LEBRON 11 KING’S PRIDE colorway

James plays with fearlessness, determination and the heart of a lion. The King’s Pride colorway draws inspiration from the lion–its dark loden upper color and the floral print on the collar lining reflect the pride of the wildlife.

LEBRON 11 TERRACOTTA WARRIOR colorway

James was impressed by the Terracotta Warrior Exhibition which he visited when he was in Xi’An, China, in 2011. The exhibit, plus James’s playing style–which reflects a warrior with grit, confidence, hard work and determination–inspired the Terracotta Warrior colorway. The design of the shoe is inspired by the Terracotta Warriors as we see them today—in neutral stone colors along with pop colors of purple/teal/red to represent how they were originally painted. The graphic texture on the upper articulates the linked, plated armor that the warriors wore.
