Last year a new LeBron theme emerged – Summit Lake Hornets. It’s a homage to James’ middle school days, a celebration to his first experiences with this sport. The Summit Lake Hornets was his basketball team included in children’s recreational league where King James first played. That’s right… back in 1992… before his glory days at SVSM, LBJ had been dropping buckets left and right sporting Purple and Aqua team jerseys, which were inspired by the Charlotte Hornets uniforms at the time being. SLH’s core group – who remain friends till this day – would later go on to attend St. Vincent – St. Mary High School.
The first sneaker to feature the Hornets theme was the Nike Zoom Soldier II. It was a GS Quickstike last summer and it was also released in Mens’ sizes later that year exclusively at NDC. The second SLH shoe was the Ambassador, but it was limited to Asia. Of course, the Nike Zoom LeBron VI also dropped in this special colorway. It was a limited General Release. We’ve been writing about the SLHs for a while now and today we would like to show you where it is all coming from. There are tons of LeBron’s NBA pics, we even have a separate album with his SVSM pics, but I’m sure everybody here would like to see little LeBron in his Hornets uniform. Thanks to Weplay we are able to share these exclusive photos as well as some fresh pics featuring the latest SLH Nike LeBron – ZLVI.
