Nike iD option? Take a closer look below.Read the rest of this entry »
Watch the Throne PE was one of the most wanted LeBron 9′s. Nike made a couple of different versions, but all of them had one thing in common… they were insanely difficult to get. Turns out LeBron James’ new career high of 61 points made his buddy Brandon Weems celebrate with a special post showing a previously unseen and unexpected WTT edition of the LeBron XI. Most of the features have been re-created with the 11′s including the graphic laces, clear outsole and graphic inner lining. With many fans awaiting for the unveiling of the NBA 2K14 limited edition is this something you would expect for the 2K14′s to be?
LeBron James became the 18th player in the last 51 years to record a 60-point game on Monday night, scoring a career-high and Miami Heat franchise-best 61 points in a 124-107 win over the Charlotte Bobcats. Not only was it James’ first 60-point game, it was also a Heat franchise record (Glen Rice had 56 on April 15, 1995). James made 22 of 33 field-goal attempts, including 8 of 10 from 3-point range. He set a new career high in made three-pointers, shooting 8-for-10 from long range. This is tied for the most threes made in a 50-point game, along with Kobe Bryant’s 8-for-12 in a 65-point performance against the Portland Trail Blazers in 2007. And James didn’t miss one until the game was well in hand, shooting 8-for-8 through the first three quarters of the game. LeBron shot 22-for-33 against the Bobcats, marking only the second time in his career that he’s made at least 20 baskets in a game. He shot 20-for-30 in a 49-point performance against the Orlando Magic during the 2009 playoffs. If Nike Basketball decides to celebrate what seems to be LBJ’s best shooting night in his career, it would have to be a special edition of the Nike Zoom Soldier VII. He wore the Soldier 7 Miami Heat Home PE and he hasn’t laced up the LeBron 11 since the All-Star Game. Basically, he wore the 11′s only twice in the whole month of February. Continue reading for a short video showing all his made baskets. Congratulations LeBron!
For weeks it has appeared that the Summit Lake Hornets colorway of the Nike LeBron XI will conclude the 11 series. However, with the recent unveiling of the Black out (drops on March 29th) and South Beach (June) styles we know that’s not true. The Nike LeBron 11 “Summit Lake Hornets”, which is slated for an official release this weekend, is beginning to hit select Nike retailers now. Take a closer look below and let us know if you plan to rock Hornets 11′s this Spring.Read the rest of this entry »
Last night, LeBron James complied with the NBA’s request to ditch his black mask for a clearer version to protect his broken nose for the Miami Heat’s game Saturday night against the Orlando Magic, though he said the league’s explanation “didn’t make sense” to him. “I don’t want to get into it,” James said. “I’m good with the NBA. We’re good. I am not against the NBA. They had a request and I fulfilled it. Let’s just leave it at that. As long as (the mask) is transparent. As long as they can see my face, my opponents.” Additionally, LeBron used a brand new version of the Nike Soldier VII. It’s already his tenth version of the new Soldiers and most of his pairs are Player Exclusives, of course.
