Nike wants to see LeBron tearing up the league in the Nike LeBron 11 just as much as you do.
According to ESPN Sports Business Reporter Darren Rovell, Nike has formally acknowledged the LeBron 11’s glaring absence from LeBron James’ feet, issuing a statement through spokesman Brian Strong.
The LeBron 11 is one of the most innovative Nike basketball shoes to date, and we look forward to LeBron stepping back on the court in his latest signature shoe soon.
James, too, is eager to see his feet back on the court in the LeBron 11, once the shoe’s fit has been properly adjusted.
“I just want to be able to wear them,” James told ESPN.com. “It has been a frustrating process. But obviously, I know that Nike wants to do what’s best. They’re not going to put me out there in harm’s way. So we’re redefining the shoe to fit what’s best for my foot.”
“I could wear [LeBron 11], but they don’t feel as great as I want them to feel,” James said. “So we’re redefining them, and I feel like this next round is going to be perfect.”
James last wore the Nike LeBron 11 — briefly, before switching to LeBron X Elite — on November 27 in a 95-84 road win in Cleveland. Before that, November 25 in a 107-92 home win over Phoenix and November 12 in a 118-95 home win over Milwaukee.
