Don’t mind DeAndre Jordan in his Halloween costume as we couldn’t help but realize that the LeBron XI Elite “Hero Collection” resembles Captain Planet. If you may recall Captain Planet was from the early ‘90s but we’ll save that conversation for another day.
It seems like LeBron only sits when his nose gets injured which is ironically quite frequent or if he’s resting and waiting for the playoffs to begin. LeBron has been playing on another level the past few years and Nike has done its best to keep him on the court.
It is quite easy to compare the 2 time NBA champion, LeBron James to a superhero. His muscular frame, athleticism, speed, and energy are unmatched by his competitors. It’s quite insane that he possess all of these characteristics. The LeBron XI “Hero Collection” features a bright red crimson infused with a turbo green, gold, and black accents.
From Nike’s description:
The LEBRON 11 Elite Hero edition is tailored to James’s game and is sleek and strong, all in a laser crimson color. The shoe represents an evolution of the LEBRON 11, now with a lower cut and new articulated external cage to keep him contained for the playoff run. The Hyperposite protection and dynamic Flywire fiber in the upper combine with Lunarlon cushioning and a Nike Zoom unit in the midsole to maximize performance.
The LeBron XI “Hero Collection” will release along with it’s counterparts online on Friday, May 9, 2014. Prepare yourself since it’s whopping retail price tag is $275.
