For Sole Collector's latest "Everything You Should Know" episode, the SC team features the Nike Basketball's Elite Series

Having started in 2012, the three original models in the collection were the Nike Zoom Kobe 7, the Nike Hyperdunk 2011, and the Nike LeBron IX. The Elites were based on Nike Basketball's best selling models for the season and featured upgraded materials and technology to help aid the player's push for the NBA playoff run. In succeeding collections, the Hyperdunks were replaced by the Nike KD series, and now the Elites feature the signature models of Nike Basketball's three top athletes, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, and Kevin Durant.

Watch as the SC guys break down each season of the Elites and the materials that make up each model. The team also takes a closer at this year's collection, which released this past weekend, highlighting the upgrades and differences that all sneakerheads and basketball enthusiasts would appreciate.
