‘Signal Blue’ Nike LeBron 15 Low Drops on June 30th

Nike is looking to expand the Nike LeBron 15 Low line up with a brand new Signal Blue colorway that’s scheduled to be released later this month.

It’s already the sixth colorway of this year’s low-tops and there’s not doubt the blue, grey and black Battleknit upper looks very appealing. I only wish Nike would experiment a little more on the midsole. All LeBron XV Lows have a white or almost white shade on that part of the shoe and I really feel there are more options that need to be explored.

Look for the Nike LeBron 15 Low ‘Signal Blue’ to release on June 30th at Nike Basketball retailers $150 USD.

Nike Uses Popular Energy Look for Upcoming LeBron Soldier 12 Release

Even though the Nike Soldier line is motivated to offer the best performance for playing basketball every now and then Nike tries to add more style in order to make them more appealing for casual wear.

For one of the upcoming colorways Nike used neutral grey tones and contrasting Red and Gold details. The concept is slightly reminiscent of the “Platinum” Air Yeezy 2. Personally, I find the heel part very interesting with a mysterious 2100 degree gold branding.

Look for this special LeBron Soldier 12 to drop at Nike Basketball retailers in the upcoming weeks. There’s no exact release date at the moment. It will be posted on the launch list once available.

The OG Colorway and LeBron Logo Grace the Nike Soldier 12

The ‘Champions Think 16′ collection continues and next month it’s going to bring us the ’25 Straight’ Nike Zoom Soldier, which is kind of a Retro release.

For the Nike LeBron Soldier 12, which finally launched yesterday for good, Nike is going to give us the same OG White, Navy and Gold colorway. On top of that they use the OG LBJ23 Nike logo to give us that throwback feeling. Finally the ‘Witness’ phrase is also making a comeback on the back of the shoe.

The ‘White/Navy’ Nike LeBron Soldier XII is scheduled to drop in May. Check out the catalog images below.

First Look at Upcoming Nike LeBron Soldier 12 ‘SVSM’ Home

The last time we got a chance to but a St. Vincent – St. Mary colorway at retail was the Zoom LeBron VI… almost 9 years ago!

Nike has turned things around and seems like we get another shot this year. It’s funny how Nike used the House of Hoops platform to kick off the Solider 1 with the first High School releases. Now they’re back to using HoH for the LeBron Watch releases and back to releasing school PEs to public.

The presented ‘SVSM’ SOLDIER XII offers a simple White and Green look, but I’m sure fans will appreciate the details including the IRISH on the strap, the Dunkman logo on the heel, and the Fighting Irish logo on the insole.

Check out the gallery below and stay tuned to for release information once available.

Nike LeBron 15 – Bright Crimson and Sail – Drops on May 3rd

Now that the LeBron Watch has ended (almost, read later), we turn our attention to the upcoming General Release styles. A couple of days a new LeBron 15 colorway has been added to the Footlocker’s release calendar listed as Black, Bright Crimson and Sail.

For a moment I was super excited because I’ve been waiting for months hoping for a Red based release. Especially since we already saw the Ohio State 15s in full detail. They’re too hot.

Unfortunately the upcoming Bright Crimson make up is predominantly Black with a small number of Red details. I guess our best hope for Red LeBron 15s is the release of the alternate version of the ‘Diamond Turf’ LeBron Watch 15. LeBron James himself has confirmed the upcoming release. We have to be on the lookout for launch information as The King has entered his social media blackout more for the Playoffs.

Preview the new Nike LeBron XV below. It is scheduled to be released on May 3rd.

‘Zero Dark Thirty’ Nike LeBron Soldier XII Has Been Pushed Back

Three days ago, on April 12th, Nike was supposed to launch the Nike LeBron Soldier XII in the initial ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ colorway. If you can’t find them… you’re ain’t the only one. For some reason only the Big Kids’ version is available for purchase.

Turns out the SOLDIER XII has been delayed in both U.S. and Europe markets. Footlocker Europe dropped some info that we should expect them in May. I’m not sure if this only applies to the initial colorway because there’s the second version – ‘Hazel Rush’ – coming out next week. It is still scheduled to drop on April 19th.

Retailers in Asia didn’t get the memo, it seems, and some stores have released the shoe to public. At least we get some detailed pictures including a first look at the SOLDIER XII box, which for the first time gets a brand new design. Check out the close ups below and keep checking back for updates on the actual release date for the Soldier 12.

Nike LeBron Soldier ’25 Straight’ Retro Drops on May 31st

With a unique build, skill set and competitive drive, LeBron James is arguably the most dominant player of all time. The world knows that now, but back when he was facing the Pistons in Game 5 of the 2007 Eastern Conference Finals, LeBron was still opening people’s eyes. Wearing the rugged LeBron Soldier 1 for the contest, he pulled off the basketball equivalent of carrying a brother-in-arms to safety, scoring 29 of the Cavs’ final 30 points, including 25 straight and all 18 of their overtime points. The Herculean effort in the 2OT victory earned him his first NBA Finals appearance and was a revelation of the impossible dominance and will to win that King James continues to display today.

Moments like these inspired Nike to create the “Art of a Champion” collection that cement members of NIKE, Inc.’s extended family among basketball royalty. While not every moment led directly to a title, each is intrinsic to the respective athlete’s journey toward glory.

The Nike Zoom Soldier ’25 Straight’ is scheduled to be released on May 31st in limited numbers. Check out the gallery below, which includes a comparison with both 2007 General Release and Player Exclusive styles.

Nike LeBron Soldier 12 SFG ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ – Release Date

LeBron James is expected to enter his ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ mode cutting off all social media activities come Playoffs time. He is also expected to debut the next iteration of the Nike Soldier series – the SOLDIER XII. We already got a preview of the Camo colorway and now we get the catalog images showing the Blackout version.

The ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ colorway is scheduled to be released on April 12th, 2018 for $130 as fans will get a chance to gear for the Playoffs.

Based on the provided images there are a couple of things worth mentioning. There’s a knitted upper around the ankle area, but that’s not the BattleKnit used on the 15s. The signature straps are still here. The Zoom Air on the heel seems huge.

Release Reminder: Nike LeBron 15 ‘Fruity Pebbles’

One of the most anticipated releases of the Nike LeBron 15 – the Fruity Pebbles – is scheduled for tomorrow morning.

Based on Footlocker’s Launch Locator, there will be plenty to go around, but the demand is high so I wouldn’t count on finding them later on sitting on shelves. The ‘Cereal’ LEBRON XV (official name) will also drop on Nike SNRKS and earlier today Nike Europe added these to the launch list as well. will have them on April 1st.

The LEBRON 15 line has already produced a number of nice looking colorways, but excluding the limited Kith and LeBron Watch drops, makes these much more appealing, I believe. Not to mention that LeBron James has already laced these up a couple of times.

Be sure to set your alarm clocks for tomorrow and check out the detailed photos below.

First Look at Nike LeBron Soldier 12 ‘Hazel Rush’

No. The Nike LeBron Soldier 12 doesn’t have 5 straps, but it almost looks like it, though.

This is the very first look at the upcoming twelfth iteration of the Nike Soldier series. After going laceless with the Soldier 10, Nike keeps the streak and the newest model is still using straps. Technically there are two straps overlapping each other. Seems that Nike addressed the flapping straps problem and added two big Velcro panel on the heel.

The presented ‘Hazel Rush’ colorway is scheduled to be released on April 19th, 2018. It’s possible LeBron James will debut the SOLDIER XII during the Playoffs and switch between these and the 15s.
