King James has an unwritten tradition of wearing new Player Exclusive colorways whenever he’s playing against the Portland Trailblazers. Usually it’s when the game is being played in Oregon where he’s very close to Nike Headquarters in Beaverton therefore he can get the shoes straight from the oven. Usually it’s the main signature shoe getting the new style, but last night it was LeBron’s go-to shoe for this season, which is the Nike Zoom Soldier VII. Last night he laced up a fresh White and Yellow colorway with Black Nike logos. He hit the game-winning layup with 11 seconds left in the game, which adds up to the impressive resume of achievements for the Nike Soldier 7, which already includes the 61-point game. Continue reading for a detailed look at the shoes.

A new colorway of the Nike Zoom Soldier VII joins what’s already a very impressive line up of colorways for the next month’s drop. The presented Hyper Fuschia/Tour Yellow-Raspberry Red features a Pink graphic overlay, Blue midsole and laces with Yellow Nike branding. A translucent blue outsole completes the colorful look. The inspiration for this brand new Nike Soldier 7 make up remains unknown, but we already have a release date, which is set to Saturday, November 9th. Is the Hyper Fuschia colorway something you would consider for a pickup over other strong contenders like the Coconut Groove or Power Couple styles?

By my count there are 24 different colorways of the Nike Zoom Soldier VII that you can just go out and buy right now (11 signature, 8 team bank, 5 “camo-strap”). That’s an awful lot. This is somewhat reflected in the updated listings, which now contain 33 Soldier 7 styles that were unveiled thus far. Eastbay alone has 17 distinct colorways listed and their newest addition is one of the most anticipated make ups. The “Pop Art” Soldier VII is available for purchase in the full size run starting today. Apparently these also go by the name Coconut Groove… the oldest modern continuously-inhabited neighborhood of Miami, Florida in Miami-Dade County. It’s a good old plain General Release so don’t bother paying more than retail, which has been set to $125. As usual, a set of like the nicest pics around awaits you after the break.Read the rest of this entry »
Folks at long-7 are back with scissors and this time around we have the Nike Zoom Soldier VII torn in pieces. It’s very interesting to see the guts, because the Soldiers usually come with front and back Zoom Air units, but seems like they’re getting smaller each year. I really liked the re-boot of the series initiated with the Soldier 6, and I feel this new version has improved a lot, but the thin Zoom Air bags really need to go. The Soldier 7 has a lightweight frame, offers a great fit, but the only thing missing is a more pronounced cushioning system. I hope Nike is not trying to cut costs here because the retail price has been raised, after all. Let me know if you tried the shoes on court and feel the same about the tooling or if you prefer the low court feel instead.Read the rest of this entry »
Seems like every other day we get a new version of the Nike Soldier VII to look at. It would appear that with the NIKEiD option available for the first time in the Soldier series things might slow down a bit. On the contrary, we are three months in and we’re already approaching ten signature styles and at least another dozen of Team Banks. Here’s a preview of one of the upcoming colorways, which is expected to be released later this month. The presented colorway of the Zoom Soldier VII was inspired by Roy Lichtenstein’s Pop Art movement. It features a Laser Orange upper, which is probably closer to Yellow than Orange, with the popular Gamma Blue color on the outsole, Black ankle collar and a very unique design on the midfoot strap. Unfortunately Nike doesn’t announce exact release dates for the Soldier line so it’s difficult to pinpoint the actual release date for these joints. Keep checking back for updates on the availability of all SOLDIER 7 styles.

Nike Basketball continues their ongoing campaign of flooding Asian markets with multiple colorways of secondary signature series endorsed by the company’s marquee stars. For LeBron James it means either a new version of the Ambassador series or the more casual ST Series. Here’s a look at the latest Grey and Yellow colorway of the Nike LeBron ST II that has appeared at Nike retailers in China. Nike released a similar predominantly Yellow make up for the main low-top kicks for this season – the Air Max LeBron X Low – a couple months back. It’s a common practice to share styles between different series.Read the rest of this entry »
There are more than enough of Soldier 7 colorways to choose from, but this is the one I’m looking forward to the most. The “Pop Art” Nike Soldier VII features a predominantly Yellow upper sitting on top of a mint outsole. Mint also graces the Black Swoosh on the border, but the highlight of the shoe is definitely the artistic design on the midfoot strap. Stick around for a word on the release once available. Let us know if you will be picking up a pair and is it better than other strong colorways like Joker or Galaxy.Read the rest of this entry »
LeBron James has already debuted the sixth installment of the Ambassador series last month, but Nike is still not done with the current iteration – the Air Max Ambassador 5. Here’s the latest offering, which features a two-tone Sport Grey and Strata Grey upper with Yellow (Vivid Sulfur) details on the Swoosh branding and the Air Max tooling below. The upcoming Ambassador 6 uses the same platform with several upgrades on the upper, which include Dynamic Flywire.
