Nike Lebron 11 World Champion Release

Nike Lebron 11 World Champion ReleaseIf 2011 was all about LeBron’s decision to go to Miami, then 2012 was his redemption year. Vilified for his teaming up with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh then losing the the Mavericks in 6 games, the Heat returned with a vengeance with LeBron at the helm. He earned MVP honors, but his work wasn’t done until he defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder in 5 games to hoist the Larry O’Brien Trophy. In honor of his first title, NIKEiD designed the <a href="http://www.widekicks.com/nike-lebron-11-c-99.html/">Nike LeBron 11</a> in an OKC-esque scheme outfitted in shades of Game Royal and Gamma Blue while the Swoosh and dynamic flywire get an orange treatment. Continue onward to get a better look at NIKEiD’s latest custom and let us know what you think of this latest design in the comments.

After eight seasons of scrutiny from every direction, LeBron James added the missing piece to his legacy in 2012 — an NBA championship. Following a lockout-shortened regular season, the Miami Heat battled their way through the postseason, edging by the rival Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals and schooling the upstart Oklahoma City Thunder in the Finals. No longer was LeBron the 'Ringless King.'

Remembering LeBron's first ring, NIKEiD unveils a 'World Champion' colorway of the <a href="http://www.widekicks.com/nike-lebron-11-world-champion-p-3096.html">Nike Lebron 11 World Champion</a>. The colorway is inspired by....well, who knows? Nothing about the shoe's royal base, speckled Gamma Blue Hyperposite and orange accents says Miami or championship, but it's the look they came up with.

After eight seasons under everyones microscope, LeBron finally attained the one part of his legacy that he had been chasing from the beginning. 2012 was indeed the year King James finally lived up to his royal nickname as he and his Miami Heat were crowned NBA Champs that season. While the Durant and Westbrook led OKC Thunder seemed poised to rain on James’s parade, the Heat turned up the temperature on the court and brought some championship hardware back to South Beach. Seeing as how we saw this championship-inspired pair of kicks coming, we definitely didn’t expect this colorway. With LeBrons road to a ring ending with OKC, it appears that this pair of <a href="http://www.widekicks.com/nike-lebron-11-world-champion-p-3096.html">Nike Lebron 11 World Champion Shoes For Sale</a> sports a Thunder-inspired color scheme. Fully equipped with a crisp royal base, this latest NIKEiD creation also sports speckled Gamma Blue Hyperposite sections, along with some vibrant orange accents. Instead of doing a typical gold-filled iteration, Nike subtly reminds everyone, even the Thunder, that they fell at the hands of LeBron. Now that the first ring is covered, you can bet your bottom dollar that the 2013 pair will be dedicated to Brons second ring. All hail the mighty King James.
