We’ve already seen how the LeBron X looks like inside out. Literally! Now it’s time for the other LeBron James’ signature shoe – the Nike Zoom Soldier VI. The Soldier 6 is an ultra light, very responsive ride that uses Hyperfuse upper and two Zoom Air bags for cushioning. Additionally, unlike the previous two installments, Nike has refreshed the series with a more unique look. It still uses the trademark midfoot strap, though. Be sure to check out both pages for a detailed look at the Nike Soldier VI… cut in pieces.

This is how King James rocked his USA Basketball LeBron X’s in the Gold Medal game during the 2012 Olympic Games in London. And this is how Nike released them a couple of months later. Personally, I prefer the original version, but still think the Gold Medal colorway is one of the better ones this season. Basically, the only major difference between the two is the Red Swoosh seen on James’ Player Exclusive model and Gold metallic swoosh on the GR (putting aside the lacelock, of course). However, turns out it goes a long way. Similar to all other regular colorways, which suffer a lot from the flat-Swoosh syndrome.

Air Max based running and training shoes are LeBron James’ common choice for off-court casual wear. The presented Nike Air Max 2011 in the USA Basketball colorway was used by King James during the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Apart from the classic white, navy and red make up, the shoes sport the new LBJ signature logo on the back of the shoe.Read the rest of this entry »
This summer’s Olympic gold medal game gave the world its first look at the Nike LeBron X+. It was also the second colorway that was released to public in very limited numbers. Now, even after 8 drops of the Ten, the USA Basketball version is still one of the best. Most of the other colorways are using dark colors, but what’s fascinating about this style is the White Hyperfuse upper, which proves very high quality in person. The Gold Medal colorway is draped in the requisite red, white and blue, complete with a Gold Medal swoosh and lace lock. That’s the only difference between the pair LeBron wore in London and this retail model.Read the rest of this entry »

The first batch of LeBron X’s has already been launched through Asia channels and it’s about time to focus on the shoe itself, instead of counting endless new colorways, which fans may or may not get in the end. Nightwing2303 has posted a video review along with his first impressions giving us an insight at LeBron James’ new signature sheos. The LeBron X is packed with new Nike technology including the Nike Plus Basketball. Among other things worth mentioning are the new cushioning (Zoom Max), which apparently feels quite nice, the Hyperfuse material is soft and thick unlike the rubbery type of Fuse used on the Hyperdunk 2012, and several nice LBJ signature details scattered around the shoe. Check out the whole video after the break.Read the rest of this entry »
Over the weekend we mentioned about the alternate packaging for the USA Basketball colorway of the Nike LeBron X+. We hoped for a wider release, but the presented white box with gold details turns out to be a limited “United We Rise” edition that was available in China to commemorate LeBron’s recent tour. Actually, only eight units were released to lucky fans, who attended the event. New photos featuring this special USAB make up have surfaced the Internet. Even without the fancy box it’s still the best look available for the upcoming LeBron X+ with nearly 30 pictures posted below. There’s still no official release information for U.S. fans, but according to some unofficial sources these could drop on October 6th, 2012.Read the rest of this entry »
