With the Regular Season coming to an end and the Playoffs in a couple of days, Nike Basketball aims a couple notches higher and unveils the Nike ELITE Series 2.0+. The gold-accented LEBRON X PS ELITE, KOBE 8 SYSTEM ELITE and KD V ELITE incorporate the most innovative materials and design techniques. The signature footwear draw inspiration from the championship trophy and feature lightweight construction enhanced fit and dynamic protection.
Similar to last year’s Elite line, the design of Nike ELITE Series 2.0+ reflects the moment that matters most to every elite athlete – the run for the championship. The elegant white and black colorways feature a gold Swoosh design and other gold details that vary from shoe to shoe, including athlete logos, gold-flecked Kevlar® aramid laces, gold-threaded Flywire technology and speckled outsoles.
What separates this year’s ELITE line is that all pairs are Nike+ Basketball enabled. The Nike+ Basketball enabled shoes sync to an iPhone via Bluetooth, letting players know exactly how high, how quick and how hard they play (when paired with the Nike+ Sport Kit, sold separately) and allows them to track their performance and compete with friends. The Nike+ Basketball app was recently updated to include a number of new features including Intensity, Game Breakdown, Activity History and All Access. Learn more and download the app.
All three Nike ELITE Series 2.0 basketball shoes will be available starting May 18 at select Nike Only Stores (NOS), Titan, Toby’s and Planet Sports. The Kobe 8 Sytem Elite will retail at PHP 9,995, LeBron X Elite at PHP 11,995 and KD V Elite at PHP 8,495. This year’s Elite pack that will be available locally will NOT include the Sport Pack and will not be Nike+ Enabled.
