April 29, 2014 New LEBRON 11 Pays Homage to Florida's Everglades Region View Gallery Taking inspiration from Florida’s wetland ecosystem, the LEBRON 11 Everglades debuts May 17. Florida’s Everglades region is one of the state’s most distinct features and inspires the artistry of the LEBRON 11 Everglades. This two million acre wetland ecosystem spans much of the state and is internationally known for its vibrant landscape and distinct colors. Continuing to take footwear design to new places, the Nike Basketball design team took colors, shapes and textures from the Everglades ecosystem to create a new graphic representing the Everglades region in James’s home team state. The LEBRON 11 upper is built in a new way, featuring Hyperposite technology for lightweight lock-down, while taking protection, containment and responsiveness to a new level. The upper incorporates Nike Hyperfuse construction and dynamic Nike Flywire technology. The LEBRON 11 is the lightest and lowest LeBron signature shoe ever, weighing approximately 14.5 oz in a men’s size 9. Available beginning May 17, the LEBRON 11 Everglades will be available at Nike.com and at select retail stores worldwide.
