words // Nick DePaula:

Throughout his seven appearances in the NBA Finals over the years, as expected, LeBron James has worn several special edition Nike sneakers for the game’s grandest stage.

For his initial Finals debut in 2007, LeBron debuted two lasered editions of the very first Zoom Soldier model against the San Antonio Spurs. In later years, Nike Basketball’s strategy would shift, as we’d see “PS” versions of James’ signature model for the postseason. Eventually, in 2012 Nike launched upgraded Elite models for the playoff stretch, with added carbon fiber support molding, enhanced sockliners and extra embellishments.

For his most recent Finals — an iconic championship win for The Land — James wore the new Zoom Soldier 10, a fully laceless, three-strap silhouette. In clean white and black colorways, each pair was accented by gold logo hits.

Check out LeBron James over the years in each of his Finals sneakers in our latest edition of Kicks On Court Classic, and let us know your favorites in the comments section below.
