The Hornet is Back
In the realm of sneaker genetics, sometimes a colorway skips a generation. So even though we were disappointed that there was no Nike LeBron X Hornets release after the LeBron 9s dropped last year, we're finally getting another taste of this much-anticipated motif.
The LeBron XI Summit Lake Hornet isn't just a reincarnation of what we've seen of this colorway, though. Even though these kicks sport the same traditional Court Purple base, they take things up a notch with a Vivid Blue hexagonal pattern on the fuse with a Crimson splatter that forms an intricate honeycomb design. Reflective silver swooshes and tongue tagging adds some metallic intrigue, and flashes of Vivid Blue pop up again on the liner, outsole and flywire to tie the whole palette together. The print is more than just a dope design, too - it pays homage to LeBron's days playing for the Summit Lake Hornets as a kid.
What do you think of the honeycomb graphic?
