UPDATE: Nike has revealed the real story behind these summer stunners. The Hyperposite panel design is apparently inspired by 'colours, shapes and textures' from the massive Florida Everglades wetlands. Wonder if LeBron has gone gator watching in there before. It looks like they will arrive in a full GS and adult size run on May 31 from Nike.com and at select retail stores worldwide.
We anointed the Nike LeBron 11 'King's Pride' our sneaker of the year for 2013, even though we missed out in securing pairs in our own sizes because the things sold out so damn quick. We're stoked to see similar vibes from the Pride returning here then, in a new release that has been dubbed the 'Reverse King's Pride'. That name is drawn from the inspiration for the panelling, which looks a lot like the jaw-dropping lining of the King's Pride release. A blacked-out midriff and icy outsole completes the summer stunner, which has shown up mostly in GS sizes, though there appeared to be some big boy pairs at the recent Sneaker Con. Stay tuned as we bring you official release info as it arrives.
