This week Nike and LeBron James kicked off the official unveiling of their upcoming Nike Zoom LeBron V at the Nike LeBron V Media Summit in Las Vegas. In contrast to last year’s larger and heavier ZLIV, the ZLV is a lightweight yet durable and protective combination of LeBron’s favorite two sneakers from the Zoom LeBron line, the Zoom LeBron III and the 20.5.5. In addition to a number of technological aspects that are built into the sneaker to provide maximum comfort, traction, protection, etc., the ZLV features a number of detailed aesthetic aspects including the LeBron Lion on the tongue, embroidered positive words under the midfoot strap, a map of Akron, Ohio behind the tongue and on the sole, a “V” on the outer heel, a Gold “LBJ23″ at the end of the midfoot strap, and much more.
To start our coverage of the Nike LeBron V Media Summit we take a close look at the upcoming Foot Locker Exclusive Nike Zoom LeBron V. The “FTL” ZLV features a White upper with Varsity Crimson accents and a Cream, almost Gum like, outsole. The “FTL” Nike Zoom LeBron V is scheduled to drop later this year at Foot Locker.
