It might take a while for Nike Basketball to be ready for Lebron’s Decision 2.0 to come back to Cleveland. After all the very first version of the LeBron 12 is still in Miami’s vibrant colors. Not to mention that James is still undecided on what number to wear on his new jersey come October. His previous jersey change was one of the reasons for a new signature logo. The new logo is number-less, but if LBJ goes back to #23 should the old logo come back? One thing is certain… we need to get used to Wine and Gold instead of Teal and Pink and the new NIKEiD option for the Nike Soldier 8 is a great example. It’s also an opportunity to design your own Cavs inspired LeBrons before Nike starts releasing them on their own. Truth be told, back in the Cleveland era, there were only a few 100% Cavs styles released because most of the colorways were based on Red. Now with the Nike Soldier 8 option available on Nike iD you can take advantage of this interesting build and design something truly special. Check out a couple of random designs below.

LeBron James is still rolling with the Soldiers, but the Manu Ginobili of the San Antonio Spurs provided us with the Nike LeBron 11 sighting in Game One of the NBA Finals. Last night, he sported a Grey and Gold colorway, but turns out he has at least three different versions ready to go. All of them look pretty nice. Kind of makes me wish he would have exchanged his kicks with King James.

Joining the Everglades LeBron 11’s that are scheduled to be released tomorrow, Nike is set to debut a new option on Nike iD that lets fans make their own Everglades colorways. Inspired by Florida’s Everglades region, this customisable NIKEiD version offers a wild palette of options for you to create a shoe that reflects you, from upper to outsole including options for a speckled upper and glow-in-the-dark outsole. I must say Nike’s exemplary mockup looks really nice. Which one do you prefer Nike iD or regular style?

When Nike announced the Gumbo NIKEiD option for the LeBron 11 they said it will be available for a limited time and they kept their word. It wasn’t just for hype. The regular LeBron 11 iD has many color options, compared to the last year’s model, but the Gumbo version allowed for a nearly endless array of combinations. Mixing different patterns on the upper and choosing different colors for front and back outsole was a lot of fun. Here’s one of the creations sent by our reader Angel. It channels the South Beach theme, sort of, but in a whole new way. Let us know about your own Gumbo iD creations. In order to get your pics up use the contact form, or Twitter, or Facebook.

Last season, LeBron James took his talents to Nike iD to create the LeBron X Carmex iD, which he did actually wear at MSG. Turns out, there’s a very similar Carmex version for the Nike LeBron 11, but it’s highly unlikely for LeBron to try out some new 11’s before the season ends. He will probably stick with the Soldiers or the Elite version, which hopefully suits him better. The Carmex LeBron 11, presented below, is a Player Exclusive version, but it is also possible to cook up a similar design using Nike iD. For some reason yellow works very well on the 11’s. Same goes for the Fairfax PE.

Since the debut of the original South Beach shoe back in 2010, Nike often finds a way to rediscover Teal and Pink within LeBron James’ signature collection… one way or another. This season the are going to just do it on more time with a South Beach version of the LeBron 11 that is slated for June. Apart from the palm-tree texture on the Hyperposie it’s your standard South Beach sneaker. However, if you wanted to re-create the LeBron 8, NIKEiD LeBron XI, which is sold out at the moment, allows for a very close implementation compared to the original. Below there’s an exemplary LeBron 11 iD build designed by Awsome Blossom plus a couple of comparison pics with the OG model and even the Slides. Which one would you rather have… Nike’s GR or this iD?

Beginning this week, NIKEiD is allowing you to “create the unreal” by adding gumbo-flavored details to some of its hottest silhouettes. Below is a look at a few of the NIKEiD Gumbo samples currently on display in New Orleans for the NBA All-Star Weekend. Wild colors and prints can be added to the Nike LeBron 11. The possibilities are endless. Are you going to give it a go?

Nike has improved the Nike iD platfrom a lot over the years. Today’s updates should satisfy all the nay-sayers in terms of the number of options available to customize the Nike LeBron XI. In the past in was difficult to use different colors in various sections of the shoe. Now you can color pretty much everything! You can style both swoosh logos and the tongue logo independently. You can also use different colors for the forefoot and heel portions of the outsole and even change the midfoot shank. Finally… you can mix the Chroma, Forging Iron, Graffiti, Speckle and Solid options altogether and if you like to glow there are five different glow-in-the-dark effects to use on the outsole. Actually it would be a lot easier to say what can’t be done because the possibilities for what can be done seem to be endless right now. Head over to nikestore.com and please try to prove me wrong. The Gumbo collection will be up for about 6 weeks, unless the materials run out sooner, but the biggest downside is the extended waiting period (up to 8 weeks).
