In keeping the NIKEiD LeBron XI train moving, it looks like we are ready to show you guys what Nike has created to honor yet another prominent moment in LeBrons career. Having already nabbed just about every major accolade there is to achieve in the game of basketball, LeBron was a key component to the “Reedem Team” capturing the gold medal during the Beijing Olympic games back in ’08. In paying homage to the Kings first gold medal, NIKEiD has created this pair of “Gold Medalist” LeBron XI’s. Sporting a crisp white upper paired with shimmering gold accents, this pair of kicks is more than ready to stand tall about the #1 spot on the podium. Throw in a vibrant red sole and this latest NIKEiD creation boldly holds its head up high with the Star Spangled Banner blaring in the background. With yet another stellar pair of kicks now added to the commemorative fold, we can only imagine what the creative minds over at the Swoosh will put together to recognize 2009, in LeBron terms of course. Seeing as how the Heat will be kicking off their NBA season tonight against the Bulls, don’t be surprised if you see LeBron hit the hardwood in a championship-inspired pair of kicks.
