LeBron James has been rocking the LeBron 11 Elite and the Soldier 7 interchangeability in this year’s Playoffs. The “sneakergate” continues. As of today he wore three of each, although he uses the Elites more often. Kevin Durant has also rolled back towards the standard edition of his shoes, which means that both stars are not using their fancy $275, $200 Elite shoes. Last night, James introduced a brand new Player Exclusive version of the Zoom Soldier VII in Red and Black. The Heat defeated the Brooklyn Nets 96-94 and advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals. King James led the way for the Heat with 29 points, nine rebounds and five assists. What do you think of Nike Basketball’s Elite series after their marquee stars are reluctant to wear them in games? Does it change the appeal to buy them? Let us know in the comments below.

LeBron James had done his part to put the Miami Heat in control of the Eastern Conference semifinals, and one last free throw was meaningless except to him. He missed, leaving him one shy of his first 50-point playoff game, muttering to himself after. “That’s the first time I’ve been disappointed in myself in a win,” James said. He tied his playoff career high of 49 points and broke Dwyane Wade’s franchise record for points in a playoff game in Miami’s win. Despite LeBron’s heroics the game was very close all the way to the end. It was Chris Bosh who made the tiebreaking 3-pointer with 57 seconds left, and the Heat beat the Brooklyn Nets 102-96 for a 3-1 series lead. If you want to commemorate LeBron’s amazing performance get a pair of the Nike Soldier 7. It was the Soldiers, not the LeBron 11 Elite, playing the leading role last night. Photos via @geminikeez.

Among all LeBron 11 College / High School Player Exclusive colorways this is the one people ask around the most. The Florida Gators Away PE features an unique zig-zag pattern that’s located between Hyperposite and Hyperfuse that separates these from all other school PEs. The color combination is very appealing whether you’re a Gators’ fan, or see these more as Cavaliers’ Hardwood Classic theme, which is natural for a LeBron fan, or even as a possible match for the New York Knicks. Unfortunately these PEs are not meant to be seen on the streets and it does seem like the way people obtain Nike PEs is about to change for good anyway.

Despite playing one at home and the other one on the road, LeBron James used the same colorway of the Nike LeBron 11 Elite in two straight games. It was the Grey, Black and Red version of his new Post Season kicks. Last night, LeBron continued his stellar play with his second straight game with at least 30 points. LeBron came to Charlotte in no-mercy, attack mode and kick-started the annihilation of the Bobcats to lead the Heat to a 3-0 series lead. He even tried to send a message to Michael Jordan himself.

The Miami Heat defeated the Charlotte Bobcats 101-97 Wednesday night. LeBron James led the way for the Heat with 32 points, eight assists, six rebounds and four steals. Miami now leads the series 2-0. James debuted a new version of the Nike LeBron XI Elite in a Black, Grey and Red colorway pictured below… a great look for the Heat uniforms. It’s one of those dark themed styles that we never get to enjoy at retail. It’s already his fifth version of the LeBron 11 Elite, all of which are PEs, including the ones he used during the regular season.

LeBron James seems to be having so much fun with his shoes right now. Lacing up a new pair every game is not enough so he does two new pairs per game now. On Monday he introduced two new Nike Soldier 7 PEs, which can be customized on Nike iD, and last night he went with yet another new version of the Soldier 7 and a new Player Exclusive colorway of the Nike LeBron 11 Elite in Black and Red. Both of these shoes are a pretty sick match with Miami’s throwback uniforms. Check out the pics below and stay tuned for new episodes of our LeBron James sole watch for the upcoming games.

It seems like LeBron James wears a new pair of Nike Soldier 7 in every single game. Last night, he debuted not one, but two different colorways. Just yesterday we profiled Home and Away PEs of the Soldier VII, however, LeBron debuted a different set last night. His latest Miami Heat PEs feature more colors… the Away pair offers a truly Miami Heat look with additional Yellow details. Expect more updates in the timeline section very soon. It seems like other sites have lost interest in LeBron’s recent wears. It has become a real challenge to keep up with his sneaker rotation. Check out new Soldier 7’s #17 and #18 below.

LeBron James has already made the Soldier 7’s more than special. To this day he’s worn 17 different colorways and over the past 2 months he went with the LeBron 11 only a couple of times. This makes the Nike Zoom Soldier VII more significant for a regular fan than his primary signature shoe. If Nike were to design the MVP version once again… I think it should be the Soldiers. Anyway… despite the ongoing onslaught of different Soldier 7 PEs there are still some colorways that remain to be seen. Below there are two different Miami Heat PEs… the Away edition was used by LeBron James last month, but the Home version has yet to see some action. By our count there are nearly 60 different Nike Zoom Soldier 7 styles. Which one is your favorite?
