    Nike celebrates the long and ongoing collaboration with LeBron James and the release of the latest shoe model (LeBron 11) of the basketball star with a striking micro-website. The use of Albertus for the headings of each chapter and Nitti for the rest of the text accents the geometric graphics.

      Albertus is a typeface that really requires kerning — especially around its ‘A’ and ‘T’. Words like GREATNESS and GENERATION are dramatically improved when kerning is enabled through text-rendering: optimizeLegibility.

      Keep in mind, though, that, according to Elliot Jay Stocks, text-rendering: optimizeLegibility

      isn’t an official CSS property and in theory could become unsupported at any time. It’s also been known to cause a few issues.

      The more future-proof, powerful, and safer way of turning on kerning is to use the font-feature-settings property.
