Nike LeBron 11 (Atomic Orange)
UPDATE: These LBJ joints are now open to be picked up and placed in shopping carts at SoleHeaven.
The Nike LeBron 11 continues to sell its laces off in stores even though LBJ himself isn't wearing them on court consistently. There's murmurings that a redesign of the silhouette is coming for King James and will flow on to his disciples, but we hope we still see this model continue to ride the colour spectrum with new releases because it's a real stunner. There's a little bit of debate over what this colourway is all about, Marquee Sole, who are selling this beast early, have dubbed it the 'New York Knicks', while EU Kicks are claiming it as a retro Cleveland Cavaliers rendition because of this 'Hardwood Classic' LeBron X Low. Clever sleuthing, EU, but we're gonna sit on the courtside fence and just call it 'Atomic Orange', because that's what we're mainly seeing – plus, LeBron repped the Cavs in the modern uniform that didn't look much like this, and he doesn't have a real connection to the Knickerbockers other than being really desired by them. Furthermore, Nike has never been really rigorous with sneaker storytelling when it comes to the LeBron compared to the KD VI and the 'muses' that will inspire Kobe 9 colourways – the design team seem happy to belt out combos that just look good and have no rhyme or reason behind them. That's where this bright and bold number probably falls, and it's available in a couple of sizes for big dollars at MS now. We'll let you know when it gets a wider drop.
