Sneak Peek at the Nike Air Phantom – LeBron’s 7th Sig Shoe »

Apr 15, 2009 at 2:59 am | lebron-viishoes

We have already mentioned the Air Phantom… which is supposed to be LeBron James’ seventh signature sneaker. Earlier this month we published a rendered image presenting the so called Nike Air Phantom. Let’s hope this is like last year’s Zoom Power and there will be an actual ZL7. Anyway this new image is somewhat coherent with the previous picture. All components, for example giant swoosh, ankle collar and Zoom-Power-esque midsole, are there too. Do you like the direction Nike is heading with this new L23 design? Courtesy of HoopChina.

Sneak Peek at the Nike Air Phantom 8211 LeBron8217s 7th Sig Shoe
  • LE23RON

    Man I like these a lot,I’m a sucker for a Big swoosh,always like itm
    These shoes are fire,and first pics in my fave CW,can’t get better than
    that!

  • SwaggaBoii

    idk what you’re looking at but i feel like ive seen this before from a much cheaper line of nike shoes. hell put zoom power as the 7th shoe. damn this is fugly.

  • PostmanPat

    Ewwwwwwwwwww Change Them Pleaseee!!! If they look like this then I think the Soldier 3s are better than them personally! :mad: :sad: :!: x

  • flight95

    i fink its way to plain to be a lb shoe it lacks flare if its number 7 ill be dissapointed :sad:

  • Wiktor

    omg NIKE NO! do go so simple! put some craziness on Lebrons!
    leave that kind of average designs for centers to weak!
    God damn!

  • ironbron23

    they should make the lb23 more prominent than the swoosh-it’s king lebron’s shoe anyway and not some generic nike athlete.they should come up with more crazy designs and colorways as it is the last from lebron’s original contract.if ever he signs with nike again,it will be like “book 2” already.

  • 4DRUMZ

    p p p p p p p p Pass on this design! We’ve seen the Durant already!

  • 4DRUMZ

    p p p p p p p p p p Pass. We’ve seen the Zomm BB before as well! :roll:

    I can see that there is some new tech in it but the design is ABC gum if you ask me!

  • I agree with most comments above. It seems like the main focus is on basketball performance, but I would like to see something crazy with LeBron’s logo on it.
    They are clean, but we’ve had lots of that in the past few years from Nike Basketball.

    Come on just call it the lebron vii. These are nice tech wise I heard but get rid of the ankle collar and just make them look cooler. You know like the vi’s. Cool on the court and off of it. If you’re going to put a bunch of cool technology into it make it look cool too. Bland. Don’t like the design.

  • mOe23

    O come on! This is f*#$&@^! disgusting! Well if that’s gonna be the ZL7, well Lebron might probably end his contract to nike haha. I portray it as if was the shoe the Nike Blue chip and looks like its KD’s first and 2nd sigs shoes mixed, with those long swoosh and those wavy lines like in ZL4?! oh nike can’t think more of designs? Too plain, too simple and for me looks generic. . .

  • 3087

    These look more like a Hyperdunk 2 than a ZL7. I’m not a big fan of the Hyperdunks and I hope that LBJ doesn’t go in that direction!

  • akoo

    OK SO I THINK THEY DITCHED THE IDEA OF KEEPIN IT FRESH FOR CASUAL. THEY COMPLETELY WENT FOR BALLIN ONLY ON THIS ONE. IT LOOKS LIKE ONE OF THE CHEAP TEAM SHOES YOU CAN PICK UP ON EASTBAY.

  • tomas

    Drumz took the wordz out of my mouth KD1+Zoom BB = this terrible unholy creation…PAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSS

  • Curtis J

    Wow if nike is looking for some better designs hit me up because this is real disappointing through my eyes but I know these won’t be the VII’s (I hope)

  • cmb0912

    Here are some other renderings of the ZLVII…they dont look too bad on here…

  • TRUTH 4 U HATERZ!!!

    I don’t like this at all! It looks way cheap! It doesn’t even look like it could handle Lebron or his style of play! I bet if they release these he blows the whole shoe out after 1 game. I pray to god he doesn’t hurt himself if this happens!!!!!!! Seriously these are JUNK!!!

  • TRUTH 4 U HATERZ!!!

    Yeah i’m sure the technology is superb but the looks need to match. Please redesign these. And if the 360 Max air thin (new technology) isn’t as responsive and as cushy as the double stack zoom air, DON’T USE IT! Even the jordans are top of the line technology and they use the double stack zoom air!!!!!!

  • L23 With Big Z

    I 100000000% agree with you! This could sell for like $90 if it were just a nike shoe without the L23 logo and they said its going to retail for $160?! I will need to see more pictures before I decide if its ugly or not. Besides that GO CAVS!! (Playoffs start in 3 days!!)

  • Nike what are you thinking?!?! These look like a total piece of S**T!! Like what the hell!!Your designing a shoe for the planets greatest athlete/ballplayer and you make this?!!I’ve never been so disgusted with a LeBron signature line concept pic before.I own every pair of LBJ kick and this F*****N Blows!!! I wanna c somethin crazy no more casual stuff.The ZLVI was great but not again.I wana a space aged crazy lookin Lebron that is stylish and built for a true warrior.King James is a Soldier make him something he deserves.You gotta blow the shoe game outta the water.NIKE WAKE THE F**K UP!!! ALL HAIL THE KING……..23

  • Brett

    The sixes rape these things bad

  • Aaron

    Honestly, they look like a mix between the Zoom Powers and the VI’s….decent but definitely exected a lot more.

  • ENDs

    to start off its ok, but it will def need changes and need to look and stand out in a GOOD way the KING needs some fresh stuff 2 put on his feet!! mine 2!

  • Lebron MVP

    these suck they look exactly like the kobe iv :sad:

  • Wiktor

    BTW
    NIKE! MAIL ME FOR SOME DESIGNS I GOT FEW!

  • martel

    these r coo but i dont like them being called the phantom. they should stay wit the “Zoom LeBron” because its his shoe and the could make em better. i hope these r not the nex LeBron’s
