Remember this? LeBron’s USA Basketball LeBron 12 PE was one of the most creative designs of the season and my personal favorite! That U.S.A. flag one the posite panels beats every Nike iD option that’s been thrown at us including Instinct, Data, Chromosomes, Court Vision and Floral patterns. Turns out there’s an alternate version of the Veteran’s Day design and the best part is that is just might come out to public in the upcoming months. There is no concrete sneaker release date information for this pair yet, but with the USA low-tops already out, it’s possible that the LeBron 12 “Independence Day” will arrive around the 4th of July. Keep your fingers crossed and let us know which would do you like better… Red or Grey?

The USA’s came early this year. Usually Nike releases a pair in July / August, but this year it’s one of the launch colorways to kick start the LeBron XII Low campaign. The latest LeBron 12 low-top in the presented USA / Cavs colorway hits stores today. Nike has opted to move away from the obvious Red, Blue and White combination and this time it’s a classy White and Gold with Navy trim that’s ideal for a spring release… especially with a gum outsole sitting below. White and Gold have always been a winning combination, and it obviously connects with James’ Team USA roots, who has two Olympic golds on his resume. Let us know if you plan to add these to your LeBron James’ signature collection and check out the official images below.

Last night, LeBron’s old friends from the Miami Heat squad paid him a visit the The Q. Feeling a bit nostalgic before his game King James showed up wearing the LeBron 9 “Watch the Throne” PE. In he game he decided to debut the upcoming USA colorway of the Nike LeBron 12 Low, which marks just the second time this season not using the mid version (he also wore the Ambassador 7 back in February). In his new low-tops, which debut next week, James had 23 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 assists to help the Cleveland Cavaliers cruise past the Miami Heat 114-88. By doing so he passed Patrick Ewing for 20th on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.

It’s almost April, which means that the Elite and low-top versions are about to take over the LeBron 12 silhouette. For the Nike LeBron XII Low it means a lighter looking design ideal for the upcoming warmer weather. The new version channels the Acid Lion colorway of the LeBron 11 Low by using a gum outsole, however, the new design features a white upper base. It’s something we’d expect closer to July and the annual USA Basketball / Independence Day make ups, but the presented White, Midnight Navy, University Red and Metallic Gold could also pass as a nice Cavs themed sneaker. The “USA / Cavs” LeBron 12 Low is scheduled to be released on Thursday, April 9th for $175.

LeBron has already proved he’s the biggest sneakerhead in the NBA. In 5 games played this season he rocked 6 different shoes. For Hoops for Troops week, LeBron James breaks out his latest Nike LeBron 12 “Veteran’s Day” PE – a grey, red, white and blue tribute to America. Classic royal blue Hyperposite overlays a grey mesh base, with red working the inner lining. Stars and Stripes detailing has been added to the straps on the heel, while a translucent icy outsole caps off the look below. Apparently the posite section on the LeBron XII is great for graphics. The execution here is flawless, in my opinion. Enjoy the look below.

The Nike Zoom Soldier 8’s stock continues to rise in the eyes of fans everywhere, since LeBron opted to rock them more often than his signature shoe in this past season’s playoff run. In this rendition, the sneaker gets a USA Basketball treatment which is done with mature and cool composure rather than a loud mix which sometimes happens with patriotic color schemes. Leather takes the backseat for this one, as synthetics structure the entire upper, seen most strikingly on a university red strap and Dynamic Flywire of the same shade. Obsidian outlines the model’s sharp lines, with white residing on the base and branding. King James won’t rock these at 2014 FIBA World Cup, but we can. The USAB Soldier 8’s drop tomorrow at Nike Basketball retailers like Footaction.

It really seems that the all new Nike Soldier 8 will follow the great path of the Soldier 7 as folks at Nike Basketball were able to improve on the design of the shoe. Aesthetically, it’s up to you to decide if it’s an upgrade or not, but after a brief episode with the 8’s the performance is just as good or even better. Previously I had an issue with the laces, but the new model fixed that. It’s all in the details. DeMarcus Cousins who is a part of Team USA has recently posted a closer look at the USA Basketball colorway of the Zoom Soldier VIII.
