Nike LeBron 11 Officially Unveiled Part 2: "Terracotta Warrior" Mineral Grey/Electric Purple-Mercury Grey-New Green November 2013

Along with the "King's Pride" colorway, we also get an official look at the "Terracotta Warrior" colorway.
This "Terracotta Warrior" edition comes in a mineral grey, electric purple, mercury grey and new green colorway. The story behind this colorway comes from LeBron James being impressed by the Terracotta Warrior Exhibition, which he visited when he was in Xi’An, China, in 2011. The exhibit, plus James’s playing style - which reflects a warrior's spirit of grit, confidence, hard work and determination - inspired the Terracotta Warrior colorway.

The design of the shoe is inspired by the Terracotta Warriors as we see them today -- in neutral stone colors along with pop colors of purple/teal/red to represent how they were originally painted. The graphic texture on the upper articulates the linked, plated armor that the warriors wore. The special lining shank design graphic is drawn from the style of Bronze Age art, the era in which the Terracotta Warriors were made.

To check out the design inspiration and tech information on the LeBron 11, check out Part 1 here.

 They will be available in China in the beginning of October before they make their way to the US and the rest of the world a month later. Look out for them at select Nike accounts worldwide on Wednesday, November 27th, 2013. Retail is set at, $200.
