With this set of pics presenting the “Christ the King” LeBron 12 Away PE we have now completed the Nike LeBron High School roundtrip. Nowadays, there are a number of different schools supported by Nike Basketball and LeBron James with personalized kicks, but back in the day there were only three: Saint Vincent Saint Mary “Irish”, Christ the King “Royals” and Fairfax “Lions”. Nike has used different shoes throughout the years… sometimes it was the numbered line, but there were times when the Soldier line dominated the High School PE game. This season the task has been given to the main shoe for the year… the Nike LeBron 12. None of the 2014-15 High School LeBron 12 PEs has any school logos or any back heel tab markings, but the execution is impeccable. Check out the new CTK 12’s below and the rest of the High School PEs.Read the rest of this entry »
Recently, we got a chance to get a closer look at the “Fairfax” LeBron 12 PE in the Home colorway. As usual… there are at least two different version and now we have the Away edition available for preview. I know I’ve said this before, but I haven’t seen a poorly executed Fairfax Lions coloway within the LeBron James signature collection. It certainly helps that both the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Miami Heat are a great match with the Fairfax theme and The King has often opted to use the Fairfax PEs in a game. Take a closer look at the Fairfax LeBron XII Away PE below.Read the rest of this entry »
Last season, Nike Basketball and LeBron James added the Florida Gators to the long, but still exclusive list of schools fortunate to land own colors for the Nike LeBron line. That’s when the popular zig-zagged colorways of the LeBron 11 were revealed. This season, the Gators received new personalized styles of the Nike LeBron XII… again in two different versions to match their Home and Away uniforms. The “Gators Home” LeBron 12 features a clean white base with red branding and hits of blue and the mandatory translucent blue outsole. The “Gators Away” LeBron 12 consists of a two-colored upper – red fuse and blue posite – white swoosh and again the translucent blue outsole.Read the rest of this entry »
We already got a glimpse of this year’s school Nike Soldier 8’s with the “Christ the King” edition last month. Today we get a detailed look at the Saint Vincent Saint Mary’s both colorways courtesy of kenny23forever, who has one of the sickest SVSM Nike LeBron collections around. Additionally, we get to see the whole Zoom Soldier series… 1 to 8 and all of the SVSM Player Exclusive styles. The SVSM Soldier 8’s feature the native Green and Gold make up and the Fighting Irish logos on the heel and on the inside of the tongue. Only the Soldier 1 and 3 (one colorway each) were made available to public… the rest is usually reserved to the players only… which makes completing the whole set a lot more special.

Back in November we got a pretty good look at the Home version of the “University of Kentucky” LeBron 12 PE. Last night, LeBron James himself did the unveiling of the “Kentucky Wildcats” Away edition. His buddy Kyrie Irving, who’s just getting started on his first signature shoe from Nike, posted a new look of the Kyrie 1. There’s not much to tell here based on the overhead view, but seems like the LeBron 12 Kentucky Away may have broken the translucent outsole trend that’s been around for most of the 12’s thus far.
Last week a couple of interesting School LeBron 12 PEs surfaced the Internet. Today, we take a closer look at one of the most interesting from last season offerings… the “Florida Gators” LeBron 11 PEs. This was the very first time that Gators got personalized kicks from the LeBron James brand and it was indeed special. The popular color blocking was probably enough to create just enough hype, but the custom zig-zag graphics really set these off. Detailed photos have eluded us for a while, but they recently popped up on eBay giving us a much needed closer look at both Home and Away styles.Read the rest of this entry »
The Arizona Wildcats are the latest school to receive personalized kicks from LeBron James and Nike Basketball. It’s not their first time, though. Last year, they received Home and Away versions of the Nike Zoom Soldier VII. This time it’s the main shoe – the Nike LeBron XII – consisting of a navy upper, metallic red Hyperposite panels, white Swoosh branding and an icy translucent sole below. Compared to previous years no school logos are visible but it’s possible Nike opted for the the pull-tab markings like with the Duke PE. Check out both Soldier 7 and LeBron 12 Arizona Wildcats PEs below.Read the rest of this entry »
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.Read the rest of this entry »
