This year’s Nike Basketball Elite series unveiled with the “Team Collection”. This was something new as the last two elite markups started with black/gold and white/gold colorways. Now Nike reverts back to the gold laden colorways with the new Nike Basketball Elite Series Gold Collection. With playoff implications for two of the sig holders they’re releasing at a pristine time. The Nike Lebron 11 Elite, Nike Kobe 9 Elite, and new upstart Nike KD 6 Elite will all see some form of gold don their uppers. Nike gave an official synopsis of the new pack stating…
“As the playoffs begin on April 19, every game becomes increasingly worth its weight in gold.
LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant represent Nike Basketball’s gold standard. Their collective commitment, work ethic and winning ways have resulted in seven world championship trophies with their sights set on more to come. The Nike Basketball Elite Series Gold Collection is designed to their championship specifications.
Gold hues, premium materials, advanced construction and athlete insights inform this advanced trio of signature shoes in a single collection featuring the LEBRON 11 Elite, KOBE 9 Elite and KD VI Elite.”
The “Gold Collection” is set to release at the beginning of the summer on June 6th. Officially pricing has not been set just yet but as the information becomes available we’ll have it for you. Keep it locked to FATKIDS®.
