The “What the LeBron” 11 was one of these rare cases when Nike decided to make their energy colorway available to public in decent numbers. Basically, those who wanted a pair… got it without paying extra. This Nike LeBron commemorative design is one of those items that looks better sitting deadstock as a collector’s item instead of wearing it. I don’t say that very often because all shoes are meant to be worn. This is the exception, but not for DeMarcus Cousins of the Sacramento Kings, who decided to lace up a pair last night vs. the Memphis Grizzlies. Cousins is an avid Nike LeBron fan and has a strong relationship with the LeBron XI. Check out the close ups below.

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.

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.

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.

After Nike cancelled the initial May 31st release, we’re now in the dark as to when exactly Nike plans to release the Nike LeBron 11 “What the LeBron”.

The left shoe sports a riotous clash of graffiti, tropical and Fruity Pebbles-inspired graphics, a multicolored sole, and a red toecap with yellow Swoosh.

It’s still unclear if Nike decides to release the “What the LeBron” 11 as a General Release, or limited release, or make them unattainable like MVP and/or Championship packs. For LeBron James it doesn’t matter… he decided to wear his pair during yesterday’s practice. Nice to see him wearing the LeBron XI, for a change.

According to Nike’s official launch information for the What the LeBron XI was supposed to be released this weekend. However, the shoes have been taken down from their release calendar, and with the Everglades being pushed back, it’s highly unlikely to get them on May 31st… as planned originally. Earlier today, Footlocker Canada twitted about the WTL LeBron 11’s dropping this Saturday for $250, but maybe they didn’t get the memo on the delay like other sites. Stay tuned for more information.
