Nike officially revealed the Nike LeBron 11 colorway that LeBron James will be wearing for the 2014 NBA All-Star Game on Tuesday. Called the "Gator King," the shoe calls to mind the majestic image and influence the gator has on New Orleans culture.
Inspired by the king of the bayou, gator imagery can be found in graphics all throughout the shoe along with hand-drawn patterns that can only be seen when the Hyperposite material is made to glow in the dark, giving it a rich light green hue. Colors on the shoe include deep purple in gold, calling to mind the recently revealed 2014 Nike Black History Month collection, but also green and red as they inspired "Rex", who is also known as the king of carnival celebrations.
The Nike LeBron 11 "Gator King" along with the rest of the 2014 Nike NBA All-Star Game Collection will be available at Nike.com and select retail locations on Friday, February 14. Price for each shoe and exact locations have not been revealed at this time.
