In order to continue our look back at the initial “LEBRONS” we profile the coolest of them all – Business. Like his alter ego, All-Business, LeBron knows how to get the job done. The slick business/ladies man. Often too busy talking on his cell phone to participate in other activities. These shoes, one of four LeBron Nike Zoom III colorways that represent a character in the “LeBrons” commercials, are defined by All-Business’s incomparable class. More pics after the jump plus you can find couple extra in our previous post here.

With two days till the release of the new LEBRONS, we wanna bring you the originals a little closer. For that reason we dug up some old pics featuring both the shoes and the doll. Let’s start with the WISE. Like his alter ego, Wise, LeBron cannot be confused with an inexperienced rookie. The old sage that keeps LeBron grounded. Often makes references to his own basketball prowess, claiming to have performed a quadruple double in the state championship. He also likes to tell Athlete LeBron what “Michael” did, referring to Michael Jordan. These shoes, one of four LeBron Nike Zoom III colorways that represent a character in the “LeBrons” commercials, reflect Wise’s one-of-a-kind personality. See more pics after the jump and also here.

Let’s catch up with The LEBRONS as we try to present all four characters and all three Vinyl sets that were released by Upper Deck. Also, check out the other pages of this post (links below) as we bring back the first edition of the LEBRONS shoes (Zoom LeBron III). Enjoy! Wise LeBron – By far the best dancer of the bunch, Wise LeBron is known to cut a rug to Super Freak by Rick James (no relation). As the patriarch of the house, Wise LeBron is one part teacher, one part preacher. He keeps his suspenders high on the fiber flowin’. Kid LeBron – Notorious for his extreme candy habit and love for practical jokes, Kid LeBron has a hard enough time passing the butter, let alone the ball. Also known for his love of professional wrestling, Kis is known to drop a soaring axe-handle from the top rope on unsuspecting victims. Athlete LeBron – From droppin’ dimes, to rackin’ up boards, to scorin’ baskets, Athlete LeBron could rock a triple-double blind-folded with one arm ties behind his back. Business LeBron – ‘Fro tight, lookin’ fly, with creases in his slacks that can cut stone, All-Business LeBron is famous for his smooth walk and silky talk. His only flaw is his tendency to leave grease spots on the couch.

By the way… here are some of “The LEBRONS” commercials from both seasons (ZLIII and ZLIV):

Season One: Butter | Glory Days | New Shoes Season Two: Swimming Pool | 2 on 2 | Dunk Contest

All the info and pics featuring all four LEBRONS characters was provided by Sole Collector. Big thanks!

For release details, be sure and check out the Zoom LeBron VI ‘Business’ post, but now lets take a look at our old-timer of the family, the Glory Days rekindler himself, Wise LeBron! Pops was certainly no slouch back when he would [allegedly] put up Chamberlain-type numbers, and while he might not hit that sky hook these days, he at least is known to relax around the mansion in style. You’ll immediately notice the Zoom LeBron VI ‘Wise’ takes on even more materials than the other three shoes in the pack, namely featuring a cherrywood red plaid along the upper, a medium grey sweater-like wool along the toe and Swoosh, and a deep cherrywood premium leather along the toe cap support overlay, eyestay and collar. This variation also includes a black leather wrapped midsole, white synthetic leather ankle collar, and gold accents along the liner, Swoosh border and logo accents. And just like the other three sneakers in the pack, the Zoom LeBron VI ‘Wise’ incorporates details like Wise LeBron’s glamour shot on the underside of the tongue, and his hat-tipping silhouette along the liner and underside of the ankle collar logo hit.

For release details, be sure and check out the Zoom LeBron VI ‘Business’ post, but lets give some shine to the youngin’ of the group – Kid LeBron! Of course the most lighthearted and carefree of the group, Kid LeBron is simple and easy going, much like his shoe. With a tonal varsity royal upper, this sneaker is just right for Kid’s closet full of track suits, and features a ballistic mesh upper with simple hits of premium leather along the toe cap support overlay, eyestay and collar. The midsole is a straightforward white leather wrap with tonal white stitching for reinforcement, and the rest of the upper is accented by low-key details like an image of Kid listening to his favorite Jay-Z song, his silhouette along the liner and underside of the collar logo hit, and the same ‘The LeBrons’ tagging along the tongue that each shoe in the pack includes. Cushioning is provided by a full-length Zoom Air unit – oh, and double-stacked Zoom in the heel – just because.

For release details, be sure and check out the Zoom LeBron VI ‘Business’ post, otherwise, lets dive right on into the Zoom LeBron VI ‘Athlete’! In a sweet grey based colorway with hits of baltic blue and black along the upper, this Zoom LeBron VI, styled by Nike Basketball graphic designer Erick Goto, is inspired by King James and his off-court style. The upper is made of a matte silver jersey cotton-like material, surely a first for the LeBron signature series, while the toe cap support overlay is made of a rich and soft microsuede. These joints tell a great texture story, but the shoe is also highlighted by the hits of baltic blue along the tongue, lateral collar and semi-translucent outsole. The midsole is fabric wrapped with a unique graphite synthetic, and each of the stitch lines along the midsole incorporate a different contrasting color from the shoe. Just like the ‘Business,’ the Zoom LeBron VI ‘Athlete’ also includes several undercover details like LeBron’s mug on the underside of the tongue, his hoopin’ silhouette along the liner and on the underside of the lateral logo hit, and of course ‘The LeBrons’ hit along the tongue. A touch that I personally like is the break-up of the midsole along the heel, where the white foam wedge speeds up the shoe a bit.

Following yesterday’s news…

Nike Basketball is celebrating The LeBrons this fall, and they’re dropping a shoe for each character this Saturday, October 25th! The four character set of LeBron James’ personalities of course includes Kid LeBron, Athlete LeBron, Business LeBron and Greg Oden Wise LeBron, and four versions of the Zoom LeBron VI, limited to 150 pairs each, will be released to tell the unique story of the King’s traits. Six stores will be receiving the pack this Saturday, including the House of Hoops locations in Harlem and Los Angeles, as well as NIKETOWN and Sportsland in Chicago, and Miami’s Shoe Gallery and Cleveland’s Next. Word is that King James himself may be in the building at Next’s Friday night launch party to help celebrate the release of his newest signature shoe. The shoes will be sold individually, and each store is slated to receive 25 pairs of each version, accounting for 100 pairs at each of the six doors. The ‘Business’ iteration of the Zoom LeBron VI conveys the smooth savvy and mature demeanor of Business LeBron’s personality. This man’s swag is undeniable. The upper consists of a pinstriped black wool, similar to the ‘Yankee’ Zoom LeBron V, used on the dominant panel that is drafted off of his trademark suit, and also includes premium black leather along the midsole and toe support overlay for some added texture and quality. A soft grey fabric highlights the heel collar and toe for a nice contrast from the rest of the upper, as well as a more dressy feel. The shoe is also full of details that might otherwise go unnoticed, as the underside of the tongue includes an image of Business, while the tongue includes a ‘The LeBrons’ call-out. Underneath the LeBron logo along the lateral collar and also along the insole, you’ll also find Business’ silhouette in red, and there’s subtle hits of red along the logos and liner as well. Each shoe in the pack has been styled by Nike Basketball’s graphic designer Erick Goto, and there’ll surely be quite a frenzy this weekend at each of the six aforementioned release locations.

header zlvi lebrons comeback The LEBRONS are Planning to Make a Comeback With the SIX!

Those, who have been following the Nike LeBron signature shoes from the beginning, surely remember The LEBRONS ad campaign, which ruled the industry 3 years ago. In my opinion it was the best kicks campaing in the recent years, cause it was both funny and captured the LeBron James persona just perfectly. I’m glad to announce that the four we missed so much – KID, WISE, ATHLETE, and BUSINESS – are planning to make a return along with King James’ newest sneaker Nike Zoom LeBron VI. The IIIs, which dropped a little over 2 years back, retailed for $200 with 100 pairs of each being released to public. This time, according to the House of Hoops, who is the source for this information, 150 pairs of each LeBron will be released nation wide. Each shoe will be numbered “1 of 150″, similar to the the WITNESS GOLD ZLVI. Apparently, the HOHNY won’t be the only store to carry these. Six different spots are rumored to have these, but so far there’s no more information to confirm that.

THE LEBRONS: Business | Athlete | Kid | Wise
