LeBron Talks About Not Wearing His Nike LeBron 11 Shoes
Lebron was quoted on talking about the elephant in the room, why he isn’t wearing his Lebron 11 sneakers. We covered this awhile ago whit speculation that the shoes didn’t play well with his orthopedics, lebron didn’t mention anything about that, but it does sound like they will b redesigning them so they fit better, I am guessing something with more forefoot room since it is currently very snug. Having a removable midsole might have been a bad move for Lebron at least. One thing is for sure, the lack of Lebron wearing the shoes is not affecting sales, Lebron 11s have been selling extremely well.
“I just want to be able to wear them,” James told ESPN.com. “It has been a frustrating process. But obviously, I know that Nike wants to do what’s best. They’re not going to put me out there in harm’s way. So we’re redefining the shoe to fit what’s best for my foot.”
“I could wear them, but they don’t feel as great as I want them to feel,” James said. “So we’re redefining them, and I feel like this next round is going to be perfect.”
Per Nike the Lebron 11 is the most innovative shoe to date:
“The LeBron 11 is one of the most innovative Nike basketball shoes to date, and we look forward to LeBron stepping back on the court in his latest signature shoe soon,” Nike spokesman Brian Strong said in a statement.
