Nike Basketball has unveiled their new “Elite Series” of sneakers that bring about advances in lightweight construction, enhanced fit, dynamic protection and distinctive colors. The Nike Kobe VII, Nike Zoom Hyperdunk and LeBron 9 will all be available in both black and white colorways. What’s dope about them, besides the technology, is that each style worn on court will initially display a special white Swoosh Design. But as the NBA playoffs approach, Nike will celebrate the player’s achievements by replacing the white Swoosh with a gold one.

All three sneakers feature mid-foot shanks and heel counters made of carbon fiber. There’s also the Nike Pro Combat inspired padded collar protection, which is made of molded and articulated form, and strategically placed along the tongue and innersleeves.

The series also had a special sock liner – which combines 3D anatomical fit with non-slip print – for internal traction.

All three Nike Basketball Elite Series shoes – the Nike Kobe VII, Nike Zoom Hyperdunk and LeBron 9 – are available at retail and at www.nikestore.com beginning April 28, 2012.
