This weekend isn’t going to get any easier for sneakerheads it seems. The Nike LeBron 11 ‘Summit Lake Hornets’ drops Saturday so tough decisions will have to be made. Part of the popularity of the shoe stems from the similarities in colors to the old school Charlotte Hornets team. Not to mention the Jordan 8 ‘Aquas.’ This time around the LeBrons look like a mashup between a Decepticon and Tron.
The geometric lines depicting hornet wings are all over the upper and the atomic pink speckles add depth and give that familiarity of a ‘Galaxy’ based shoe. At first glance we just thought they looked like Energon cubes, or a re-purposed playing field from Tron. Possibly the loudest LeBron 11 release yet, these joints use complementary colors to pull off a solid albeit wild use of shapes and patterns.
