1. Nike LeBron XI “King’s Pride”
To start of the list, we have to go with one of the first LeBron 11 colorways to be released, the LeBron 11 “King’s Pride” colorway. It was released in October 2013. The inspiration for the King’s Pride colorway comes from the King of the Jungle. The shoe is inspired by some of the traits LeBron shares with a lion, namely; speed, power, agility and bravery. The floral lining on the collar is a reflection of the jungle theme. The lion theme was continued with the Nike LeBron 12 which has a ‘Heart of a Lion’ colorway.
2. Nike LeBron XI “Gamma Blue”
For our second colorway we choose one of the other early releases, the Nike LeBron XI “Gamma Blue” colorway. This shoe was released globally in November 2013. Nike and Jordan were bringing out a lot of Gamma Blue colorways around this time. These have a armory slate grey and gamma blue upper, and a fluorescent blue Nike swoosh.
3. Nike LeBron XI “Miami Heat Away”
The Nike LeBron XI “Miami Heat Away” colorway obviously takes its inspiration from LeBron’s team colors. This was another of the Nike LeBron 11 releases from 2013. They have the simple black and shiny red upper. These are one of the simpler looking Lebrons, yet they still seem to pop, and have a very classic color combination of red and black.
4. Nike LeBron XI “Miami Nights”
The Nike LeBron 11 Miami Nights colorway came out in November of 2013. At this time it was also sometimes referred to as the LeBron 11 “Carbon Fiber” colorway.
