Nike is very good at keeping things under wraps. Although we did a couple of looks at the LeBron X P.S. Elite, it’s now time for the Swoosh to officially announce the new Elite series. Modern-day athletic superheroes LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant showcase an uncanny skill-set, which is now complemented by footwear boasting Kevlar aramid, Carbon Fiber and articulated foam. King James’ elite version drafts off the rare Carbonado diamond, a virtually indestructible stone said to derive from an ancient supernova, the most explosive force in the universe. The LEBRON X PS ELITE is designed to be stronger, offering the highest level of performance for James in the post season. The shoe builds on the innovative advances of the LEBRON X and takes it to a new level with:
- Carbon fiber-reinforced mid-foot wings for excellent lateral stability
- Kevlar aramid-reinforced Nike Flywire technology for consistent lock-down through the midfoot
- Kevlar aramid laces resist stretching for a more consistent fit
- Articulated foam tongue provides impact protection and minimizes lace pressure
All three Nike ELITE Series 2.0 basketball shoes – the LEBRON X PS ELITE, KOBE 8 SYSTEM ELITE, KD V ELITE – are available at select retail locations and online at Nike.com beginning April 27th, 2013.
