Nike is ready to launch the all new Max LeBron XI Low this weekend with the premiere of the Easter colorway. Here’s one of the other styles that’s already available in the Asia / Pacific region. It consists of Turbo Green, Nightshade, Glacier Ice and Laser Crimson. There’s no word on when they hit U.S., there’s no official word from Nike, but my guess is that it will be very soon. Let us know what’s your favorite version of the LeBron 11 Low and if you plan to pick up a pair.

LeBron James’ signature Dunkman pose makes a comeback with the Nike LeBron XI Low next month. The Men’s version of the LeBron 11 Low uses the LeBron 9 outsole, but the Kids’ version still uses the LeBron 8 V/2 outsole. Other than that the Grade School edition is pretty much the same as adult’s… even in the presented Dunkman colorway.

I’m not a huge fan of LeBron James’ low-tops mainly because they’re pretty much the same every year. I miss the good old days when the Zoom LeBron II Low was just as good as the Mid. Same rule applies to the LeBron 8 V/2 Low… in both cases we got a truly low-top edition in the classic meaning of this term, which is to “cut-off” the ankle area and leave the rest as it was. Nowadays it’s just a new upper, which kind of looks like it was inspired by the Mids, and the same old 360 Air Max tooling below. The Dunkman theme hasn’t had much luck either as of late. Instead of using the classic “Mean Green” they’ve been using what I call a “weird green” instead. Despite all that the presented Dunkman LeBron XI Low might be a winner. It’s not your instant classic, it won’t sell out either, but it’s a solid B+ for effort. Check out this Promo Sample pair, which recently popped up on eBay. The General Release pair, which drops in two months, is nearly identical.

Kyrie Irving is currently watching NBA games on the sidelines due to the bicep injury he suffered a couple weeks back. It may be the end of the season for him because the Cleveland Cavaliers are currently 3 games behind the 8th seed… the Atlanta Hawks. Kyrie was mentioned here on this website long before his NBA career had begun. In 2010, he wore his own Player Exclusive version of the Nike LeBron 8 V/2 Low in Chris Paul’s All-Star Charity Pickup Game. This Friday he brought back the shoes during the warm up before the Brooklyn Nets game. Thanks to @geminikeez we get a couple of new detailed shots. In my opinion, this is the nicest colorway for what’s for me the most successful Nike LeBron low-top ever.

With Spring in the air and Easter weekend on the horizon, Nike Basketball brings the spirit of the holiday to its new Easter collection. Driven by performance, the three low-cut signature shoes for LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant undergo a festive Easter makeover with individual stories connected to each shoe. The LEBRON 11 Low comes with a lower cut, full-length Max Air bag and zonal articulation for optimal flexibility and breathability. This special Easter edition takes inspiration from wearing your Sunday best, in a clean white upper with a paisley pattern inspired by the tropical palm trees of Miami. The Nike Basketball Easter Collection will be available April 18th at nikestore.com. Each shoe’s special colorway also comes to life in a matching t-shirt and a hat.

For the third straight year Nike is about to launch the low-top version of LeBron James’ signature shoes starting with the Easter colorway. This time it’s a clean design based on a White Hyperfuse upper with Green accents including Easter graphics on the Swoosh and on the inner lining. Green is also present on the tooling below. The “Easter” Air Max LeBron XI Low drops on April 18th. The price has been upgraded from $165 (LeBron 10 Low) to $170 for this year’s version.

LeBron James has already debuted the Nike LeBron XI Low on court, but the official launch is next month, which is when we get to try them out. Joining confirmed releases of the Dunkman and Easter colorways are two new styles in Black / Blue and Grey / Red. Just like most of the previous LeBron low-tops, the LeBron 11 Low features the 360 Max Air cushioning setup and works with a full Hyperfuse upper. The new pairs confirm the sole design, which is a copy and paste solution borrowed from the LeBron 8 V/2.

Below there are two new colorway of the upcoming Nike LeBron XI Low… let’s call these Easter and Entourage. I was pretty disappointed when I learned the LeBron 11 Low still uses the same Air Max tooling for the fourth year in a row. Turns out, not only the cushioning has stayed the same, instead of going Zoom Max, but the outsole, which has already been re-used a couple of times has been borrowed from the LeBron 8 V/2 Low. Is there any way the LeBron James’ signature low-tops could become any less interesting? I mean changing the upper won’t fix the fact they’re heavy and stiff. Let’s hope there are some nice colorways coming because that’s the only way to save these now. Oh, did I mention the price is higher, again?!? Well, it is. Not sure why when you’re recycling materials. Step it up, Nike! You have the best signature collection on the line here. Let us know what you think and see the outsole history below.
