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.

The latest colorway of the Nike LeBron XI features Obsidian uppers framed by the white Hyperposite panels and University Red Swoosh. A colorful red, white and blue graphic adorns in the lining and shank. Releasing tomorrow at Nike Basketball retailers just in time for a proper 4th of July celebration. The Independence Day LeBron 11 is a very late addition to the LeBron 11 collection, but how do these rank against other styles?

We still await technical details on the Nike Zoom Soldier VIII, but quite a few things are obvious. The shoe incorporates Dynamic Flywire, Zoom Air cushioning, a new traction pattern, but most importantly a completely new midfoot strap solution with a zip-up system. Before we get into the discussion if King James is going to wear the Soldier 8 instead of the LeBron 12 next season, which I think would be a total fail on Nike’s part, let’s take a closer look at the upcoming USA Basketball colorway and a couple of angles showing the zippered collar.
