Saturday, LeBron James broke out a new Nike “Dunkman” model for the Eastern Conference’s All-Star practice. Later on Saturday afternoon, LeBron confirmed with SLAM during his appearance at a local Boys & Girls Club in nearby Gretna, LA that this is indeed a first look at the Nike LeBron 11 Low. Check out the photo, via @geokthree of Nice Kicks:

    anyone have any opinion on low tops vs high top sneaks for hooping? Last yr i torn my ACL wearing high tops this year i started hooping again minimally with low top running shoes but kinda liked the less restriction they provided. With the high tops i noticed your leg is kinda locked in when you tie the laces and you don’t get that same type of free motion, then i noticed kobe was playing in low tops, kd plays in low tops i think and now lebron is making the switch? any opinions are helpful…

    Kobe wears low-cuts cause like you said there is less restriction, he was looking at Soccer and felt that they moved and made just as many fast cuts as ball players do but they don’t necessarily get injured more frequently. So if you like the low-cuts I don’t think there is a problem with sticking with them if Kobe thinks they’re okay.

    However if you play PF or C I think the high-cuts would be a better cause you might roll your ankle or step on someones foot when you come down from a rebound/shot in which case you might want that extra support. Plus you’re not making as many cuts.

    Low cuts are fine. It’s not the height, it’s the support. If it keeps your heel locked in and has support you’re golden. That’s why I love the Kobe’s. Only shoe I hoop in & I’m a hoop addict.

    Personal Opinion only- and I usually do play post- I can’t see myself ever wearing a low top. It’s probably just a mental thing though. Injuries happen, I think more so from not being warmed up, or stretched out. If your ankle is gonna roll, its gonna roll, so wear what’s good to you, just as long as you keep hoopin!

    there is no data to support that the height of a shoe makes any difference. wear what is comfortable. (new) Nike’s generally have the best sole of the shoe and technology in its padding to help prevent ankle turns and minimize stress from landing/running. but the height of the shoe won’t make a difference. if you wear ankle braces, lowtops in my experience are most comfortable.

    I used to always wear high-tops because I thought that is what you are supposed to do, then I got the Kobe V and they felt better than all my previous shoes. Now I always get low-tops. Just warm up, stretch and RICE(rest, ice, compress, elevate) if you do twist your ankle and you should be fine.
