Ahead of LeBron James’ return to Cleveland, the man has been on a bit of a world tour. He was down in Brazil for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and now he’s out in China spreading his love for the game of basketball with the Nike Rise 2014 Tour. Shown here are some shots from a recent stop, one which had the man wearing an unreleased pair of sneakers that appear to be the Nike LeBron 11 Low “Lava”. Check in after the break for more shots, included some of that “Champs Pack” LeBron 11 Low that looks to be releasing, and stay tuned to see if any special sneakers come out of the tour.

Nike KD 6 Wear-test Sample

July 22nd, 2014 by | No comments

nike kd 6 wear test sample Nike KD 6 Wear test Sample

A blackout pair of the KD 6 never happened, so this wear-test prototype might actually be the closest you can get to that combo short of a NIKEiD creation. The sneaker shows off what the Nike KD 6 design was looking like in its early stages. You’ll notice that the kit on bottom is mostly the same, while the upper has an interesting bit of exposed Flywire and a triangular pattern running along the back end. It’s possible that those elements were never meant to be incorporated in the shoe anyway – the owner mentions that the sample may have been made just to test out the KD 6 sole. See the rare pair after the break and then bid on this wear-test pair of Kevin Durant shoes from lockerroomkicks on eBay.

The Kobe 9 EM is getting busy once again. Not only did we recently see a new NIKEiD option unveiled for the sneaker, but we also got a first peek at this new colorway. The approach is pretty muted here – they utilize just black and metallic silver, which show up across the upper in some faded shades and vague geometric patterns. They’ll be headed to retail sooner or later, so you shouldn’t have to fret too much about super limited status. Browse photos for this Nike Kobe 9 EM creation below and check back with us for a solid release date.

The Kobe 9 “Peach Jam” isn’t the only special pair of sneakers coinciding with the culmination of the Nike EYB league. Offered up to players that made it all the way to Sunday’s championship game were these KD 7s, LeBron 11s, Kobe 9 Elite Lows, and Hyperdunk 2014s that all seem to originate from NIKEiD. That’s right, you could create the pairs for yourself, but they just wouldn’t be quite as special as these that the young athletes in question have been blessed with. See the “Peach Jam” sneakers with us after the break and tell us in the comments which is your favorite.

The Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low “Beethoven” that was shown off in that initial Nike INC post will differ a little bit from the final retail version. The pair on display here looks to be the one that will show up in stores on 8/16, with the main difference being that the side Swooshes here are white rather than black. This shouldn’t catch you entirely by surprise – the last time we saw the shoes they had the same color setup for the branding. Check out this new pair of Kobe 9 Elite Lows after the break and tell us in the comments if you’re purchasing.

Nike LeBron 11 “SE Pack” – Euro Release Date

July 21st, 2014 by | 14 comments

It looks like the so-called Nike LeBron 11 “Champs Pack” might be getting a release after all. Both the Nike LeBron 11 Elite and the Nike LeBron 11 Low from the group have popped up on Foot Locker Europe’s release dates page and the two SE entries are listed separately, so it appears for now that the shoes will drop individually. The release date of August 9th is still a little bit out, so it’s not impossible that they start to show up on stateside calendars as well. Get a glimpse at the two Nike LeBron 11 “SE Pack” pairs below and tell us in the comments if you’re trying to purchase either.
