Weekend Rewind: Need to catch another look at the top weekend releases in basketball footwear or just catching up in general? BMF’s Weekend Rewind gives you a brief recap in the best performance and lifestyle sneakers to drop, ranging from Nike to Jordan to adidas and more.
It’s become a part of the LeBron James history that he played for a team located in the Akron area that was nicknamed the “Hornets” as a child. Who knew that he would become a man some two decades later that would have his own shoe made honoring those same Hornets? In light of the NBA’s own Charlotte Hornets coming in 2014-2015, courtesy of Michael Jordan’s Charlotte Bobcats’ renaming, the heritage of James is being celebrated in the Nike LeBron 11 ‘Court Purple’, just recently released.

The LeBron 11 features Hyperposite construction with ultra-lightweight Flywire cables – designed to move naturally with your foot and enhance support and lockdown when you need it. A full-length Lunarlon midsole sits above a Nike Zoom unit for maximum cushioning. With Court Purple uppers and a Vivid Blue hexagon graphic, the latest colorway of the LeBron 11 is inspired by a look to the past.
