We’ve been wishing for a predominantly black colorway of the Nike LeBron XI for a really long time. It seems like our prayers have been answered as we take a closer look a this new Triple Black version with Camo details on the outsole, inner lining and the Swoosh. It’s definitely the Men’s edition, but there’s no word on whether they’re coming out or not. Is it something you would like to buy?

The Nike LeBron 9 Low has offered us many thrills, mainly due to a couple of interesting designs like Floridians, LeBronold Palmer, or the War Vet. LeBron James already wore the LBJ 9 Low “War Vet” back in January, however, he was spotted rocking them again this week on Memorial Day during the Miami Heat practice. The LeBron 9 Low PE in the presented Camouflage colorway was designed by DJ Clark Kent as a salute to James’ soldier-like ethos.

Recently, LeBron James joined Miami Heat teammate Shane Battier for his 2nd Annual “South Beach Battioke” in Miami. The team karaoke event benefits the Battier Take Charge Foundation, dedicated to providing resources for the development and education of underserved youth and teens. LeBron performed a rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Rock With You” before teaming up with Dwyane Wade to serenade a guest with Shai’s “If I Ever Fall In Love.” For Battier’s event, LeBron laced up the unreleased “War Vet” colorway of the Nike LeBron 9 Low. Designed by DJ Clark Kent, the shoes feature a camouflage upper, contrasting orange details and a gum rubber outsole. Before that LBJ was spotted at the 43rd Annual Three Kings Day Parade in Miami over the weekend wearing the University of Oregon version of the Zoom Jet Turf.

When I saw the latest release of the Soldier 6 in Orange and Hasta being available at NDC I was pretty excited. I was on the fence with the Ohio State digi camouflage edition, but these seemed even better. Unfortunately, the catalog image posted on Nike Store presented the sample version and the actual shoe looks different. It’s still Orange and Hasta. There’s still the camo digi inprint present, but it’s not what I had expected. The Orange upper is brighter… similar to the All-Star 9′s, the camo pattern is darker and sports a new design. The outsole is translucent instead of a 50/50 split solid white & camo. The shoes are still nice and I’m going to keep them. The inspiration behind the OSU edition was obvious when the team was scheduled to play an exhibition game on board of the USS Yorktown in Charleston Harbor. However, these are more mysterious with a different logo placed on the top of the tongue. Continue reading for a detailed look.Read the rest of this entry »
Last month Nike released a special colorway of the Nike Zoom Soldier VI for the Ohio State University basketball team featuring a digitized camouflage theme. Nike Basketball continues a truly military inspiration for the new Soldiers with a new predominantly Orange colorway, which also sports the digi camo inprint. Additionally, the shoes feature a Dark Green (I think it’s Hasta) midsole and the Swoosh. You can get these now at Nikestore Europe for 130 Euros which is much more than the U.S. MSRP of $120. It really sucks to be an European and buy / collect Nike shoes. Check out the updated release dates page for more information on the new Soldiers. Merry Christmas!Read the rest of this entry »
There were quite a few Nike LeBron 9 Low colorways released to the public, but these did not make the cut. Unfortunately for us all. Here’s the first detailed look at the Camouflage colorway of the LeBron 9 low-top designed by DJ Clark Kent. It’s not the first Camo shoe from the LeBron James collection, but it’s definitely a nice one. The shoe features a dark camo upper sitting on top a 360 Air Max unit and a whole gum outsole. They also come with customized lace locks, which are mentioned in the video below. Shout out to Stickie213 for sharing!

Last week we posted a detailed look at a very rare colorway of the Nike Zoom Soldier in a Wheat Camo colorway aka “Desert Storm.” There’s an equally unique pair that would have also made a great combat shoe, but features a predominantly black upper with camo inprint. It’s the first time we’re seeing them up close and similar to the previous militarized version of the Soldiers… it never came out. That’s really too bad, cause both of them are pretty nice.

The first installement of the Soldier series has been “militarized” in many ways. It all started with the release of the “Sole-dier” edition, a collab shoe between the Swoosh and Sole Collector. Nike didn’t stop there, though. They made many more shoes, which would have been suitable for army men. The best case and point example is the presented below “Desert Storm” sample colorway of the Nike Zoom Soldier. The first Soldier will be always remembered for accompanying LeBron James during his first ever trip to the NBA Finals. I really regret Nike didn’t pull the trigger with these back in 2007, especially with the House of Hoops emerging as a new outlet for limited kicks. The Wheat Camo make up of the ZS1 was seen for the first and only time on wallpaper shots, but they have been recently unveiled thanks to one of ultimate Nike LeBron collectors – gettinit247. Ejony the pics.
