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.

Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 1 “25 Straight” Odes LeBron James’ Memorable 2007 ECF Moment

Nowadays there’s a lot of chatter surrounding LeBron James as the best basketball player of all time. An argument that only ruffles feathers when Michael Jordan enters the conversation. James is an unrivaled all-time great with the championships, MVPs and stats to reinforce said claim. But back in the late 2000s he was simply great, not yet an all-time great.

It would be the moments to come that would lift James into the upper echelon of hoops hierarchy. And while countless plays and games come to mind, his performance in Game 5 of the 2007 Eastern Conference Finals stand out among the most remarkable.

In a close game against a veteran Detroit Pistons team, James put the Cavs on his back and rattled off 25 straight points to lift his team to a thrilling 109-107 victory. LeBron finished the game just shy of a 50-piece with 48 points, shooting 11 for 13 on those final 25 points.

Nike’s “Championship Think 16” Pack honors this historic moment in Bron history with not only a special edition “25 Straight” release, but the very first retro of his Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 1. The colorway closely replicates the pair James wore on that faithful day in 2007 with a few special notations to commemorate the release.

The Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 1 “25 Straight” is set to drop on May 31 which, fittingly, marks the anniversary of that incredible Game 5.

LeBron Rocks Nike Air Force 1 “More Than An Athlete” Makers Custom Before All-Star Game

Still incensed by the comments Fox News’ Laura Ingraham made about him, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James sent a direct shot to her choice words with his choice of footwear before the 2018 NBA All-Star Game on Sunday.

Wanting to let Ingraham and his other critics know that he won’t “shut up and dribble,” James wore a custom pair of Nike Air Force 1 that had “More Than An Athlete” written one one side, deriving from the 90/10 custom creations from Nike’s Makers of the Game space in LA.

Peep photo of James’ custom AF1 below.

Nike Launches LeBron Watch Program

Nike tonight launches the LeBron Watch Program — a new initiative that follows James as he unveils PE iterations of the LeBron 15 inspired by iconic Nike athletes and the many Swoosh classics that they’ve worn. The King kicked off the program tonight by lacing up the Nike LeBron 15 “Waffle,” a sneaker inspired by the time-honored Nike Waffle Trainer from 1972.

James, a sports aficionado and sneaker fiend like many of us, grew up in the ’90s watching his favorite Swoosh athletes dominate their respective eras in signature styles and more. He odes their greatness with this innovative new program. And, what’s even more exciting, many of them will be up for grabs.

Now some of James’ new PEs he’ll keep to himself, but he’ll also make five of these PEs available to Nike members through Nike SNKRS. The shoes will be available as soon as he steps on the floor wearing them. Pretty cool, right?

“When I was a kid, the athletes and the shoes represented in this series inspired me to chase my dream of one day becoming a professional athlete,” recalls James. “It’s important to me to share these stories and inspiration with my fans. I want them to be a part of every step of my journey, so I’m excited we’re making these shoes available to them.”

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.
