Here’s a detailed look at one of the new colorways of the Nike LeBron ST II, which is sold exclusively in the Asia / Pacific region. By my count it’s already the 8th version available on the market. The presented Tropical Teal and Pure Platinum style is reminiscent of the Summit Lake Hornets look with it’s Aqua and Purple detailing. With this being most likely the last version of the LEBRON ST II what is your take on this special LeBron James signature sneaker? Did you get one? Would you consider buying if they were broadly available? I know I would. Share your thoughts in the comments below.Read the rest of this entry »
Last year, I was on the fence regarding the SOLDIER 6. It was a solid upgrade over the SOLDIER 5, but none of the colorways really caught my eye. There were some interesting designs like the Ohio State, but I was really disappointed with how the Orange Camo came out in real life. PEs were great, though… Christmas, All-Star you name it. This season we have been granted with the Nike iD privilege for the SOLDIER 7, but Nike is still releasing great colorways. One of them is the presented Court Purple/Blueprint-Flash Lime edition which is usually associated with the Joker. Apart from the design, the Nike Zoom Soldier VII offers a slightly better fit over the last year’s model. There’s more padding on the inside, the toebox area doesn’t seem so huge anymore and the lockdown is more naturally placed. I only wish Nike would use bigger Zoom Air bags. They are still very light. Check out the detailed gallery below.

The Raspberry colorway of the Nike LeBron 10 Low was released last Saturday in the U.S. and it’s expected to drop this weekend in Europe. Nike also used this theme for a couple of other sneakers and also the Nike LeBron Slide 2. This includes the Asia exclusive Nike LeBron ST line as seen below in the Court Purple / Raspberry make up. The Nike LeBron ST II is a good alternative for whose who are looking for a LeBron James’ signature low-top, but prefer a less bulky frame than the LeBron X Low and its 360 Air Max tooling. None of the Nike LeBron ST kicks are available outside of the Asia / Pacific region, but you can easily find a pair online or on eBay for about $100.Read the rest of this entry »
The presented Flash Lime colorway of the Nike Soldier 7 was the first to hit the blogosphere back in December. It really gained momentum when it was selected as the go-to-sneaker for the 2013 LeBron James Skill Academy. As a side effect some (re)sellers were trying to make people want these even more by saying it’s the Skills Academy limited edition, 100 pairs made, yadda, yadda, yadda… and asking $1000+ for a pair. Fortunately, it’s a plain old General Release. They popped up last week at Polish retailer ataf.pl, hence the fancy title photo, and they’re now available in the U.S. at both eastbay.com and nikestore.com for $125. Continue reading for a detailed look and let us know if you plan to pick up a pair. Personally, this is my favorite Nike Soldier colorway in years!

Last week, the nation’s top 80 high school players and top 20 college players participated in the annual LeBron James Skills Academy in Las Vegas. It’s a tradition for Nike Basketball to prepare special basketball gear just for the event. This year, Nike used Purple and Volt as the main theme for the outfits matching one of the upcoming colorways of the Nike Zoom Soldier VII. Even King James laced them up.

There are at least 4 new colorways of the Nike Air Max LeBron X Low coming out in the upcoming weeks. One of the styles is the presented below Red Plum/Electric Green colorway reminiscent of that Mambacurial touch that’s been also applied to the Nike Zoom Kobe VIII. Additionally, Nike will launch the same style for the Nike Air LeBron 2 Elite Slides. This latest LeBron X low-top features a predominantly “raspberry” upper with complementary hits of purple as well. An additional pop is provided by hits of electric green, taking care of the logos, laces, and the 360 Air Max tooling below. Stay tuned to for further details on all upcoming Nike LeBron drops.

Can cool looking colorways like this save the Nike LeBron X Low at all? Another vibrant colorway takes over this new LeBron James’ lowtop – the Air Max LeBron X Low by Nike Basketball. The new style for features a Mercurial-esque look known from the Cristiano Ronaldo signature collection, which has recently been applied to the Nike Kobe VII “Mambacurial”. The shoes sports a Purple upper with Black contrasting panels over the tongue and the midsole. The vibrant appearance is continued with Neon Green accents over the Swoosh logo, and along the 360 Max Air tooling sitting below. Stay tuned for release details, but it seems like it’s been locked for this summer.

Here’s the initial look at the seventh installment of the Soldier series – the Nike Zoom Soldier VII. I’m not sure what I like more here… the shoe itself or this interestingly looking Black, Purple and Volt colorway. The Soldier VII continues the new look that was introduced with the ZSVI and also draws inspiration from the current LeBron X, i.e. the reversed Swoosh on the back and the second Swoosh one on the toe box.
