Fictional heroes take on superhuman characteristics in comics, films, books and television. From speed, strength, vision and intellect these heroes rise to the challenge when the pressure’s greatest. LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant are real-life heroes that electrify the basketball universe. The Nike Basketball Elite Series Hero Collection represents the best for the best: footwear designed to the superhuman specifications of James, Bryant and Durant.
Prolific colors, premium materials, advanced construction and athlete insights inform this advanced trio of signature shoes in one collection featuring the LEBRON 11 Elite, KOBE 9 Elite and KD VI Elite, all in hues representing the superhuman skills each brings to the court.
The LEBRON 11 Elite Hero edition is tailored to James’s game and is sleek and strong, all in a laser crimson color. 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 playoff run. 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.
