Premium Standard: Nike Basketball Elite Series Gold Collection

As the quest for the trophy begins with the playoffs, the LEBRON 11, KOBE 9 and KD VI undergo fitting tributes.

As the playoffs begin on April 19, every game becomes increasingly worth its weight in gold.

LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant represent Nike Basketball’s gold standard. Their collective commitment, work ethic and winning ways have resulted in seven world championship trophies with their sights set on more to come. The Nike Basketball Elite Series Gold Collection is designed to their championship specifications.

Gold hues, premium materials, advanced construction and athlete insights inform this advanced trio of signature shoes in a single collection featuring the LEBRON 11 Elite, KOBE 9 Elite and KD VI Elite.   

LEBRON 11 ELITE GOLD

Designed to fit the reigning MVP and world champ’s game, the LEBRON 11 Elite Gold edition is strong and sleek, all in black and set off by gold-colored detailing.  The shoe represents an evolution of the LEBRON 11, now with a lower cut and new articulated external cage to keep him contained for the playoffs. The Hyperposite protection and dynamic Flywire fiber in the upper combine with Lunarlon cushioning and a Nike Zoom unit in the midsole to maximize performance.

KOBE 9 ELITE GOLD

The KOBE 9 Elite is the brand’s first basketball shoe featuring Flyknit, which defies conventional shoe manufacturing processes by creating a one-piece engineered upper made from single strands of yarn.  The KOBE 9 Elite Gold sports a white upper with gray, black and gold details throughout. Designed by Eric Avar as Bryant’s most provocative shoe to date, it maximizes innovation with Lunarlon, dynamic Flywire and carbon fiber throughout.

KD VI ELITE GOLD

For the first time in a KD signature shoe, this new Elite version boasts a full-length, visible Nike Zoom unit that runs through the entire midsole. Maximizing breathability and strength, the KD VI Elite Gold moves precisely and naturally with the foot while featuring new design details such as a ’35-6’ logo on the shoe’s tongue. This primarily white shoe features Flywire technology, reinforced with Kevlar® aramid fibers, providing Durant with lockdown support fitting for scoring champs. 

The Nike Basketball Elite Series Gold Collection is available June 6 at Nike.com and select retail locations globally.
