MY BLUE SUEDE KICKS. The Lebron XI is a crazy shoe. It looks like a transformer. Something straight out of the movies.With the Lebron XI suede EXT it’s much more toned-down. Looks more like a grown man shoe which is what I think Nike is trying to do here. I like how they went with an overall monotone look. All blue suede shoe. The fabric they used for this shoe is actually more a of a sport suede – it has more of a microfiber tencel fabric feel to it. It’s not as thick and rough as actual suede I’ve seen used on previous Nikes.
I’m a big fan of blue shoes – especially all blue. The last shoe I can remember that was all blue that I was hyped on was the T- 19 Nike SB Dunk High. But I think these Lebrons take the cake. The all blue suede make up on the Lebron XI takes away from the Transformer look. The leather liner and waxed shoe laces definitely call for a more casual shoe than an on-court sporty feel. Can’t wait to see what other make ups they bring to the table after these. Look for these to drop soon.
