The Black, White and Crimson Nike Zoom LeBron V – the shoes, which many have been waiting for – will hit the stores on February 8th. Usually the Black/White/Red colorway is the first to drop, but this season Nike tried a different approach and released the Navy colorway first just like in the case of LeBron’s summer shoes Zoom Soldier and Zoom Soldier II. Actually this popular style has had many different implementations. The very first version featured Black and White upper with White toebox and Red outsole (1). The second one had a Black outsole (2) and the third one took it further with different upper material and black outsole with some eye-popping glitter (3). The fourth and the final version, which is the actual releasing one, is the same as the third with some additional red stitching on the back and star-shaped holes on the strap instead of the usual square-shaped ones (4). See the (r)evolution below. By the way, although the shoes release in ten days you can preorder them on eastbay.com ($140, shipping on 2/8, don’t mind the wrong catalog pic!) or order on pickyourshoes.com ($130, in stock!).
