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 »
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.

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.Read the rest of this entry »
