In our previous NBA Kicks report we mentioned about the very first wearings of the Nike LeBron 8 V/2 other than on LeBron James’ feet. Yesterday, shortly after Carmelo Anthony’s departure from Denver was announced, J.R. Smith decided to wear the Pre-Dunkman 8’s, after having played in the initial colorway couple games earlier. Even King James hasn’t worn that style yet, but he’s got alternate PEs.

We usually get to see a lot of the Soldier wearings on both NBA and College basketball courts, but the main signature shoe is mostly worn by King James himself. Still, there are some players in the NBA that have been wearing The Eight this season. Some of them are LBJ’s Miami Heat teamates – Mike Miller and James Jones (China) – while others include Nate Robinson of the Boston Celtics (Triple Black) and Eric Bledsoe the Los Angeles Clippers (Veteran’s Day, V/2).

Soldiers – the Zoom Soldier III in this case – are a frequent guest in our Wearing Brons segment. They are are a part of the LeBron James signature series, but they also come out in most popular team colors. The next installment is most likely to become a 100% team shoe, because the Post Season VII is replacing Soldiers for the Playoffs this year. We usually don’t get to see much of the numbered line on NBA courts, but several players have recently decided to wear the All Black Air Max LeBron VII. Continue reading for photos featuring Marcus Banks, Nate Robinson, George Hill, and Jason Williams sporting the AMLVII.

Nate Robinson has been known to wear popular signature shoes from time to time including Kobes, LeBrons, and other Nike basketball sneakers. Usually he utilizes Nike iD to customize his kicks (Kobe IV, Zoom BB II) in order to match ’em with Knicks vibrant colors. However, it’s not that easy to do with LBJs. There’s no shortcut for personalizing LeBron’s kicks and that’s probably why he’s been seen wearing universal all Black colorways (f.e. ZLIV and ZLVI). Fortunatelly, one of Cleveland’s Hardwood Classic themes is a mirrored style of the NYK native colors. While most of HWC Nike LeBron shoes are Player Exclusives, there’s one exception that did make it all the way to retail – Zoom LeBron IV Birthday Limited Edition. In yesterday’s game against the Orlando Magic, Nate sported the Bday IV’s and as you might have guessed it was a perfect match. Stay tuned for James’ response as Cavs are about to kick off their latest Hardwood Classics campaign on Wednesday, December 2nd. Luckily enough their new HWC jerseys look like this. If LeBron is going to New York in 2010 he won’t run out off NYC themed kicks… that’s for sure.

In today’s edition of “Wearing Brons” we review NBA courts, but we don’t focus on King James. This time, we find other NBA players, who use/used the latest Nike LeBron sneakers – Zoom LeBron 6. Nate Robinson, broke out the Triple Black Six long before LBJ did, and in the past few games he has been wearing the All Black Six again. Jeff Green of the Oklahoma City Thunder, who rocked the Soldiers last preseason, has switched his Nike Powermax and in the last two games he was seen rocking the Yankees Edition. More pics of both LeBron ballers after the jump. Do you know any other NBA players who put on LBJ kicks from time to time? If so please do let us know.
