In the past year LeBron James wasn’t so much into PEs. That’s probably because he wanted to promote the GRs and boost up their sales, however, it’s unsual to see him wear a Player Exclusive version of his main shoe for the season – Nike Zoom LeBron V – only 4 times in 75 NBA games he played in. In these four cases he wore the Hardwood Classic on the opening night, the New York Yankees during his visit at Madison Square Garden, and the last two involved a special Cleveland colored White, Crimson and Gold Nike Zoom LeBron V. The Yankees, after hitting the outlets, are not that unique so it leaves us with TWO TRUE PEs sported by King James in the 2007-08 NBA Season. Also, in the 2008 Playoffs when we wore the Zoom Soldier II, it seemed he’s gonna bring out some heavier sneaker arsenal, but then the best out of 4 ZSIIs he did wear – the Remix Zoom Soldier II – ended up as a Finishline Exclusive. Anyway, since the Hardwood Classic Nike LeBron V has been showcased already with some good photos several times here on NLB.net, today we want to show you the other of those two special “True PE” V’s worn by the King. It’s a White/Varsity Crimson/Metallic Gold colorway. Apart from White buttery leather across the body, Crimson half-toe-box, strap, laces and Gold buckle, eyelets and stitching, it features Crimson Suede, Velvet-like Phyposite elements. Most importantly it has the LRJ logo stitched on the back – True PE symbol. After the jump you’ll see a massive number of pics… and that’s just part number one. Check back tomorrow for some more detailed shots.
