It’s hard to understand the logic behind Nike’s launch list for this summer. Two years in a row, fans where denied the opportunity to buy LeBron James’ Championship Pack shoes when he earned his first and second ring. I know the shoes actually dropped, but they were impossible to get for a mere mortal. This season when it was the San Antonio Spurs who won the title, Nike decides to release the LeBron 11 Low SE and now the LeBron 11 Elite SE. Obviously, it’s not a Championship Pack, heck it’s not even any pack as the shoes drop separately, but it’s hard not to make the connection when both shoes like so similar to the previous editions. And I’m not being salty here… I’m happy that for once fans can get the Floral low-tops and Red and Gold Elites without much of a hustle. It’s just that much weird! All in all, the Nike LeBron 11 Elite SE in University Red/Metallic Gold drops on August 1st for $295.

Nike Basketball has not given up on the LeBron 11 Elites just yet. Seems like one of the wildest designs in the recent history has been reserved for the very end. It looks more like one of Dwyane Wade’s crazy Way of Wade styles, which usually set the bar high on creativity. The presented Blue and Grey base is unlike anything we’ve seen from Nike LeBron collection with a very interesting 3M stripes pattern all over the upper and an iridescent finish on the Hyperposite. There’s no word on the inspiration just yet, but everything points to these being a late season drop in the works. Stay tuned for more updates and let us know if you’d be interested in picking up a pair.

Turns out Nike may still release the Red and Gold edition of the LeBron 11 Elite SE (notice the new suffix in the name of the shoe). The SE is the last in the Elite series before the Nike Lebron 12 is unveiled. Calling these the NBA Finals shoes would normally be incorrect, but these follow the same theme established by the last year’s “Championship Pack” LeBron 10 Elites. This pair is dyed in red with shiny metallic gold and silver accents and a gold flaked translucent outsole. Hopefully Nike won’t cancel the release this time. As you can see below the boxes were ready to go.

It seems that Nike was ready for LeBron James to capitalize on his third straight NBA Championship. We may never know for sure, but these sample colorways of the LeBron 11 Elite and the LeBron 11 Low are designed in a similar way to last season’s celebratory LeBron 10 Championship Pack. The Elites featured a red upper and metallic gold and silver details. The low-tops are once again more graphic with a colorful pattern on the upper, gold swoosh and red outsole. I think that the pack is very well executed and I would like to see these in stores, but a part of me knows that getting a pair would be near to impossible so at least there’s no pressure this year.

After wearing the Nike Soldier VII in Games 1 and 2, LeBron dug deep in his locker and pulled out the Nike LeBron X P.S. Elite in Game 3. He used the Finals colorway, duh, and right now he’s wearing the Soldiers again in Game 4. Take a closer look at the shoes below and stay tuned for more update. By the way, LeBron already wore the LeBron 10 Elite at the beginning of the season when he experienced problems wit h the LeBron 11 for the first time.

With LeBron James staying put with the Nike Soldier 7 we turn to other players using kicks with the Nike LeBron name with it. There’s Manu Ginobili with his own LeBron 11 PEs/IDs and there’s the Birdman with the LeBon 10, who’s been lucky enough to inherit most of LBJ’s Miami Heat PEs from last year. Here’s a closer look at the LeBron X PE with a matte finish on the upper, speckled midsole, Chrome diamond cut swoosh and red details including #6 on the back of the shoe. Photos via @geminikeez.

LeBron James is still rolling with the Soldiers, but the Manu Ginobili of the San Antonio Spurs provided us with the Nike LeBron 11 sighting in Game One of the NBA Finals. Last night, he sported a Grey and Gold colorway, but turns out he has at least three different versions ready to go. All of them look pretty nice. Kind of makes me wish he would have exchanged his kicks with King James.
