We were already pretty sure about this, but the Swoosh has made it official: The Nike LeBron 11 Gamma Blue release date is set for Saturday, November 16.
The striking colorway is inspired by tempered steel which, when brought to extremely high heat, develops an oxidized layer that turns blue. Steel is then forged and retreated, creating a durable, nearly-unbreakable material, a concept that’s mirrored in LeBron’s on-court game.
Light blue Hyperposite panels immediately catch the eye, set against silver solid Hyperfuse trim, which gives way to black mesh through the midfoot. The gradient Swoosh, shifting from yellow to purple to blue, represents the entire spectrum of tempered steel.
Grab the Gamma Blue on shelves in a month, retailing for the usual $200.
