While Nike has always dropped White/Black/Red colorways of LeBron’s sneakers dating back to the first Nike Air Zoom Generation, they really never matched LeBron’s Cavaliers uniform, now that he is playing for the Heat, they do. The first (unintentional) Heat colored Nike LeBron sneaker to hit retail is the White/Black/Red/Gold Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier IV. A perfect match for LeBron’s new Heat kit, the White/Black/Red/Gold Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier IV features a White leather, Black canvas, and Black leather upper with Red and Gold accents. The upper sits on a White/Black midsole with a Red Visible Air Unit. There are several LeBron hits on the sneaker including his lion logo, his old LBJ23 logo, and a “WITNESS” hit going down the heel. You can see more pics of this soon to be released sneaker after the jump.

A few months ago we all lost an avid collector and fan of the Air Force 1, Reggie Halloway. Reggie’s affinity for the Air Force 1 and his passion for the Brand ran deep, and as news spread of his passing, bloggers, friends, forum members and those in the sneaker community got together to honor Reggie’s life and celebrate his love for the Air Force 1. A website was established, www.reggieaf1.com, where people donated funds toward creating a Bespoke Air Force 1 in Reggie’s memory. The end result is the shoe pictured in this post. Inspiration was drawn from Reggie’s love of the Houston Rocket’s and their logo from the mid 90′s. Check out some more pics after the jump of the shoe created in Reggie’s name.
