Never one to stay a particular footwear course for too long, LeBron James will go with an entirely new shoe for the 2010 NBA Playoffs. Bron used to rock Nike Zoom LeBron Soldiers (starting the year after the 20.5.5 drop during his first playoff run), and even though we saw several candidates for the ZLSIV, *and* it’s still dropping at retail, it looks like LeBron won’t rock the Soldiers this postseason.
Instead, here’s the aptly named Nike LeBron VII P.S. (PostSeason). It looks pretty similar to the Air Max LeBron VII, save it’s non-Max Air sole, a bigger tongue, and a Zoom LeBron VI-like heel pull. Some have said it looks like the Air Jordan XI thanks to its patent leather mudguard, and when you see the carbon fiber arch support, this likely won’t change. But this is no retro, and you can expect them to hit Nike Basketball retailers like Foot Locker just before the march to the Finals begins, on April 17th, 2010.
