The golden ticket or the golden shoe, which one is luckier? Ask NBA star Lebron James and I bet he’ll go with the shoes. At least that’s what he hopes for with the NBA playoffs. Nike accommodated by introducing the Nike Basketball Elite Series footwear featuring the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk, LeBron 9 and Zoom Kobe VII.
‘Light like air, stronger than steel’, the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk, LeBron 9 and Zoom Kobe VII each encompass premium materials used for optimal performance on the court. Both carbon fiber and Kevlar can be found throughout the shoe. Carbon fiber is used in the heel and mid foot for lightweight stability. The use of Kevlar actually helps to minimize the stretch for maximum stability. And the Nike Pro Combat inner sleeve and carbon wing exterior deliver superior protection. And just to top it off perfectly, the designers at Nike made the signature swoosh in gold.
Due to the high-end costs that comes with using these premium materials, Nike has decided to manufacture these in a limited run, also limiting the limit to 2 per person per color. These elite-level shoes aim to give ultimate protection and responsiveness. Get yours now from Nike as they went on sale on April 28 and are sure to run out soon. They range from $200-$250 and are available in both home and away editions. Looks like the Lebron’s will be the most popular, they are already sold out as of this post.
