It really seems like the quantity of the newly released sneakers is one of the best kept secrets these days. The biggest question right now is how many pairs of the King of the Jungle / King’s Pride colorway of the Nike LeBron XI will be actually released this weekend. Well, I don’t have the actual numbers, but let’s compare it to the launch of the LeBron X. Last year Nike started things with two very limited edition shoes – Gold Medal and Crown Jewel. Both dropped at House of Hoops stores and it was an instant sell out online at NDC (Twitter Link Only). The King’s Pride XI’s are already available from several online boutiques for $250-300. Additionally, it’s a global release so I really don’t expect us paying more than $200-300 in order to secure a pair. Pretty much every single Footlocker store is getting them (see the map below), however, the biggest concern is still the quantity per store. Please have in mind the demand is very high and it is the first colorway so they will fly off the shelves. Finding these for retail will be a challenge, but not something entirely impossible. Enjoy the new pics after the jump and let us know your strategy for the upcoming LEBRON 11 launch.

    All things point to a GR right now.

    I’ve had mine for 2 weeks and paid $250… These will be a super GR. Every footlocker, champs, finishline, etc will have at least a full size run. A lot of people are still on the fence on the looks, as well as trying to swallow the $200 retail. Should have no problem copping for those who want them. I’m planning on a second pair with no problem
