LeBron James Speaks Out on Not Wearing the LeBron 11

If you’ve been watching any of the Miami Heat games this season, you may have noticed that LeBron James hasn’t really been putting his eleventh signature shoe to use. Having only worn his new shoe for two complete games this season, it seemed like as fast as James would start the game in the LeBron XI model was as fast as he would revert back to the LeBron X. Although the Bron XI continues to outperform the LeBron X on the retail level, this obvious lack of use has raised quite a few concerns. In speaking with ESPN correspondent Darren Rovell, James finally cleared the air on why he hasn’t been wearing the shoe. “It has been a frustrating process. But obviously, I know that Nike wants to do what’s best. They’re not going to put me out there in harm’s way. So we’re redefining the shoe to fit what’s best for my foot.”

James went on to say that the creative minds over at Nike Basketball are working to redefine the shoe in order to provide him with a better fit. Now that the King has spoken on the issue, does this affect your perception of the LeBron XI? Join the discussion below and be sure to keep rocking with SneakerFiles for more information.
