With the NBA Playoffs rapidly approaching, Nike continues to beef up its Elite Series with possibly its best collection yet. The "Gold Collection" takes the LeBron XI Elite, KD VI Elite and Kobe 9 Elite and outfits them with gold hues, inspired by each player's championship pedigree as they chase another (or for Durant, his first) ring.

The LeBron XI Elite "Gold" features a black upper with red accents around the tongue, inner liner and laces. Gold graces the heel and mid-foot as well as the lacelock, which is in the form of a lion's head.

The Kobe 9 Elite "Gold" sports a predominantly white upper, offset by gray, black and gold.

The KD VI Elite "Gold" features a white upper with exposed Flywire and infrared and gold accents. It also features "35-6" on the tongue.
