Seems like there won’t be any 100% Zoom Air based shoes from the Nike LeBron line anytime soon. After the VII using the 360 Air Max cushioning, and the Soldier IV also accommodating the Air Max in the heel, the 7 P.S. was the only thing keeping hopes of Zoom Air fans alive. Today’s news mentioned about the 8 P.S. going Max Air as well, so the whole line up for the upcoming season will be Zoom-less… even the Ambassador 3.0.
That’s not necessary a bad thing, because, for example, the Zoom Soldier IV, which is a Zoom Air/Max Air combo, handles itself very well on the basketball court. I would even say it still feels like a Zoom Soldier shoe despite the new configuration. Several signature colorways (six to be exact) of the ZSIV have been already released to public. Additionally, various Team Bank styles are available at eastbay.com and nikestore.com. The two presented below are very similar to the “Cool Grey” pack of the Air Max LeBron VII. So far we’re only missing the Orange colorway.
