Despite being the secondary series for LeBron James, the Zoom Soldier VIII is still one of the best shoes in the game. Last season, the Soldier 7 overshadowed the LeBron 11 and although I don’t think it can happen again this year, Nike designers were able to improve the performance for the 8’s and it shouldn’t be overlooked. The lockdown is amazing mainly because the zipped collar is more restrictive but still offers a full range of motion and allows for an ease of entrance. It seemed like a gimmick at first, but it really works. If you didn’t find a version you like among the signature styles, and the simplicity of colors is your virtue, consider getting one of the Team Banks. Check out the Gorge Green / Electric Green version in full detail below.

King James’ presence is already being felt in Cleveland. A downtown parking garage recently became home to a four-story Beats Electronics banner showing off James’ Akron tattoo. The King has returned home in the RE-ESTABLISHED 2014 ad. A new commercial for the $200 Powerbeats2 Wireless headphones from Beats by Dre features LeBron James back in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, training at the LeBron James Arena at Akron’s St. Vincent-St. Mary High School. Additionally, the 10-story, 200-foot wide Nike banner depicting LeBron James returning to Cleveland will be unveiled on Ontario Street on Oct. 30 ahead of the Cavaliers’ 2014-15 home opener. I know Powerbeats are pretty easy to get, but Nike LeBron shoes are still M.I.A.Read the rest of this entry »
The Air Max LeBron VII Low was the precursor of the 360 Air Max based LeBron James’ signature low-tops, which still go strong today. However, the first version of the LeBron 7 Low, the budget one, didn’t come with the 360 degree cushioning and seems like it was just a trial project with only 2 Air Max colorways released to public. It didn’t stop Nike designers from creating a couple of special ones including the presented “Miami Dolphins” and “Summit Lake Hornets” styles. The real story behind them is a way of telling a story of LeBron James moving to Miami back in 2010 through this “Where You Came From… and Where You’re Going To” pack. I guess the pack has a different meaning today and it’s more like “Where You Go To College… and Come Back Home”. After all LeBron James graduated and now it’s time for a new chapter… shoes-wise, too.

Last season Amare Stoudemire showcased a very impressive collection of Nike Soldier 7 PEs. He must be close to Nike’s “Team LeBron” because he got 4 different New York Knicks colorways and he’s probably the only player with his own logo on someone else’s signature shoes. This pre-season he already wore two Soldier 8 also in Knicks colors, but this time no STAT logo or maybe it’s concealed. Check out both Home and Away colorways after the jump. Remember, this year you can design your own Soldier 8’s using Nike iD platform.Read the rest of this entry »
In a possible Eastern Conference Finals preview, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers hosted the Chicago Bulls at Columbus’ Schottenstein Center Monday night. James debuted a new “Home” PE colorway of the Nike LeBron 12. The white-based shoe features red branding and an icy translucent outsole. Though it hasn’t been confirmed by Nike, we probably won’t see this colorway hit retail. Check out a few game shots below and let us know what you think of this rare white based colorway.Read the rest of this entry »
While we’re still waiting for the launch of LeBron James’ twelfth signature shoe, enjoying the eight installment of the Soldier series, we now present you what appears to be the seventh iteration of the Asia-oriented Nike Ambassador series. Like most of the previous models, the possible Ambassador VII features Air Max cushioning in the heel and other Nike goodies like Dynamic Flywire and fused upper. Stay tuned for more updates on all LBJ signature shoes.Read the rest of this entry »
This summer, Nike released the third iteration of the Nike Air LeBron Slide. Actually, only the Elite version has been released, but 8 different styles hit the stores. This is quite a lot considering the LeBron Slide 3 Elite costs $75. That’s an awful lot if you ask me for a pair of flip flops. Fortunately, most of them end up at outlets and you can buy them at roughly $40. Here’s a detailed look at 3 colorways… Sprite, Peach and Hyper Punch. Do you find LeBron James’ signature slides comfortable or do you prefer a less bulky construction on your feet during leisure time?Read the rest of this entry »
The first release of the LeBron 12 NSW Lifestyle will take place today with the drop of the Black/Black-Challenge Red colorway – the same that was worn by LeBron James during the unveiling of the basketball version last month. The newest edition to the LeBron NSW Lifestyle line is, perhaps, the boldest yet. A leather upper is decorated with pyramid-like studs along the outer and inner side panels while the toe is smooth leather. Challenge red accents take care of the lace loops, tongue branding, and heel tag, as well as the outsole. Initally, the shoes were supposed to be released on October 16th, then on October 18th, but in the end they drop today on October 17th. Check out the new detailed photos below or head over to the gallery for a more detailed look.
