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.

When Nike announced the Gumbo NIKEiD option for the LeBron 11 they said it will be available for a limited time and they kept their word. It wasn’t just for hype. The regular LeBron 11 iD has many color options, compared to the last year’s model, but the Gumbo version allowed for a nearly endless array of combinations. Mixing different patterns on the upper and choosing different colors for front and back outsole was a lot of fun. Here’s one of the creations sent by our reader Angel. It channels the South Beach theme, sort of, but in a whole new way. Let us know about your own Gumbo iD creations. In order to get your pics up use the contact form, or Twitter, or Facebook.

With the LeBron 11 Elite Nike wanted to go with more protection and more containment rather than just making the shoes slightly lighter like with the previous iterations. Apparently instead of going with carbon fiber like usual, they used a metalized TPU plate, which is still strong enough but is much more flexible. This is crucial for LeBron doing his cuts and when he’s moving laterally. The big difference in terms of the Hyperposite from the original LeBron 11 is the removal of some elements in the forefoot in order to minimize the weight but also keep that level of protection. The initial Wolf Grey, Laser Crimson, Cool Grey and Black colorway of the LeBron XI drops in just a couple of hours at nikestore.com and other Nike Basketball retailers. Fans in Europe got them yesterday and they’re still available for purchase. Take a closer look below or browse the gallery for more pics.

Nike Basketball has divided the Elite 3.0 collection intro three groups. Mark your calendars for April 12th, May 9th, and June 6th as the “Team”, “Hero”, and “Gold” collections will be up for grabs, respectively. Folks at sneakernews.com had a chance to sit down with Charles Williams – Nike Basketball Product Director – and discuss the inspiration behind this year’s Elites. This gives us a chance to take a closer look at a couple of early stage samples. By the way, turns out the LeBron 11 Elite was inspired by Lamborghini Egoista. They’re both pricey and pretty cool too.

LeBron James seems to be having so much fun with his shoes right now. Lacing up a new pair every game is not enough so he does two new pairs per game now. On Monday he introduced two new Nike Soldier 7 PEs, which can be customized on Nike iD, and last night he went with yet another new version of the Soldier 7 and a new Player Exclusive colorway of the Nike LeBron 11 Elite in Black and Red. Both of these shoes are a pretty sick match with Miami’s throwback uniforms. Check out the pics below and stay tuned for new episodes of our LeBron James sole watch for the upcoming games.

This is how LeBron James’ locker, located at the American Airlines Arena, looks like. It’s full of shoes… no surprise there. All of the shoes pictured below are different variants of the Nike LeBron 11. There are 3 versions of his Miami Heat PEs, a couple of GRs (Black/Red, BHM, Graffiti). Additionally, there are 3 different low-top colorways including an unseen before predominantly white version. Both of LeBron’s Elite PEs are here as well. What’s missing is the Nike Soldier 7, which is his current game shoe… maybe that’s the reason why it’s not here. It would be so nice to examine all these pairs in person! Via NikeTalk.
