The Slick Black Lebron 7 Phantom
Since its release in 2009, Lebron James’ latest signature shoes, the Zoom Lebron 7 has been a prized possession for any baller who likes the combination of comfort and protection in a “light-weight” sneaker.
Staying true to the technology used in the other sneakers in the Nike collection, yet having a new concept, the Zoom Lebron 7 stays true to the previous LBJ series. Just looking slick at the trademark LB23 logo and you know that this shoe is built for the King himself. And just when you thought you knew all the colorways available for this signature sneaker, Nike has come up with a new color way that is a surefire hit among Lebron James fans – the Lebron 7 Phantom, an all black ensemble with gold accents.
Some would probably wonder, why call it Phantom? This is perhaps in reference to Lebron James’ all black Rolls-Royce. It looks like a typical Zoom Lebron 7. The only distinction is that the Lebron 7 Phantom sports a gold-accented LB23 symbol and gold accentuation on the shoelace area. Exhibiting form and function, this sneaker model is perhaps the best “all black colorway” shoe available today. It remains to be seen if the current MVP will ever use it in an actual game with his Cleveland Cavaliers wine and gold jersey (with their retros usually in blue and orange). With its classic design, it’s not surprising to see James casually wearing it outside the court. The suede trimmings surrounding the flywire panel give the shoe varying textures in its all-black theme.
