LeBron's trotting out another pair of newly designed Nike shoes for the playoffs. Don't know much about kicks, but Rich "MaZe" Lopez from Sporting News' First Cuts blog does, so I'll let him take it away:
For the third straight year, Nike and LeBron have come together to create a Nike/LeBron sneaker designed specifically for LeBron's playoff campaign. After wearing the bulky and slightly heavy Nike Zoom LeBron VI through the year, LeBron has changed into the Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier III, a sleek, lightweight, yet protective sneaker tuned for playoff domination.
The Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier III, designed by Nike designer Ken Link, features a mesh upper for lightweight breathability, two straps across the body for lockdown and fit, and Nike Zoom Air units in the heel and forefoot for a smooth lightweight ride. The Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier III is billed as the lightest sneaker designed for LeBron to date, weighing in at 13.7 oz.
Hey, whatever helps, right.
