A couple of weeks too late for a truly 4th of July celebration, but the latest colorway of the Nike Air Max LeBron X Low in a patriotic make up drops tomorrow at Nike Basketball retailers. Officially labeled as the Squadrin Blue/Sunburst-Shaded Blue, this new LeBron 10 Low continues a long tradition of LeBron James’ USAB kicks. The new release aligns itself with sad news that King James is likely finished playing international basketball according to recent reports. Fortunately, there’s still time for James to make up his mind. The USA Basketball inspired colorway of the LeBron X Low retails at $165. Btw… Akrons are next.

Nike has prepared a patriotic USA Basketball colorway for the Nike Air LeBron X Low. It would be a perfect launch for the upcoming 4th of July, however, at this point there’s no indication that they are planned for the holiday next week. The USAB LeBron X Low features a navy blue upper with multicolored Flywire threads. Red hits the switched Swoosh logos that also feature an unique polka dot pattern, which is also seen over the inner collar lining. White midsole, and a translucent blue outsole complete the look. Check out other details on the photos below and stay tuned for release updates on all LeBron X styles.Read the rest of this entry »
The onslaught of new Nike Air Max LeBron X styles continues with the unveiling of this previously unseen USA Basketball-esque colorway. There are no USAB team games to be played this year, but it doesn’t stop Nike in creating this new patriotic make up. Today’s news line up nicely with the upcoming 4th of July holiday, however, it’s unlikely for the new LeBron James’ low-tops to drop so soon. Apart from the classic Navy, White and Red colorway, the LeBron X Low USAB sports additional modifications including the stitched on Nike Swoosh logos and the lionhead logo on the back of the tongue. Stay tuned for updates on all upcoming Air Max LeBron X Low colorways.Read the rest of this entry »
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 »
