Nike LeBron Soldier 12 Debuts for Playoffs

This spring you won’t find LeBron James doing it for the ‘gram. Nope, everything he’s doing is for the ‘ship. The Nike LeBron Soldier 12 sees the King’s second signature series continuing its postseason positioning while playing to #23’s social media absence.

Debuting in the triple-black “Dark 23” colorway, it is uncertain when LeBron will lace them given the excitement surrounding his PE program — aka #LeBronWatch — that while remiss at retail is still seeing dope do-ups like his recent BB4 homage.

Still, the Soldier series has never been all about ‘Bron as the next generation has always worn and informed the line. Using feedback from amateur and professional players alike, the postseason driven Soldier 12 is all about stripped-down toughness.

“The Soldier was always meant to be stripped down in the best possible way,” Jason Petrie told Nike SNKRS. “Even early on, LeBron’s insight was that the playoffs and the regular season are different. The Soldier has always been about toughness and connecting to the playoffs, in particular.”

The result is a focused piece of footwear built around aspects of the LeBron 15 like a circular knit upper and protective heel and toe caps, bolstered by a wider range of Velcro for more malleable lockdown and uniquely shaped Zoom Air units for lightweight bounce and court feel.

Look for the Nike LeBron Soldier 12 “Dark 23” to drop on April 25 for $ 140. Peep detailed shots of the shoe and design process below.

Kanye West Debuts New adidas Yeezy 700

The adidas Yeezy 500 may be the shoe of choice for Kanye West’s famous family and friends, but when it comes to the man with the laptop he’s all about the adidas Yeezy 700.

Often seen in the V2 styling, Ye was caught out and about wearing a new take on the original.

Graced in what looks like grey but could pass for plum, this semi tonal take finds contrast in the form of yellow accents on the midsole.

Release details are unknown but expect new shoes and a new album sometime in the future based on this new pic below.

Air Jordan 1 High Zip Debuts for Women

The newly vindicated Air Jordan 1 High Zip, one of three components that encapsulate Jordan Brand’s spring 2018 women’s collection, is undeniably the largest risk among the stellar offering. Its high arching, laceless frame, disrupts the classic tone and stance of the Air Jordan 1. Doing so in a method that promotes creativity and challenges longtime fans of the shoe to view it from a modern lens.

Removed from traditional lacing to springboard zipped closure, Jumpman branded zippers begin at the base above the toebox and extend beyond reach of the ankle collar. This allows the tongue at act as an inner cushioning system while a Nike Air tab logo on the tongue adds nostalgia to this contemporary update.

Expect the Air Jordan 1 High Zip to release on March 8 for a retail price of $ 150.

Jordan Brand Debuts Russell Westbrook’s Jordan Why Not Zer0.1

After debuting the shoe on-court last night for the very-first time, Jordan Brand today officially debuts Russell Westbrook’s inaugural on-court signature shoe — the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1.

Encapsulating both his personal style and life mantra, “Why Not,” the shoe is defined by its smooth vamp tailored to meet Russ’ dynamic game. Forefoot containment is critical as Westbrook plays high on his toes and needs maximum stability. To ensure this truth, Jordan Brand worked closely with the Thunder’s equipment manager, Wilson Taylor, as Russ would wear test the shoe and Taylor would respond back with progress reports.

Russ debuted a PE edition of the “Mirror” colorway last night, which highlights both Westbrook’s likeness and Jumpman branding. Yet it’s the “2 Wy” edition that will debut at retail as it’s a greater juxtaposition of Russ’ game-changing presence both on and off the court.

Take a look at the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 below and expect the launch on January 15 for $ 125.

Kyrie Irving Debuts Nike Kyrie 3 “Fear” PE Against Magic

For the first time this season, the Boston Celtics broke out their new Nike Statement NBA jerseys against the Orlando Magic on Friday. And quite appropriately, Celtics star Kyrie Irving made a statement with his performance and kicks as he unveiled his new Nike Kyrie 3 “Fear” PE.

Featuring a black and neon green colorway, this PE of the Kyrie 3 also features subtle graphic detailing on the upper. The neon green is featured with Irving’s signature logo on the tongue and on the outsole.

Here’s the inspiration for the shoes from @Beensmoove:

Fear is the motivator that drives us to pursue greatness. Without fear we aren’t aggressive, we aren’t focused. Fear is the reality that everything that we value and work for can disappear in an instant. It is up to us to accept that fear is real but it is what we do with fear that separates the good from the great.

The Nike Kyrie 3 “Fear” was likely created just for Irving so don’t expect them to be released anytime soon. But hopefully Irving will lace these PEs up again, especially since he had quite the game in them as he finished with 30 points, four rebounds and three assists in Boston’s 118-103 win over the Magic.

LeBron James Debuts Nike LeBron 15 “Long Live The King”

After a less than stellar start to the season, LeBron James single-handedly got his team back on track last night with a monumental 57 point performance against the Washington Wizards. James pulled this off in the “Ghost” colorway of his newly released Nike LeBron 15. But it was what he pulled out before the game that had everyone buzzing.

Nike LeBron 15 designer Jason Petrie went on record in months past and stated that along with zipped pairs of the 15, there would also be a strapped edition. James debuted the very-first pair of the latter last night.

Dressed in olive-green BattleKnit with a navy strap that snakes across the upper reading “Long Live The King,” James couldn’t have picked a more fitting night to break out his statement shoe. Grab a closer look at the Nike LeBron 15 Strap “Long Live The King” below and stay tuned for more details.
