Time travel: The LeBron XI Prohibition
The Prohibition was a chaotic time. Speakeasies started to pop up for people to secretly socialize, a new breed of gangster emerged and average citizens began to break the law just to have a cocktail at the end of a long day. Amidst all the insanity, fashion took a new direction with slim-cut suits, two-tone, wing-tip shoes and of course hats, which became a must. Since this era is one of the craziest and most memorable in history, it makes sense that Nike would draw inspiration from the Prohibition for the new LeBron XIs. With a bold and unapologetic appearance much like the style of that period, these sneakers scream gangster defiance.
The upper is a dramatic jet black, with the same geometric texture the 11s are known for. Hints of Light Crimson on the laces and tongue lend a nice surprise, while Diffused Jade on the outsole, lining and signature Swoosh offers an unexpected jolt of energy.
If you go could back in time, what era would you pick?
