LeBron James has a problem with his new Nike LeBron 11 shoes

LeBron James mediaLeBron James apparently isn’t a fan yet of the latest version of his own Nike shoes.

“I could wear them, but they don’t feel as great as I want them to feel,” James told¬†on Thursday. “So we’re redefining them, and I feel like this next round is going to be perfect.”

James apparently is uncomfortable with the fit of the shoes, the LeBron 11, which are cut lower than previous designs. He has worn the sneakers in only two games so far, according to¬†Before Thursday night’s blowout loss to the Chicago Bulls, James addressed the shoe situation.

“I just want to be able to wear them,” James said, according to “It has been a frustrating process. But obviously, I know that Nike wants to do what’s best. They’re not going to put me out there in harm’s way. So we’re redefining the shoe to fit what’s best for my foot.”

Despite James’ indifference, sales of the LeBron 11, which retail for more than $200, are up 18 percent compared to sales of his LeBron X at this time last year, according to The Wall Street Journal.
