Way back before his first Post Season line of shoes, LeBron James used to wear the Nike Soldier series in the NBA Playoffs. In 2007, playing in his fourth season, The King made his first Post Season appearance and led the Cleveland Cavaliers all the way to the NBA Finals. Back then Tim Duncan was […]

Throwback Thursday: Nike Soldier “Desert Storm” Alternate »

The “Desert Storm” concept applied for the Nike Zoom Soldier is one of my favorites. Too bad it’s never seen the light of the day. Fitting the name of the Nike Zoom Soldier line, Nike cooked up and buried a very interesting colorway featuring a camouflage pattern and gum soles. As it usually happens with […]

Last week we posted a detailed look at a very rare colorway of the Nike Zoom Soldier in a Wheat Camo colorway aka “Desert Storm.” There’s an equally unique pair that would have also made a great combat shoe, but features a predominantly black upper with camo inprint.

The first installement of the Soldier series has been “militarized” in many ways. It all started with the release of the “Sole-dier” edition, a collab shoe between the Swoosh and Sole Collector.

LeBron James wore a handful of sneakers in 2007 NBA Finals, but he never got to wear this one! Last month, we profiled a White&Gold colorway with WITNESS and FINALS 2007 stitched on the ankle area, but that one was actually worn by King James in Home games 3&4. The same Finals make up customized […]

In 2007, Nike wasn’t ready for LeBron James’ appearance in the NBA Finals. Seems like King James and the Cleveland Cavaliers weren’t prepared as well due to some serious broom action applied by the San Antonio Spurs’. Even though it took only four games to dispatch the Cavs, LeBron, being Nike’s marquee athlete, needed some […]

The Ohio State University was one of the first schools equipped by Nike’s LeBron brand. It was in fact the first college team to sport the famous L23 logo on their uniforms, and shoes, of course. However, this year a strange thing has happened. After repping the OSU with several insanely hot colorways each season, […]

Baseball cleats occupy a big part of the shoes industry, especially in the U.S.A. They have their own line of sneakers, including several signature models. However, every now and then they borrow some designs from basketball and make them into cleats. For example the Nike Huarache 2k4, which was a big hit on the ballpark. […]
