Nike Basketball Elite Series 2.0 (KICKS)

Superhero-inspired Kobe 8, LeBron X and KD V.

Meet the second generation of the Nike Basketball Elite Series, featuring superhero-inspired versions of the Nike LeBron X, the KD V and the Kobe 8 System. The trio of advanced kicks use lightweight construction, dynamic fit and increased protection. Similar to last year’s Elite series, there’s an infusion of Kevlar and Carbon fiber armor.

The LeBron X PS Elite is inspired by the rare Carbonado diamond, a virtually indestructible sneaker with bright “citrus” colorway. The Kobe 8 System Elite poison green colorway is inspired by the green pit viper snake and its x-ray vision, heat-sensing eyes. And the Nike KD V Elite joins the Elite series with a low-cut, volt colorway model of Kevin Durant’s latest sig.

This year’s Nike Basketball Elite Series 2.0 is set to hit retailers starting April 28.

    I thought the Elite line had a specific color scheme of white black gold ? I really thought they were going with a clean look and theme with the white/black/gold colorways, that’s the only thing that made these Elite series special…. now they just blend in with the rest of the funky 1990′s flashy colored shoes….

    I have 4 Elite shoes from last years, home and away Lebrons, and home and away Kobe’s….. I’m in Canada so I don’t even wanna tell yall how much I paid for all of them….
    the Kobe’s are absolute garbage and rip in various places, I only use them for walking around, the LeBrons I still play in them they’re holding up real well except the Gold logos, the one in the inside I had to rip off the shoe and on the outside I had to use gold nail polish to repaint it, color chips off so easily, after like a few games….. shoe laces are supposed to be kevlar (bulletproof material) yet they’ve ripped on all of my shoes…..
    and the Hyperdunk Elites, material felt sooooo cheap I didn’t even buy them, and it showed when on the first game Blake Griffin wore them last year, they literally ripped apart at the toe area in the first quarter of play… badly, like you could fit your hand through the front of the shoe…

    I hope they at least improved on the quality and durability of these new elites
