oh boy, bring on the PS's...

If those do in fact incorporate lunarlon to a point whee it won't bottom out easily and they are as light as they say then I am certainly going to get one pair for next season.

really curious about the material between what we presume is foam and what we presume is the fuse/mesh. That middle layer...

I agree. The 8 v1, 2 and 3 are the only lebrons I really like.

Looks like Nike can't find a balance of casual and performance with the Lebron line anymore. I just don't like how Nike uses all of the same tech/materials for the sig lines. Every players sig shoe looks like it can be the team shoe of another players sig shoe.

Anyone think the futuristic look they have now will be considered "casual" when they retro years from now?

I had a few pairs of 10's including crown jewels and sold them off. The 8's are still the best "new" Lebron (as in miami lebron line direction). Like I did with the 9's and 10's i'll probably pick up a a pair or two of these as a fan and then sit and see how my opinion holds up...

Anyway messed around with it, trying to see the possible color blocking options and nike can do more with this than what they did with the Xs:

When I was examining the pic, you can see the flywire in the vents, the midplate, the vents or logo of some sort near the laces and the laces look like the same from the Xs. Outsole is similar looking to the FP1.

Those Iron Mans though smokin.gif. Great job on the mock ups.

Not sure how I feel about these. Look like they could be Lebron Soldiers instead of the XI. They don't look bad, they just don't scream sig to me.

Not gonna' front....I like the 11s but I'm thinking Team Bron Bron incorporated Foam material on the shoe strictly to raise prices to that $200 entry level.

I'll repeat.....Like the shoe, new price tag is a ***** thou.

Wonder how people are gonna wear these causally?

The thing I liked about Jordan and Tinker he actually wanted a shoe to perform on the court but look good off the court

thats why we got shoes like the 11

But LeBron goes after straight performance! I thought they got it right with the 7 & 8 then after that it was like mean.gif

and the fact he prefers his shoes to be bulky which is ok by all means protect your feet and get a shoe built to cope with your body frame but it frustrates me being 5'8 with a size 9 shoes thats feels heavy and bulky

I wonder if they'll do a SVSM and CTK PE for these, or do them under the soldier line again.

Hopefully Nike won't put out a bunch of bright colorways, because these will look best in stealth matte like colorways

Yeah they may look less casual than some of his other sigs, but at the end of the day the right colorways would go a long way in determining how these could be pulled off. It's always about on court performance first and foremost.

You can wear Foamposites casually, right?

Flightposites, Foamposite Max (Duncans), Zoom Rookies, Barkley-Posites etc etc.....

Dudes will have absolutely no problems wearing THESE casually.

Clearly inspired by the Flightposite 1. With that said, I don't see any casual appeal with these. Strictly a basketball shoe like the IX imo. The look of these is geared for more rugged use than the regular Foamposite.

 

Haven't been a fan of the LeBron line since the 8 V1.

 

Also, the LJ logo sucks. I'd rather see the English Lion logo that resembles a 6 than that generic mockup featured on his product.

Yup, we also have people who wear Jordan's to their wedding. People don't care about a shoe "looking casual"

Had the exact same thoughts when I read those comments. Especially with Posite shoes being as popular as they are today, I have no idea where people are getting this "can't wear these casually" thing from laugh.gif

Not sure how they managed to put both zoom air unit and lunar in that shoe...

 

Dramatic change from the vis units. 

 

Liking the colors, but the shoe itself looks too much like a Soldier for me right now.  I'll wait for more pics, more specific spec details and hahahahah ahahahaha the South Beach CW.  LOL  Had to say it...NO I AM NOT SERIOUS!

 

I just like shoes...is that so bad.

It's like they read it from the guy who just posted and they just agree mindlessly. The sky's not blue??? Sounds legit "yeah the sky's not blue!"
post #326 of 81565

Siiiiiigh

$200 for the base model?  mean.gif

Just a couple years ago we were at $160 with the 8s.

 

I will say that I will miss the 360 visible zoom bag.

Actually, the sky is not blue, and has no color. The blue color perceived is the reflection from the ocean.
