lebron 5 11 Days of Nike LeBron: The Zoom LeBron V

Day 5 of Sneaker News’ 11 Days of Nike LeBron series is here, which means it’s time to take a look at the Nike Zoom LeBron V that released six years back. The chunky height reached by the likes of the Nike Zoom LeBron IV was dialed back quite a bit-weight was shaved off, the silhouette in total was a bit slimmer, and the the Foamposite sections were gone. The shoe was littered with personal details pointing to the journey of James from the strap across the upper alluding to the militate he utilized for childhood basketball games to the Akron details slid underneath the sneaker. But as much as the shoes pointed to his past, they also referenced his present through the regal gold sections and crown logos.

11 Days of Nike LeBron: The Zoom LeBron IV

nike lebron 4 history 11 Days of Nike LeBron: The Zoom LeBron IV

Our 11 Days of Nike LeBron series is back, this time touching on one of the most visually striking sneakers in James’ long history of Swoosh shoes. That would be the Nike Zoom LeBron IV that first released in the Fall of 2006. The design was bold and bulky, weighing in at a whopping 21 ounces – easily taking the title as the heaviest LeBron shoe in history. As referenced by the official name of the shoes, there was indeed full-length Zoom Air on the cushioning tip within the no-midsole construction and instead utilized a Foamposite shell that implemented a flex pattern similar to the Nike Free. The wavy upper proved that the Nike Basketball team was more than willing to switch up the shape of his shoes on a yearly basis rather than try to establish a concrete “LeBron look”, but it was clear the boot-styling was a theme that the team honed in on once again. The Nike Zoom LeBron IV was successful both in doing that and in helping inject a little bit more off-court appeal into his lineup – but is it the best LeBron shoe in history?

11 Days of Nike LeBron: The Zoom LeBron III

We’re taking a daily look a LeBron James’ lineup of Nike shoes, an 11 day count-up to 11/11 that will serve as a reminder of the progression of his signature line. 2006 saw the debut of the Nike Zoom LeBron III, a shoe that solidified LeBron’s line as the tougher, bulkier answer to the Nike Kobe line that was beginning to develop at around the same time. The sneaker didn’t feature quite the drastic jump in design that the Nike Zoom Generation to Nike Zoom LeBron II did-instead opting to stick with the support oriented model that could best outfit an increasingly powerful LeBron James. The Pebax shell system was back, again clutching the Zoom Air system along the bottom. So was the strap-only this time it showed up in the form of multiple smaller straps gripping the upper. Inside was a “foot bucket” configuration that prevent the food from moving around any more than necessary. Hit the click to get more information on LeBron’s third silhouette and stay tuned for our next 11 Days of Nike LeBron feature.

11 Days of Nike LeBron: The Zoom LeBron II

Continuing our 11 Days of Nike LeBron series, we’re today examining the second shoe in King James’ history of on-court silhouettes. The Nike Zoom LeBron II showed a bit more commitment to the young recruit even on its box tag-this being the first shoe to actually have “LeBron” in its name. The sneaker in some ways reflected LeBron’s growing up in the league, as the Nike Zoom LeBron II was all of a sudden a much bulkier shoe than the previous iteration-gaining three ounces in total weight and this time featuring a strapped-up design. The extra heft coincided with a bigger, better Bron, one who was becoming more and more comfortable in league.
