The Nike LeBron 11 Low arrives today in a sleek new colorway. Unlike the usually loud colorways for the Lows this time Nike Basketball goes with a laid back Black, Hyper Crimson and Hyper Cobalt style, which features a graphic inner lining, textured swoosh and gum outsole. The shoes drop later today at nikestore.com, Eastbay and other Nike Basketball retailers. You’ll be able to pick up a pair for $170 along with matching socks, t-shirt and a hat. Personally, I think it’s one of the best LeBron James’ signature low-tops ever to reach the public. Btw, the “Acid Lion” LeBron 11 Low will also drop in Europe on August 8th. Don’t sleep on this one!Read the rest of this entry »
In anticipation of the launch of the “Neutral” Nike LeBron 11 Low, which is set to debut later this month, let’s take a closer look at the newest member of the LeBron James’ signature collection. Apparently, Nike has prepared a whole outfit to match the all-black pair with the gum sole including a hat, t-shirt and socks. The shoe and the accompanying collection is set to drop on July 31st, which means that both “Multi-Color” and “Neutral” low-top 11’s drop on the same week. Let us know which version do you prefer. Check out the new detailed pics courtesy of @TWNTY8.Read the rest of this entry »
Earlier this month we broke the news on Nike Basketball’s latest LeBron 11 Low “Gum” release scheduled to take place on July 31st. Today we get a second look at the Black, Hyper Crimson and Hyper Cobalt style, which comes with a sneakerhead favorite gum outsole. The Nike LeBron XI Low has already produced plenty of clean colorways, but this one has to be my favorite! I’ve been pushing for some toned back black based styles for LeBron’s signature low-top series but the last two years we didn’t get any. In fact, these are so nice that I would normally claim them as PEs if I didn’t know better. The “Gum” LeBron 11 Lows will be available next Thursday, July 31st for $175.Read the rest of this entry »
LeBron’s Nike relationship was ready to kick into 2nd gear for 2004 with the his second signature shoe, but the first one named for the budding superstar, the Nike Zoom LeBron II. Building off of the comfort requirements of LeBron for his previous signature shoe, Nike noticed that LeBron’s foot lockdown needed some tweaking for the next generation. With the addition of a Xytel midfoot shank for stability and a removable ankle strap for support, the Nike Zoom LeBron II could enable the wearer extreme comfort on the floor through stability. Comfort, explosiveness, and control had now become the standard. Nike prepared a lot of great colorways for the LeBron 2, but most of them were Player Exclusives. Here’s one of the better ones… the popular Gum Sole. However, this Nike Headquarter unreleased promo sample is different from the previous Gum PEs featuring a Suede upper. All in all, there are 4 different versions: leather with brown crown (#1), leather with gum crown (#2), mesh (#3) and this newly discovered suede upper (#4). Continue reading for a better look. Can you spot all the differences?Read the rest of this entry »
Not so long ago we previewed the upcoming Low Top edition of the Nike Air Max LeBron VII, which is set to debut during the Summer 2010. We profiled several catalog pics featuring very interesting colorways and some actual footage of the Wear Test Sample has leaked the Internet as well. Today, we’ve got another dose of LeBron VII Low real photos featuring two styles – regular White/Black/Red and unseen before White/Gum. New pics tell a little bit more about the shoes. There’s no Flywire, there’s no 360 Max Air unit, which was replaced by a Visible Air unit at the heel, but there’s definitely King James style present. With these new photos the LBJ7 Low seems much more appealing. Or is it just me? I hope they are as comfortable as they look.

The shoe you see below is a very special Nike Zoom LeBron sneaker. We posted the very first online photo back in 2007 and I’m sure that was the only angle you’ve seen so far. Today, courtesy of RIF.LA, we get an exclusive look at these unreleased and very rare Zoom 20-5-5 Samples. Featuring a Cream/Wheat upper and a translucent Gum outsole, which looks simply amazing, they join a selected group of GUM LeBrons. It’s really too bad none of them made it into production thus far. If you like Gum 20-5-5’s, be sure to visit RIF.LA as these rumored one-of-one samples are available for purchase (size 9 of course).

You know how there are 4 versions of the Triple Double/Hardwood Classic LeBron II, and 3 different Dunkman implementations, and 2 distinct Chamber Of Fear White/Red PEs? Well, seems like there are more II’s modified in a similar way. The popular Gum colorway has been known for a while, but recently it’s been pointed out that there are at least two editions, which are separated with the slightest of differences. The detail that sets the two apart is the L23 logo on the lateral side of the shoe. One of them features an all dark brown logo, while the other one has a gum-colored crown in it. Props to Zach13g for this detailed analysis. Be sure to check out his listing as he’s selling of the Gum PEs on ebay. Also, you can see the second version on the Nike Zoom LeBron II Listing page.

Remember the 20.5.5 Wheat Sample that popped out of nowhere last year? Looks like Nike followed the pattern with its successor – Nike Zoom Soldier – and made a Wheat version of LeBron’s last year’s Playoffs shoes. This time, the Camo Soldier, which is living up to its name, shares several similarities to the Sole Bar exclusive Soldier I aka Soledier, for example the laser etched camouflage pattern on the straps and ankle collar. Also it has a translucent gum outsole just like the Wheat 20.5.5’s. The toe cap is made of an abrasion resistant textile that has somewhat of a sandpaper like feel. It would be great if LBJ decided to rock them cause they would look good with Cavs home unis. Props to the guys at solecollector.com, good to see the site up again!
