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.

I know Kids’ shoes are all about colors and fun. But the latest creation from Nike Basketball may injure your little one’s eyes. The new Volt and Orange colorway of the Nike LeBron XI Low is probably the brightest pair of shoes I’ve ever seen and it should come out with a pair of sunglasses for safety. These should come out in the upcoming weeks in Grade School sizes. I know this a general wondering, but why all the shoes have to be so bright these days?!? Last year there were 11 colorways of the LeBron X Low and apart from the USAB version the rest had at least one bright hue popping out hard.

Earlier this year, a Twitter campaign using the hashtag #LeBronMeetEbony went viral, yes… we did participate too, as social media users from around the world tried to set up a meeting between LeBron James and Ebony Nettles-Bey, a high school basketball player from Wisconsin battling Stage 4 cancer. Saturday, before the Heat’s game against the Bucks in Milwaukee, that meeting happened, as Nettles-Bey met James, led the Heat onto the floor, and warmed up with the team on the court. Additionally, King James wrote her a special message on his LeBron 11 Elite Away PEs saying… #CancerWho and Ebony=Strong. Check out the photos below.

Ever since the introduction of LeBron James’ Playoffs series his shoes were titled as P.S., which stands for Post Season. The first two – LeBron VII P.S. and LeBron 8 P.S. – were slightly cheaper than their regular season counterparts. Two years ago Nike added the Elite tag, which added premium materials, but also boosted the prices… a lot! Now with the LeBron 11, Nike Basketball drops the P.S. label and the new LeBron James Playoffs shoes are simply titled as LEBRON XI Elite. Below, there are a couple of new images showing the retail version of the new Elites, which includes a new White drawer box with multi-colored front. Which version of the new LeBron 11 Elite is your favorite thus far?

Last year, Nike Sportswear introduced the Lifestyle branch of LeBron James’ signature shoes. It was definitely not the first attempt to create a strictly casual oriented shoe under the Nike LeBron brand. Back in 2007, Nike launched the Nike Zoom LeBron Low ST, which did have a decent run. Every once in a while I still get emails from people looking to buy a pair. In 2013, Nike released 4 different colorways of the LeBron X NSW Lifestyle shoes. This season, we’re up to 8 different styles with the LeBron XI NSW Lifestyle, which indicates more focus on casual kicks. The designs are much bolder too… shiny gold BHM’s, Miami Vice, Leopard print, new version of Corks and the presented University Red… all are supposed to draw as much attention as possible. Let us know how do you feel about the ongoing NSW project for King James?
