With the Miami Heat 14 games into the season, we get the feeling there is something different about the Nike LeBron 11. A little more than one-sixth of the way thru the regular season, LeBron has only worn his latest signature shoe thoughout for a single game.

Riding the current basketball sneaker trend of a three-layered upper, the LeBron 11 features Foamposite panels (called Armorposite) on top of the synthetic upper with mesh underlays. The current LeBron also brings back Zoom Air units and Dynamic Flywire from the previous model and pairs it with a Lunarlon foam for a lightweight-yet-low ride. As this is the most slimmed-down signature released as part of the LeBron series, could this be why he has mostly worn the former X Elite version instead?

Check out 5 NBA players that have worn the Nike LeBron 11 for a full game before LeBron James himself has.

    The shape of the LeBron XI is clearly wrong for LeBron’s feet(they use a mold of his feet, so his feet-issues, aren’t a problem, material use, and shape of the different parts is the problem, it’s why on his latest PE’s the nose has more volume, the mid-foot is higher, and the collar is lowered, making them more like the LeBron X with an XI look), so it’s probably safe to say that the LeBron XI was more about ‘bringing back’ the Flightposite(because they are truly a re-invented Flightposite I, line ‘em up with previous Flightposites, and you’d think they’re simply the latest release) than designing LeBron a signature shoe.

    They should’ve focused on LeBron more for his sig, maybe christen this shoe the LunarZoom Hyperposite 2013, or even the Flightposite IV.

      They need to change the insert by adding the full zoom air on the bottom completely instead of having the lunarlon border. It is lower to the ground and doesn;t have the cushion response. That is the only way to easily fix the problems.
