Nike Basketball is expected to release four different colorways of the Nike LeBron X PS Elite. Similar to what hey did last year with the LeBron 9 PS Elite. However, this time, if you’re not a fan of the White/Gold, Superhero, Infrared, or Turquoise colorways, you can design your own using the Nike iD platform. It will cost you an awful lot… $300, $320, or $390 depending on the Nike Plus options of your choosing, but if you think it’s pricey in the States then think again. Fans in Europe are having a hard time ordering a pair because it costs about $370 for the cheapest version in the UK all the way up to $550 (!) in Germany for the Sport Pack. Nike, that’s crazy. Anyway, if you can afford it, there are some great color options available. Feel free to share your designs via twitter, facebook or the post comment system below.Read the rest of this entry »
This season, LeBron James has been switching his shoe laces a lot! If you look at the 2010-2011 Timeline he’s only worn 9 different shoes thus far, however, if we include his laces variations it would be much more. Changing laces is the easiest way to customize your shoes. Sometimes Nike includes alternate laces along with the shoes, but call me crazy they’re red 90% of the time. For example… Chrismas 8′s, Yankee 7′s, Red Carpet 7′s, Christmas 7′s. Of course you can’t get the signature laces sold separately. Fortunetely there’s a way. Ebay seller JohnnieThong offers a wide selection of laces in many colors and styles, but most importantly his athletic basketball strings are a perfect replacement for all recent Nike LeBron releases. The quality is very good too. So if you don’t mind lack of the LBJ logos on the tips be sure to check out his offer. The results are very nice and from what I know his customers are very pleased. See below for a preview of possibilities that includes the newest LeBron 8 V2 – Pre-Dunkman – with Electric Green laces (here’s the original look). Remember, your imagination is the only limit here!

Nike has improved the Nike iD platfrom a lot over the years. Today’s updates should satisfy all the nay-sayers in terms of the number of options available to customize the Nike LeBron XI. In the past in was difficult to use different colors in various sections of the shoe. Now you can color pretty much everything! You can style both swoosh logos and the tongue logo independently. You can also use different colors for the forefoot and heel portions of the outsole and even change the midfoot shank. Finally… you can mix the Chroma, Forging Iron, Graffiti, Speckle and Solid options altogether and if you like to glow there are five different glow-in-the-dark effects to use on the outsole. Actually it would be a lot easier to say what can’t be done because the possibilities for what can be done seem to be endless right now. Head over to nikestore.com and please try to prove me wrong. The Gumbo collection will be up for about 6 weeks, unless the materials run out sooner, but the biggest downside is the extended waiting period (up to 8 weeks).Read the rest of this entry »
Even though college athletes don’t get paid, they still get taken care of nicely, especially during bowl season. The Oregon State Beavers were lucky enough to get brand new customized LeBron 11′s before their upcoming Hawaii Bowl. Unlike previous college PEs for the Florida Gators and the Ohio State Basketball, this time it’s for a football team. The sneakers look pretty nice in Beavers’ colors.

Looks like college colorways are back for the Nike LeBron 11! Nike Basketball also hooked up the Ohio State Buckeyes with personalized Nike LeBron XI PEs for both home and away games. The OSU-inspired PEs take on a similar zig-zag theme as the Florida Gators PEs we profiled just yesterday, with the exception of only the Home version working the custom pattern. The Aways feature a simple red Hyperfuse upper with contrasting white sections on the outsole, Nike branding and the inner lining. I wonder if we get to customize our shoes in a similar way on Nike iD with the anticipated color options pack.Read the rest of this entry »
I already mentioned about LeBron’s struggles with the LeBron 11 a number of times. Chris at kicksoncourt.com also tried to explain what it means for regular users… basically there’s no need to worry. For those that are unaware, signature athletes today get their shoes custom made to fit their exact foot shape… with the emphasis on their exact foot shape. The company will make a custom last (foot mold) off of the athlete’s foot and that is what they use to build their PE’s from. Not only that but certain athletes – like LeBron – have other alterations made to their shoes so they perform to their exact specifications. Here’s an example showing his customized LeBron IV insoles that include an additional Carbon Fiber plate. Modifying the Lunarlon + Zoom Air cushioning setup of the Nike LeBron XI could be one way to fix the toebox problem for King James. Either that or he needs to break in more pairs instead of wearing a fresh pair every game like he’s probably used to. That just doesn’t work out too well with Foamposite. Stay tuned for updates. Hopefully this will be over soon.Read the rest of this entry »

Earlier this month we profiled a very special custom version of the Nike LeBron X P.S. Elite made by Dank Customs commemorating LeBron James’ second NBA Championship. Today is the NBA Media Day for the Miami Heat and James has made his appearance wearing the aforementioned custom kicks. It’s already the second time he’s wearing customized shoes after he broke out Mache’s Ironman joins in practice during the NBA Finals. Continue reading for more pics from media day and the shoes as well.Read the rest of this entry »
