Though Nike has released the historically highly coveted “SVSM” colorway of the Nike Zoom LeBron V and is set to release the “Dunkman” colorway as well, unlike the the Nike Zoom LeBron IV’s “Fruity Pebbles” colorway, Nike has played it relatively safe with Nike Zoom LeBron V. Until now that is.
New pics of the “Yankees” Nike Zoom LeBron V recently hit the Net. Performance basketball sneakers often take inspiration from a number of things, but rarely is a Performance Basketball sneaker inspired by Baseball. The “Yankees” Nike Zoom LeBron V is inspired by the New York Yankees, the most storied franchise in Sports history. The “Yankees” Nike Zoom LeBron V features a Navy Wool upper with White pinstripes, a White/Navy Patent toe, and a White Patent heel. The tongue on the the “Yankees” V features a Baseball diamond with Jame’s number 23 on it and the saying under the strap reads “Fresh for ’08. Suckers!”.
As of the time of this post, a release date for the “Yankees” Nike Zoom LeBron V has not been confirmed. Should one become available, it will be posted.
