Science nerds, basketball heads and sneaker collectors will love to hear more about the Nike LeBron 11 collection set to drop in a few weeks. These kicks have gained a lot of attention over the past few months, and Nike is introducing an entirely new 'Gamma Blue' colorway for fans to feast on.

These kicks come just a few weeks before the start of the NBA season, and this colorway is certainly one we will see on athletes this year. The 'Gamme Blue' features a silver blue steel colorway which is inspired by the oxide layer that forms over steel when heated to extreme temperatures.

The matted light blue and Hyperposite plates keep this sneaker looking super slick, while a second silver layer mars the outsole and areas of the upper. The interior sticks with a classic black, keeping the theme of the 11s super-powered basketball technology that stays classy. Stats for Gamma Ray Basketball Sneakers Trending: This Year & Buzzing
