After teasing us back in May, Nike Basketball is finally set to release the highly-coveted Nike LeBron XI “What The.” Made up of pieces and patterns of the full Nike LeBron line, the model can be broken down into 28 different pieces and bring memories of LeBron’s entry in the league and his current reign as one of the best players in the league. Nike Basketball took the opportunity to not just use the “What The” theme introduced on the SB Dunk Low back in 2007, but pay homage to the stories and moments in LeBron’s career that we remember most. See a breakdown of the hidden inspirations below courtesy of Complex. Good luck to everyone trying to make a purchase! Only a couple of moments left till the drop.Read the rest of this entry »
Tomorrow marks the release of the beloved “What the” LeBron XI and this year’s mash up definitely separates in uniqueness from the previous models. The “What The” LeBron 9 having never been released only built up a lot of hype around the shoe and the recent model of the “What The” LeBron X had sneakerheads going crazy. Most collectors should know and understand the concept behind Nike’s “What The” model kicks and generally the Swoosh uses different aesthetic components and design elements from the same model all compiled into one crazy looking sneaker. This rule wasn’t any different when approaching the LeBron 9 and 10 and history has shown that these concepts for the Nike LeBron line and models was a huge success. The current model of the LeBron XI was no different when it came to the “What The” approach but with a twist that only hardcore LeBron fans would know or even notice. Unlike the 9 and 10, the LeBron XI not only utilizes elements of other XI models but also takes on components from actual LeBron models from the past. Case in point, the new “What The” LeBrox XI seems to be using the actual tongues taken from the South Beach 8 and Red Carpet 7. You can also see hits of Fruity Pebbles and Graffiti taken from the LeBron 4, all-in-all, you’ll find 28 different design and aesthetic elements taken from the King’s past models making this “What The” LeBron the most unique from the previous released and unreleased. The shoe will be available tomorrow in not-so-limited numbers so hopefully everyone can get a pair.Read the rest of this entry »
It was unveiled on April 1st, and after a couple of delays the launch of the What the LeBron 11 is only a couple of days away. The LeBron James signature line has featured a myriad of innovations, stories, and unique design elements on its shoes over the years. With the latest edition of the “What the” concept, Nike celebrates all of that history on the King’s eleventh signature sneaker. The colors and graphics that are used for this mismatched pair are taken from the past eleven months of Lebron 11 releases. In all, 28 different elements are borrowed from various sources to make up one exciting and wild creation. It’s a limited edition release planned for next Saturday, September 13th. I’m pretty sure even the inflated $250 price tag won’t scare any fans away. Check out the new beauty pics below.Read the rest of this entry »

Between the LeBron 11, the LeBron 11 Low and the LeBron 11 Elite, Nike released over 40 different styles… topping last year’s LeBron X, but not by much. This weekend the Nike Max LeBron XI Low is set to be released in the all new Biscayne colorway, which features multiple shades of green on the upper and pops of Hyper Crimson on the Dynamic Flywire, tongue tab, Max Air bag and outsole for a distinct look. This is already the twelfth version of the LeBron 11 Low, which is also the new record for LeBron’s signature line. Most of them were much better than last year. How does the Biscayne rank among other styles? Are you going to pick them up this Saturday? Let us know below.

The Nike Max LeBron XI Low China takes the idea of using a Chinese porcelain vase, applying the theme to the upper of the shoe. Of course, using actual patterns from a Chinese vase would seem out-of-place, so Nike took the opportunity to give the whole porcelain vibe a more aggressive feel. Chinese dragons flying across clouds are illustrated on half of the paneling on the upper. Splattered Hyper Cobalt is sprayed on the rear side panels, while white mesh does its job of spreading the focus from illustration to textures. The illustration is very detailed. The LeBron 11 Low China has paired the Hyper Cobalt with gold details. The blue lacelock also features an inverse-splatter pattern from the upper, while the tongue continues the painting you see below. A small but dope detail to look out for is the midsole. The Air Unit is featured, of course, but note the blue streaks floating around the pillars. Real nice touch. The official release date was yesterday, but some stores have postponed the launch so keep your eyes peeled.

The Nike LeBron 11 Low surfaces in yet another new colorway. Unlike in previous years when usually bright and wild styles ruled the LeBron James’ low-top silhouette, this time we get a nice toned back look with this all new White and Grey version. It’s not boring, though, thanks to an unique graphic inner lining, a speckled midsole and additional red details on the upper. Stay tuned for more details and hopefully a launch data once available.
