Two seasons ago, when the 2014 NBA All-Star Weekend was hosted in New Orleans, Nike Basketball created a special Gumbo League pack that consisted of three signature shoes for Kobe, KD, and LeBron. This included the Gator King edition of the Nike LeBron 11.
What we didn’t know is the existence of yet another shoe styled in the very same way. The Zoom Soldier VII “Gator King” is also channeling the New Orleans culture mirrored in graphic textures throughout the shoe. King James’ problems with the LeBron 11 have been very well documented so it’s not at all surprising to learn about the backup Soldier 7 PEs. What is surprising is how long it took for this pair to surface the Internet. Shout out to @brantrav42 for sharing! Check out the detailed images below.
