LeBron 11 Elite Gold – $ 275
Designed to fit the reigning MVP and world champ’s game, the LEBRON 11 Elite Gold edition is strong and sleek, all in black and set off by gold-colored detailing. 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 playoffs. 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.
Kobe 9 Elite Gold – $ 225
The KOBE 9 Elite is the brand’s first basketball shoe featuring Flyknit, which defies conventional shoe manufacturing processes by creating a one-piece engineered upper made from single strands of yarn. The KOBE 9 Elite Gold sports a white upper with gray, black and gold details throughout. Designed by Eric Avar as Bryant’s most provocative shoe to date, it maximizes innovation with Lunarlon, dynamic Flywire and carbon fiber throughout.
KD VI Elite Gold – $ 200
For the first time in a KD signature shoe, this new Elite version boasts a full-length, visible Nike Zoom unit that runs through the entire midsole. Maximizing breathability and strength, the KD VI Elite Gold moves precisely and naturally with the foot while featuring new design details such as a ’35-6’ logo on the shoe’s tongue. This primarily white shoe features Flywire technology, reinforced with Kevlar® aramid fibers, providing Durant with lockdown support fitting for scoring champs.
The Kobe 9 Elite has been nothing short of high-profile since its announcement and release, and to continue the wave, the Nike Kobe 9 EM University Gold has been revealed. The sneaker is the first “low” adaption of the Kobe 9 Elite, and features a university gold upper with black and laser crimson accents. Its Engineered Mesh upper and an interior lining comprised of contouring mesh provides for lightweight ventilation and a comfortable fit.
Available online only on Saturday.
The Nike Zoom Kobe Venomenon 4 brings Hyperfuse and Flywire together on the upper, supported by Zoom cushioning. The sneaker carries black as its dominant color, with dark grey helping out on the lace fixture, eyelets, inner lining, heel counter and toebox detail. Hits of gold and crimson provide pop on the logos, laces, lower Flywire cables and outsole. For ballers who like to take their game outdoors, the outsole has an abrasion-resistant material with Blade pattern for enhanced traction.
Available in stores and online Saturday.
