Nike Zoom LBJ Ambasssador in Classic White-Red-Gold »

Sep 5, 2008 at 1:19 am | ambassador-ishoes

Here’s another look at one of the upcoming LeBron James kicks. This year’s summer shoe was the Soldier II, which with all the launched Team colorways and soon-to-be discovered the usual High School PEs, has still some life left. Consider this one – Zoom LBJ Ambassador – a bonus. Designed for outdoor basketball with China ballplayers, the Ambassador will join the 20-5-5s and the Soldiers as one of the most durable sneakers in the game. Nowadays, most of the shoes are designed for indoors only and can’t survive a beating on the blacktop. For example, don’t imagine the Hyperdunk lasting the whole summer of everyday balling, especially with the Lunar Foam inside. But, there is no one thing for everything, cause if it’s good for everything than it’s good for nothing. Gladly, Nike and LeBron are constantly developing the outdoor shoes, that with all the usual tech inside (front and back Zoom Air) and a very durable outsole (this time it’s XDR – Xtra Durable Rubber), are almost indestructible and a good performer as well. With only one colorway profiled so far we give you a look at this Cleveland Cavaliers inspired White/Red-Gold colorway. Pics via, thanks to abt for the heads up. More photos after the jump…

    ^Agree! It’s got great casual street appeal. Don’t know about balling in it though… that really doesn’t look like why this shoe was designed. Real court shoes tend to have design that sets them apart from street… this doesn’t have that.
