Playoff time is finally upon us and Nike Basketball’s signature stars LeBron James and Kevin Durant are both chasing one thing, a world championship. With the playoffs promising gold, Nike Basketball unveils the Nike ELITE Series 2.0+ to celebrate its signature players’ achievements in the final stretch to ultimate victory.
On Saturday, April 20th House of Hoops by Foot Locker, Foot Locker and Footlocker.com will release the gold-accented LEBRON X PS ELITE+ ($280) and KD V ELITE+ ($200), which incorporate the most innovative materials and latest design techniques from Nike Basketball. The signature footwear styles draw inspiration from the championship trophy and feature lightweight construction, enhanced fit and dynamic protection.
The design of Nike ELITE Series 2.0+ reflects the moment that matters most to every elite athlete – the run for the championship. The elegant white and black colorways feature a gold Swoosh design and other gold details that vary from shoe to shoe, including athlete logos, gold-flecked Kevlar® aramid laces, gold-threaded Flywire technology and speckled outsoles.
Nike ELITE Series 2.0+ footwear are also enabled with Nike+ Basketball, providing athletes everywhere with a distinct competitive advantage. The Nike+ Basketball enabled shoes sync to an iPhone via Bluetooth, letting players know exactly how high, how quick and how hard they play (when paired with the Nike+ Sport Kit, sold separately) and allows them to track their performance and compete with friends.
