We’ve seen the Dunkman 11’s a couple of times, but this time we’re granted with a preview of the Men’s version. The design has stayed the same… unfortunately. For some reason the most iconic theme in the LeBron James’ signature collection has become underwhelming in the recent years. I like how the original Dunkman logo has marked its return, which is pictured proudly on the insole, but that’s the coolest part of the shoe… the insole. That can’t be good news. What about you? Are you glad to see these coming out in men’s sizes? How to these rank compared to other colorways?

Not something we get to see every day, but here’s a sneaker gas mask made from a pair of the Nike Zoom LeBron IV in the Dunkman colorway. I’m not sure how this process works, but apparently it’s some kind of street art made by Freehand Profit. I must say the end result looks somewhat impressive, but put a Dunkman theme on anything and it just looks good. Just like with South Beach these days.Read the rest of this entry »
Adopting the Dunkman colorway has been a Nike LeBron tradition since the Zoom LeBron II. In the past, we’ve seen several exclusive Air Max make ups for LeBron James, including Dunkman-themed Air Max 90’s. You can usually catch LBJ in a pair of Air Max sneakers off the court, but he hasn’t been seen wearing any Dunkman PEs yet. This Nike Air Trainer 1.3 Max Breathe PE features all of the usual suspects of the Dunkman theme, complete with the Grey/Neon Green colorway, the new Dunkman logo on the heel, and the new L-crown-J logo on the tongue. In general the design looks similar to the last year’s LeBron 8 P.S. Check out other Dunkman shoes personalized for King James in The Collection.Read the rest of this entry »
Since Jason Petrie took over as the lead designed for the LeBron James collection at Nike Basketball, the Dunkman theme has returned to the main signature line in style. Before that the only shoes sporting the actual Dunkman logo that got released to public were the Soldiers. Despite, the last year’s version – LeBron 8 P.S. – mediocre success both LeBron VII and LeBron 9 have been very well received. Making use of a similar color scheme used on the VII, the LeBron 9 is dressed in the eye-catching Black & Volt color combination. The Dunkman logo on the back and a translucent outsole highlight a rather plain Black and Grey upper. Even Diddy was spotted wearing these not so long ago (pics below).

Earlier this week I broke the news on the Dunkman 9’s being available in two different versions. Both of them are almost identical, but nothing goes unnoticed for a sneakerhead. Back then it wasn’t certain, which one is the production model and it seems like both of them made retail. Last night Nike released Mango, Swingman and Dunkman styles. The last one has an alternate version… let’s call it Dunkman X Swingman as it features the Dunkman logo in classic Mean Green color with a part of the Swingman logo. It makes much more sense for the Griffey pair, but the good news, I guess, is you can get them both ways so it’s up to you to decide.Read the rest of this entry »
I’m pretty sure the upcoming Dunkman version of the Nike LeBron 9 will look like this. Black & Volt upper, 3M panels, and two sets of laces. The shoes are scheduled to drop this Friday and you can already find some pairs on eBay. However, the version featured below is slightly different. Everything is the same apart from one small detail. The Dunkman logo, which is located on the back of the shoe, is not the regular Dunkman, but Dunkman X Swingman… same as the one on the Griffeys. Apparently there’s some kind of a story behind it. We’re still waiting for Nike to spill the beans, though.Read the rest of this entry »
The Dunkman theme is coming back this year in style. Nike gave fans an opportunity to mock up some Dunkmans using the Nike iD platform, but there are still some limits… for example you can’t put the Dunkman logo on the back. The GR model, yes they are expected to be widely available so no more NDC crashing out, features a Dark Grey upper with “Mean Green” accents such as the Air Max unit and the outsole. The shoes feature 3M reflective panels and come with two sets of laces (both pictured below). The official release date is March 2nd, 2012.

After the new options have been released you can cook up your very own Dunkman styles of the Nike LeBron 9 thanks to the Nike iD program. However, if you still prefer the Nike way, the official Dunkman colorway will be released next month. Here are official photos of the popular Mean Green theme.Read the rest of this entry »
