The NBA’s intense Playoff stretch is nearing close and teams are striving to make sure they’re in the hunt for the highly coveted championship. Chasing his third ring, LeBron James plans to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to its first title in franchise history; in doing so Nike is making sure that King James is perfectly outfitted for the challenging run at hand. Announcing the LeBron 13 Elite, the Swoosh has evolved James’ current signature shoe with some crucial upgrades. Throughout the improved silhouette you’ll find a durable Kurim upper which provides a skin-like fit for enhanced flexibility while not compromising durability. Additionally, you’ll also find a Carbon Fiber Shank plate as well as Hexagonal Zoom-Air Units for detailed and responsive cushioning. The red colorway of the LeBron 13 Elite will officially drop on April 14 via Nike’s website and select Nike retailers with additional White and Black colorways releasing May 5 and May 26 respectively.
