LEBRON 11 ELITE TEAM
James’s physique and powerful play require a shoe that can withstand extreme torque and pressure, while maintaining breathability and a lightweight feel. The LEBRON 11 Elite Team edition is tailored to James’s game and is lightweight, sleek and strong. It represents an evolution of the LEBRON 11 that launched in October, now with a lower cut and new articulated external cage to keep him contained. The Hyperposite protection and dynamic Flywire in the upper combine with Lunarlon and a Nike Zoom unit in the midsole to maximize performance.
KOBE 9 ELITE TEAM
The performance standard of the KOBE 9 Elite Team is second to none. Originally launched at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles last December, the KOBE 9 Elite Team represents Bryant’s most provocative shoe to date. As the first Nike Basketball shoe featuring Flyknit, the KOBE 9 Elite Team maximizes innovation with Lunarlon, Dynamic Flywire and carbon fiber throughout. Its ultra-lightweight design enables natural motion, while providing the lockdown and responsiveness Bryant requires.
KD VI ELITE TEAM
Kevin Durant’s initial response to the KD VI Elite Team says it all – he didn’t want to take them off. Shedding weight and increasing breathability, the KD VI Elite Team moves precisely and naturally with the foot. For the first time in a KD signature shoe, this new version boasts a full-length, visible Nike Zoom unit that runs through the entire midsole. Flywire technology, reinforced with Kevlar fibers, provides Durant with optimal lockdown. Designer Leo Chang’s vision to mimic the precision craftsmanship and fine details of a wristwatch are visually revealed in the KD VI Elite Team.
