The Dunkman theme has become a part of the publicly available part of the LeBron James’ signature line. Last season, Nike released a couple of different Dunkman inspired Nike LeBron products including the Mids, which were faintly labeled as Mica Green, the Lows and even the Slides. All of them featured different Dunkman logos (different poses) in different places. Back in the day the Dunkman was all about Mean Green and Gun Metal Grey, however, Nike shifted into other direction once it had become widely available. In my opinion, other experiments have failed apart from the Black and Volt LeBron 7’s. The LeBron 9 Elite Dunkman is also noteworthy, but that was a PE. Check out an alternate version of the Dunkman LeBron 11 below, which proudly sports the Dunkman logo on the tongue and on the back of the shoe. It was never released to public and maybe that’s why it’s better than the GR. It’s still not OG-Dunkman good, though. We definitely need better pics too.

There are more than enough of Soldier 8 colorways to choose from. Nike released a couple of interesting styles… especially the ones themed in dark colors paired with vibrant hues like Bright Mango, Dusty Cactus and the presented Dunkman-esque colorway. The “Volt” Zoom Soldier VIII features a Magnet Grey upper, which based on these pics looks a lot like the original Gun Metal Grey that many LeBron fans wish to return someday. I don’t expect anybody to loose it over a Soldier, however, I really like what Nike is doing with the secondary, and at times primary, LeBron James’ signature series. Check out the detailed photos below.

From Day 1, LeBron James announced his presence in the league with a thunderous cupped dunk that had people in awe, and thus the legend of the Dunkman was born. This weekend, Nike Basketball brings the popular Dunkman series to the LeBron 11 Low silhouette. Low cut and sleek, the LeBron 11 Low represents an evolution of King James’ signature shoe, with a full-length Max Air bag for optimum cushioning and flexibility. Volt accents on the upper, including laces, Max Air unit, outsole and splatter graphic add pop to the Medium Khaki/Medium Olive palette. You can pick up a pair starting this Friday, May 30th at Foot Locker and other Nike Basketball retailers for $170.

LeBron James’ signature Dunkman pose makes a comeback with the Nike LeBron XI Low next month. The Men’s version of the LeBron 11 Low uses the LeBron 9 outsole, but the Kids’ version still uses the LeBron 8 V/2 outsole. Other than that the Grade School edition is pretty much the same as adult’s… even in the presented Dunkman colorway.

I’m not a huge fan of LeBron James’ low-tops mainly because they’re pretty much the same every year. I miss the good old days when the Zoom LeBron II Low was just as good as the Mid. Same rule applies to the LeBron 8 V/2 Low… in both cases we got a truly low-top edition in the classic meaning of this term, which is to “cut-off” the ankle area and leave the rest as it was. Nowadays it’s just a new upper, which kind of looks like it was inspired by the Mids, and the same old 360 Air Max tooling below. The Dunkman theme hasn’t had much luck either as of late. Instead of using the classic “Mean Green” they’ve been using what I call a “weird green” instead. Despite all that the presented Dunkman LeBron XI Low might be a winner. It’s not your instant classic, it won’t sell out either, but it’s a solid B+ for effort. Check out this Promo Sample pair, which recently popped up on eBay. The General Release pair, which drops in two months, is nearly identical.

The Dunkman theme has become mediocre based on the past releases. It used to be the most amazing thing as far as LeBron James’ signature collection goes. Now it’s just blah. The last decent version worthy of the Dunkman legacy was the LeBron VII. However, if we expand from General Release to Player Exclusive styles… things are slightly for the better. The presented Dunkman LeBron 9 Elite was never released to public, but it sports a very interesting look. It’s very bright, but the Black Carbon Fiber panels add more balance to the shoe… something that was missing from the Volt Dunkman LeBron X. It helps that the Dunkman logos are in the right place too. Not hidden inside like in the LeBron 11 Dunkman, but sitting atop the throne. It’s never easy to find decent pics of rare PEs, but here’s nice set of pics. Check out the complete Dunkman collection and its next member that’s about to release this summer.

Last year, LeBron James did the semi-official unveiling of the low-top 10’s during the NBA All-Star Weekend… long before the shoes were available for purchase. It may be a new tradition because yesterday he broke out the Nike LeBron XI Low for the very first time. James was spotted wearing the Dunkman LeBron 11 Low in practice and later during a visit at a local House of Hoops store in New Orleans. This exact version has been already leaked back in December and it is one of the upcoming styles. I hate Nike for using the same Air Max tooling, once again, but that was still the most interesting thing I saw last night anyway.
