FIRST GLANCE: Nike LeBron XI

Spotted on the feet of King James over the weekend, we now have an idea of what LeBron’s next signature sneaker from Nike will entail both in terms of performance and aesthetics.

An even more beefed up version of the LeBron X, the LeBron XI features an asymmetrical design on the upper, as well as a re-worked version of Foampsite material that’s being referred to as Armorposite for foot support and stability. Dynamic Flywire makes its return on the upper, though it’s not quite as visible as it was on previous LeBron models. The biggest noticeable change on the shoe is the lack of a visible full-length Zoom unit. Although, surely there’s got to be Zoom cushioning tucked away somewhere underneath.

The LeBron XI is set for an October 2013 drop, with a price tag of $200 for the base model.
