Shoe Game keeps you involved and is more than just simply a compilation of Jordan release dates. We want to make sure our readers, especially all the hoopers, know well in advance of the latest and greatest shoe drops on the market.
LeBron James has cemented himself as an icon in sports and has become hands-down the best player on the planet and NIKE has been right there for the ride. For far too long though, I personally thought LBJ’s shoes were too heavy and bulky, but when you are 270+ pounds and can run like him it probably does not matter.
The new LeBron 11 shoes are the lightest and lowest LeBrons yet, mainly due to the new Nike Hyperposite and Hyperfuse construction features. Via SLAM ONLINE, it weighs approximately 14.5 oz in a men’s size 9.
The first two colorways for the new LeBron 11 shoes will be released on October 12th and feature a $200 price point.

The number 11 represents new beginnings and is a step beyond a celebrated tenure. Starting his 11thyear in the league, with two gold medals, two championship rings and four MVP trophies, LeBron James continues to succeed by constantly improving his game.
Designed to provide a protective suit for James’s unique style of play, the LEBRON 11 encompasses the duality of powerful precision. It is James’s lightest signature shoe to-date, while offering the protective feel, responsiveness and containment his game requires.
