LeBron James said the outsole of the LeBron 12 is his favorite part of the shoe… especially the colorful pods. So far most of the colorways come with a similar pattern on the outsole plus there are a couple of different shade of translucent blue that has dominated the 12’s so far. Now with the arrival of energy styles like the upcoming Black History Month edition we finally get the much needed breath of fresh air. The BHM’s come with a smoked outsole and white pods. Check out the new detailed photos showing the “BHM” Nike LeBron XII that is scheduled to be released next Saturday and let us know how they rank against previous BHM Nike LeBron designs.Read the rest of this entry »

The Black History Month edition of the Nike Zoom Soldier VII is one of ten different versions used by LeBron James this season. James was supposed to wear the BHM LeBron 11 on January 20th, but he switched out so fast that all we have is this one blurry photo in the timeline. I’m pretty sure it’s the only photo of LBJ wearing the BHM Nike LeBron XI. Just like many other times this season, LeBron opted for the Soldier 7, but in this case he was very well prepared. He ended up wearing the Black History Month PE so everything seemed OK. Today we finally get a closer look at LeBron’s PE.

It’s very difficult to keep track of LeBron James’ current sneaker rotation. Just ask sneakernews.com… they tried. It’s a hard treacherous work. It’s very easy to make mistakes, too. Yesterday I posted pics of LBJ wearing the BHM Soldier 7’s on Monday night in Atlanta. Turns out he did start the game in the BHM LeBron 11’s, but it was so brief that even Getty Images photographers could not catch that moment. Jokes aside… he did switch into the Soldiers after the first timeout. It was not easy to find a photo evidence of him wearing the 11’s, but here it is… one blurry look. At least the 2013-14 Timeline has been updated accordingly and it’s still the ultimate guide to all sneaker wears of King James! Shout out to our faithful readers who pointed out the missing piece.
Last night, King James scored a game-high 30 to lead the Miami Heat in a loosing effort against the Atlanta Hawks. LeBron James did what LeBron James does with the game on the line in the fourth quarter. He nailed back-to-back 3-pointers to turn a 104-101 deficit into a 107-104 lead. But with the large Miami contingent in Philips roaring, in celebration of the Heat’s largest lead of the game, the Hawks went on a 10-1 run over the next 3:25 to take a 114-108 lead. James sported a new look with the Black History Month version of the Nike Soldier VII. He wore the “BHM” LeBron 11 during the pre-game practice, but opted for the Soldiers in the actual game. It’s been a while since he saw LBJ in the 11’s…
