It took less than a week to lay our eyes on the first custom colorway of the Nike LeBron XI. Shortly after the LeBron 11 “King’s Pride” made its debut last week, Lancer Customs created a special “Kings Rings” custom make up. It is somewhat reminiscent of the Championship Floral design seen on the Nike LeBron X Low that was included in the Championship Pack a couple months back. The custom graphics on the upper are an extension to the Jungle inline pattern that was included for the initial LeBron XI drop. Continue reading for a detailed look.

LeBron James was one of the first superstars to truly acknowledge the custom sneaker game by reaching out to Mache for the creation of the Ironman 3 inspired colorway of the LeBron X. With much more reasons to celebrate after winning his 2nd NBA title, he once again outsourced his sneaker needs outside of Beaverton, Oregon and connected with another customizer Jake Danklefs aka Dank Customs for the creation of the “Championship” LEBRON X PS Elite. The shoe features a black and metallic gold upper with red trim along the panels and Swoosh border. “Champ” and “MVP” tags appear on the heels, while custom trophy tags adorn the tongues. On the inside, there are two custom insoles featuring James sitting with his trophies and the celebratory “WIITNESS” logo. The packaging is just as special. The shoes came in a wooden box with lasered details including the “Earned not Given” catchphrase and the retired Lionhead logo. They were gifted to LeBron, who has already shared his newest pickup on Instagram.

Upon the announcement of LeBron James’ one-day visit in Philippines, fans did all they could to get a chance to see King James up close and personal. Thousands (yes, thousands) were in line for days, under the extremities to get those coveted tickets. You’d think that would be the lasting memory from this tour. Nike Did It. Again. Taking inspiration from the main theme – #WITNESSHISTORY – Nike invited ten artists (note: artists/creatives/musicians, not sneaker customizers) to customize the Nike LeBron X. From achievements, LeBron marks (tattoos, the Lion, “King” James) or personal steez, these 10 artists were to make these size 16 ‘Brons wearable. The LeBron X Customization Project installation is at Nike Park BHS and will be on display until the 23rd. Go check it out. It’s amazing.

Inspired by Nike Basketball X LeBron James celebratory low tops, the presented Nike LeBron X Elite “2-Time Champion” Custom gets the floral finish from the low-top version of the shoe. Designed my Mache Customs, this pair mixes both shoes from the Championship Pack into a single silhouette with the leafy theme and a tropical green base. It’s all in the less obvious details as the iridescent pewter/green of the lows is present on the midsoles as well as the graphics over the matte black hyperfuse upper. This is the first out of a total of 6 pairs that will be sold via Mache’s website at machecustoms.com.

Nike Basketball used the Superhero concept to create the Elite 2.0 Collection, but sneaker customizers have been using that idea for quite a while now. This time it’s The Flash as Mache Custom Kicks unveils his latest pair of superhero-themed customs for the Nike LeBron X. Using the legendary “Flash” of DC Comics as inspiration the shoe features a red and yellow upper with bolt graphics scattered throughout and the Flash’s lightning bolt logo on the heel. These customs were made for New Orleans Hornets rookie Darius Miller, but it would be even more cool if Dwyane Wade would be the one to wear it, right?
