Nike Elite Team Collection (LeBron 11, KD VI, Kobe 9 Elite)

While the playoffs near and the regular season winds down, the real stakes arrive in efforts to crown the next champion of the NBA. The Nike Elite Team Collection consists of footwear designed to the exact specifications of LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant. Using premium materials, advanced construction and athlete insights, Nike Basketball’s design team proudly unveils its most technically advanced trio of signature shoes in one collection.

The LeBron 11 Elite Team edition 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 performance standard of the KOBE 9 Elite Team is second to none, as it’s the first Nike Basketball shoe featuring Flyknit. Definitely a provocative and high-profile sneaker since its announcement at MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) back in December. The KD VI Elite Team moves precisely and naturally with the foot using Flywire technology, reinforced with Kevlar fibers. 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.
