New from Nike Basketball comes the Elite Series 2.0, a line of superhero armor-inspired sneakers for LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant’s postseason action.

Each of the aforementioned players gets updated versions of the signature sneakers, with an emphasis on protection and enhanced strength-to-weight ratios. These updates also entail new materials like Kevlar aramid, articulated foam, and carbon fiber.

Release details are scare for now, but you can see some promotional images of the Nike Basketball Elite Series 2.0 in the gallery above. These include close-ups of the shoes, as well as shots of LeBron, Kobe and KD in their (purely fictional, unfortunately) superhero duds. Maybe these guys will start fighting crime once the 2012-13 NBA season is over.
