LEBRON 11: Akron vs. Miami & Miami Nights

LeBron James’s past and present collide with the LEBRON 11 Akron vs. Miami and LEBRON 11 Miami Nights. The two new colorways celebrate James's journey from Akron, the city where he was born to Miami, the city that has embraced him.

A unique use of color gives the LEBRON 11 Akron vs. Miami a depth of personality that captures the essence of James. Shades of blue represent Akron’s working-class, blue-collar roots, while pink accents symbolize the city he currently calls home.

James sees Akron as the start of everything for him:

 "It's my birthplace — it's how I learned to play the game of basketball. I'll always praise Akron."

Miami has been the muse for some of the most sought-after LEBRON signature shoes. The LEBRON 11 Miami Nights features blasts of neon pink that cut through the dark hues representing the lights the brighten up the city at night. The visual effect of the Nike Hyperposite technology featured on the LEBRON 11 is amplified with a carbon fiber effect treatment. 

No matter where James is be it Akron, Miami or beyond—his journey to greatness continues.

Both editions will be available globally at select retail locations and The LEBRON 11 Akron vs. Miami will be available on Dec. 7 and the LEBRON 11 Miami Nights on Dec. 14.
