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…
