  Nike unveiled their new Elite Series 2.0 labeling them the “Hero Collection”.  KD, Kobe and Lebron each get a “Hero” color way to “represent the superhuman skills each brings to the court,” according to Nike. LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant are real-life heroes that electrify the basketball universe.  The Nike Basketball Elite Series Hero Collection represents the best for the best: footwear designed to the superhuman specifications of James, Bryant and Durant. The shoes are set to release May 9th, giving Spring weather time to show up so you can wear these out!   The Lebron 11 Elite Hero edition is tailored to James’s game and is sleek and strong, all in a laser crimson color. Now with a lower cut and new articulated external cage to keep him contained for the playoff run. The Kobe 9 Elite Hero sports a wolf grey upper and pop art inspired camouflage on the heel area. (Have already been released since Dec.)  It maximizes innovation with Lunarlon, dynamic Flywire and carbon fiber throughout, while its ultra-lightweight design enables natural motion. Designer Leo Chang’s vision to mimic the precision craftsmanship and fine details of a wristwatch are visually revealed in the KD VI Elite Hero. This turbo green colored shoe features Flywire technology, reinforced with Kevlar® aramid fibers, providing Durant with lockdown support for his versatile style of play. What do you guys think? Which one will you be rocking this Summer? Im liking the KD!
