Nike Drops Remixed Postseason Kicks For LeBron, Kobe, Durant


ALL BALL NERVE CENTER – With the Playoffs upon us, Nike has is dropping new versions of their signature kicks for some of the NBA’s biggest stars: Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Kevin Durant. And if these guys weren’t already larger than life, Nike wants to make sure you notice that they sure play like it (even if KB24’s on the chilling list, for now). These newly remixed shoes utilize ingredients like Kevlar® aramid, carbon fiber and articulated foam.

As for the respective shoes, The LeBron X PS Elite references the Carbonado diamond, “a virtually indestructible stone said to derive from an ancient supernova, the most explosive force in the universe.” The Kobe 8 System Elite is “inspired by the lethal green pit viper snake and the x-ray vision emitted by its heat-sensing eyes.” And the lowtop KD V ELITE is “illuminated by the sharp glow of lightning bolts. The design speaks to Durant’s versatility, shooting accuracy and finely-tuned court vision.”

All three are available at select retail locations and at Nike.com beginning April 27. Peep the gallery below to check ‘em out…

    With all the injuries that have happened in the last 2 years, I would not allow KD to wear those low-cuts if I were OKC.

  2. master_al says:

    I like Durant’s.

  3. steve says:

    Kobe’s are definitely the best ones

  4. Marcus says:

    Cool concept, but the shoes cost too much.

    LeBrons: $260
    Kobes: $200
    KDs: $180

  5. chong says:

    learn the secret of athleticism, forget about the shoes.

  6. kingofbasketball99 says:

    The designs…. AWFUL. I HATE THE DESIGNING TEAM. EVEN LEBRON’S AND KOBE’S COSTUMES ARE UGLY. ONLY DURANT’S COSTUME IS O.K

  7. kedon says:

    all three kicks go harddddd. translation: aye yoooo, stop playing. with that said, only one question for nike: do the shoes come with the super vests?

  8. TRUTH says:

    I’m sorry but those are some UGLY azz shoes! damn

  9. derp kobe who says:

    lebron’s are the best of the 3 but there isn’t much of a difference between the elite and the regular season

  10. Jimmy Buckets says:

  15. heatcelticswizards says:

    lebrons are sick.

    kobe no wonder yo ankle hurt. u wearin lowtops son.
    kd be careful

  16. ANT chung says:

    I think Lebron’s superhero suit looks the BEST!!!!!! but I think KD’s shoes look simple but good. dislike the splatters of ink on lebron’s shoes. green is not KB24’s colour as well…..

  17. Wall's Wizards says:

    Wearing hi-tops are a false sense of security… The lip on outer sole (by your pinky toe) of your all three shoes it protects from rolling your ankle.

  18. TK says:

    These Shoes look like soccer boots i think Nike is loosing its touch.

  19. Dee Pipes says:

    Why are LeBron’s shoes always so ugly?

  20. Ashwin says:

    Why is Kobe’s Celtic green?

  21. your mom says:

    I like KD’s and even Kobe’s, hate Lebron’s new ones. Maybe they get better looking as they come out with new color combinations, so far I hate ‘em though. Will never sell like jumpmans.

  22. mike says:

    There all ugly. only thing worse than the look of the shoes are the colors.

  23. keemadelphia says:

    All of these sneakers are trash comon man 260 for them lebrons they not even hot and kobe should’ve been learned his lesson about low cut basketball sneaks them duraunts and plane and ugly no way i buy any of em

  24. jghggh says:

    lol poor marketing. Why not shoes representing colors of teams play for? LeBron with the fire, Kobe with sunny rays, Durant with the lightening. I would go with Kobe’s shoes.

  25. tyrell says:

    durant can hoop in any shoes he wear

  26. J2K13 says:

    Nike has failed with all three designs. KB’s are ok.

    I remember a time when KD said he doesn’t want his shoes to cost more than $90. because when he was a kid he could never afford expensive shoes. Now his shoes are double that. Love KD but he just proof the money changes you.

  27. Dwight says:

    I like Kobe’s

  28. Buddy Arabb says:

    CALL ME ‘OLD FASHION’ BUT NOTHING BEATS THE ‘JORDAN RETROS’ ESP 2 TO 6 es

  29. ryan stirtz says:

    kobe should be in the middle of the photo not the left or right! Nike should respect his legacy and pedigree dont center Lebron yet I dont appreciate the subtlety!

  30. isaac says:

    i wouldn’t pay that much for a pair of shoes even if they were the last in the whole world.

  31. pedro says:

    wow… they look like power rangers for real.
    those low cut shoes are dangerous.

  32. GD says:

    KD’s are the best by far, Lebron what were you thinking endorsing these ugly things – and they are the most expensive, no thank you

  33. Dew says:

    KD’s easily the winner here. Other two are just fugly.

  34. joshlakerfanallday says:

    the kobe ones are the best by far .. the outfits thy hav on are sick

  35. TB says:

    Those Lebrons are the best ones, but they got a different cut on the ankle then the rest of the Lebrons, and i dont know if thats all the elites cause the kobes look different to. I dont the the regular kobe 8s got flywire

  36. bam_av says:

    nate robinson needs his own joints nike need to sign him, or team jordan…. but all these shoes are dope!

  37. shadians says:

    Ugliest Kobe outfit ever!!!!

  38. neeks says:

    it doesnt een matter they cant wear these shoes due to uniform regulations. team color ways only!

  39. Sean says:

    The only way I’m spending a single dime on any of these… these… “shoes” is if they actually come with the vests
