Throwback Thursday: The G.O.A.T. – Zoom LeBron II Neon Dunkman »

Sep 3, 2009 at 3:53 pm | lebron-iishoes

As we are witnessing the seventh shoe in the LeBron James signature line, the throwback part of his collection is getting bigger and bigger. Some of the fans, who lost their interest after the V and the VI seem to think the LeBrons are back on track with the VII (see the poll on the left). The way I see it… it’s all about variety. Personally, I loved The Six and The Five. They were awesome basketball shoes, but I also understand those hardcore collectors, who weren’t so thrilled. The ZLV is still, in my humble opinion, one of the best all-around shoes of the 21st century. The Six performs well, but the most interesting thing is its casual appeal and plenty of nice colorways released (The LeBrons, Big Apple, Taxi, etc.). The VII is a whole different story introducing the new 360 Max Air unit and Flywire. Of course the most ground breaking LBJ kicks were the IV’s… there’s no doubt about that. Re-introducing the Foamposite in the way they did is something nobody can ignore. Going further back we get to the III and the II. The Zoom LeBron II is believed to be the GOAT in the LeBron James collection. The only bad thing about it is the number of colorways released to public. Even if you include the limited Birthday exclusive the total number is four. Imagine what it would be like to have the II’s treated like the VI’s. Imagine what it would be like if Nike released the shoe you see below to public. It would cause a riot.

    TRUTH!

    I would have to agree, the II is the GOAT.

    For me out of all of the Lebron’s I own even the rare stuff, Black/Gum II’s are my favorite.

    I don’t know, well yes I do the II is the greatest. I love the allstar grey and blue colorway and the black/red personally. The VI is in a class of it’s own in my opinion just because of it’s off court appeal.Has any top notch performance basketball shoe ever looked so good with jeans as the VI did. And the VII is groundbreaking shoe with the new 360 air and the flywire. It doesn’t look as good with jeans but it is super.

    I dunno bout you guys but the LeBron II’s are defs the best LeBron’s. They had a nice shape, straps and they all had the siick laser pattern, I like the White,Navy GR and the LeBron II Triple Double PE.
