Following a couple of teaser looks at the Nike Soldier 8 we finally have a much needed closer look at the upcoming installment. The Soldier series started as LeBron’s playoffs shoes… then turned into a team shoe… but now it’s become the No. 1 selection for King James for this season. Design-wise, the new version still shares the aggressive look and feel of the previous models – Soldier 6 and 7 – and once again features its trademark midfoot strap. This time it’s a brand new construction with an unique zip-collar. Continue reading for more pics.

Nike is ready to launch the all new Max LeBron XI Low this weekend with the premiere of the Easter colorway. Here’s one of the other styles that’s already available in the Asia / Pacific region. It consists of Turbo Green, Nightshade, Glacier Ice and Laser Crimson. There’s no word on when they hit U.S., there’s no official word from Nike, but my guess is that it will be very soon. Let us know what’s your favorite version of the LeBron 11 Low and if you plan to pick up a pair.

LeBron James’ signature Dunkman pose makes a comeback with the Nike LeBron XI Low next month. The Men’s version of the LeBron 11 Low uses the LeBron 9 outsole, but the Kids’ version still uses the LeBron 8 V/2 outsole. Other than that the Grade School edition is pretty much the same as adult’s… even in the presented Dunkman colorway.

When Nike announced the Gumbo NIKEiD option for the LeBron 11 they said it will be available for a limited time and they kept their word. It wasn’t just for hype. The regular LeBron 11 iD has many color options, compared to the last year’s model, but the Gumbo version allowed for a nearly endless array of combinations. Mixing different patterns on the upper and choosing different colors for front and back outsole was a lot of fun. Here’s one of the creations sent by our reader Angel. It channels the South Beach theme, sort of, but in a whole new way. Let us know about your own Gumbo iD creations. In order to get your pics up use the contact form, or Twitter, or Facebook.

Last night LeBron James broke out a new version of the Nike Zoom Soldier VII. It’s already his 21st colorway of the Soldier 7 compared to 14 colorways of the LeBron 11. With three Regular Season games left LeBron may become the first player to reach 50 different shoes in one season and I’m pretty sure this record will never be broken anyway. Right now he’s at 48, but in the past seven days, which include 4 games played by the Miami Heat, James debuted six different pairs! Over his first nine season King James used an average of 17 distinct kicks… the average for the last two years is over forty! Do you think LeBron James is the biggest sneakerhead in the NBA?

With the LeBron 11 Elite Nike wanted to go with more protection and more containment rather than just making the shoes slightly lighter like with the previous iterations. Apparently instead of going with carbon fiber like usual, they used a metalized TPU plate, which is still strong enough but is much more flexible. This is crucial for LeBron doing his cuts and when he’s moving laterally. The big difference in terms of the Hyperposite from the original LeBron 11 is the removal of some elements in the forefoot in order to minimize the weight but also keep that level of protection. The initial Wolf Grey, Laser Crimson, Cool Grey and Black colorway of the LeBron XI drops in just a couple of hours at nikestore.com and other Nike Basketball retailers. Fans in Europe got them yesterday and they’re still available for purchase. Take a closer look below or browse the gallery for more pics.

Nike Basketball has divided the Elite 3.0 collection intro three groups. Mark your calendars for April 12th, May 9th, and June 6th as the “Team”, “Hero”, and “Gold” collections will be up for grabs, respectively. Folks at sneakernews.com had a chance to sit down with Charles Williams – Nike Basketball Product Director – and discuss the inspiration behind this year’s Elites. This gives us a chance to take a closer look at a couple of early stage samples. By the way, turns out the LeBron 11 Elite was inspired by Lamborghini Egoista. They’re both pricey and pretty cool too.

If you like LeBron’s kicks from last night… the Soldier 7 pair… there’s a chance we will be able to get a pair too. The Crimson, Black, and Grey colorway is one of two upcoming styles that are likely to be released to public in the upcoming months. The last GR version of the Nike Zoom Soldier VII was released way back in November of last year. Since then LeBron James has made these his primary game shoes, but Nike Basketball has yet to issue any new colorways. It’s possible that both of the presented colorways will end up at retail sooner rather than later. Which one do you find more interesting? Crimson and Black or White and Volt?
