The many stories of LeBron James’ life and career are often telling and poignant, if not at least insightful about why he is who and what he is. He’s a champion who has been world-tested since his teenage years, accumulating years of life experience along the way and becoming a stronger player in the process. What better way to describe James than being as strong as iron? Nike has taken that insight of James and made it come to life in the LeBron 11 signature shoe.
Sneaker Report has covered some of the most eye-catching versions of the LeBron 11, and this version is no different. Though accented in bright oranges and gold (signifying molten iron at extremely high temperatures), the LeBron 11 is still a world-beating performer. In such bright hues, James’ shoe makes the performance attributes even more highlighted. The Hyperposite upper protects The King and segmented in key zones for flexion and outside protection. It is augmented with a full drop-in midsole/insole that is composed of Lunarlon foam and a full-length Zoom Air unit for total comfort, impact protection, and the top cushioning Nike offers. Even more? Beneath the Hyperposite upper is Dynamic Flywire cables that extend from underneath and around the foot to the eyestay, ensuring a snug, customized fit. You’re assured to have a premium performance experience.
The Nike LeBron 11 Forging Iron edition will be available in November.
