Reducing weight, refining angles and maximizing cushioning are just a few adjustments that Nike usually makes when approaching the Elite version for their marquee signature lines. Direct insights from Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and LeBron James have helped Nike fundamentally evolve basketball shoes, leading to new construction methods, state-of-the-art materials and technical innovations. The LEBRON 12 Elite embodies pinnacle performance and indisputable strength, much like James himself. The LEBRON 12 Elite leverages high-quality Megafuse construction with mesh and composite for structure and features new vertical wings wrapping the foot for lockdown and stability. There are three distinct Nike Elite Series Collections that launch monthly beginning in April. The first, Nike Elite Series Team Collection, launches April 18 and features the team colors of Bryant, Durant and James. The second, Nike Elite Series Elevate Collection, features blue hues as a nod to the sky and launches May 15. The third and final flow available June 5, Nike Elite Series Rose Gold Collection, pulls inspiration from the journey to the championship trophy.

This summer, Nike released the third iteration of the Nike Air LeBron Slide. Actually, only the Elite version has been released, but 8 different styles hit the stores. This is quite a lot considering the LeBron Slide 3 Elite costs $75. That’s an awful lot if you ask me for a pair of flip flops. Fortunately, most of them end up at outlets and you can buy them at roughly $40. Here’s a detailed look at 3 colorways… Sprite, Peach and Hyper Punch. Do you find LeBron James’ signature slides comfortable or do you prefer a less bulky construction on your feet during leisure time?

The summer is basically over, but if you’re looking for some new slides here’s one option to consider. The Nike Air LeBron Slide 3 Elite, which normally retails for a whooping $75, can be easily found for half that price. Nike released a total of 8 different Nike LeBron Slide 3’s and my favorite one is the presented Black and Peach Cream colorway. I’m not a huge fan of the Nike Air LeBron Slide series because they’re too bulky to wear on a day-to-day basis, but sometimes it’s nice to walk on air without any strings attached.

A couple of weeks ago we did get to preview a couple of interesting LeBron 11 and LeBron 11 Elite designs. Turns out, we might get to see them at retail soon. It’s not sure when or where, but the Nike LeBron 11 Elite is set to release soon in a new “Blue 3M” colorway. This interesting colorway features a light blue base with a subtle 3M stripe pattern running across it and silver Hyperposite accents with the same striped pattern. Rounding out the look for this latest LeBron 11 Elite is the articulated external cage in reflective silver and the icy blue translucent outsole. Stay tuned for more updates on the remaining LeBron 11 styles.

This is the first colorway of the Nike LeBron 11 SE set to drop, however, I have no idea what the SE means in this case. Apparently it’s a special version of the elite version of the LeBron XI. The new version sports a university red upper and metallic gold panels with speckled translucent outsole. This is a limited release, which drops today at Nike Basketball retailers, but it is expected to his other markets by the end of this month. Retail is set at $295, which is $20 more than the previous record price held by the regular LeBron 11 Elite. Some will consider this a bargain because the previous installments were released as a part of the Championship Packs, which basically can’t be bought with normal money.
