The fifth installment in LeBron James' "Soldier" series features innovative technology, a unique lockdown system, and is available in a fresh array of colors. The Nike LeBron Air Max Soldier V has Flywire technology for ultra lightweight support, Nike Zoom unit in the forefoot and a Max Air unit in the heel for targeted comfort, and deep flex grooves in the outsole enabling an enhanced natural range of motion. Nike also constructed this off season/summer basketball sneaker with a signature strap that connects to the midfoot and locks itself to both the lateral and medial sides, giving you lockdown security. The Nike LeBron Air Max Soldier V is currently available in Iguana / Black-White-Max Orange, Cool Grey / White, and Wolf Grey / Metallic Silver. When you're putting in extra time at the gym this summer doing footwork drills and shooting jumpers (and you should be), this is a great sneaker to be lacin' up.

If you have been watching the 2011 NBA Playoffs you have witnessed the dominance that is LeBron James. Whether it's his monster dunks, clutch 3-point field goals, or spectacular lock-down defense, even haters can't deny that LeBron is playing at an extremely high level. And, he's been doing it all in his signature shoes specifically designed for the playoffs, the Nike LeBron 8 PS (Post Season). This technically sound basketball sneaker is lighter than previous Nike LeBron 8 models to ensure that LeBron stays fresh during his championship run, but still offer exceptional support and cushioning. The Nike LeBron 8 PS has a breathable Hyperfuse constructed upper, lightweight cushlon midsole with large-volume 180 Max Air unit in the heel, Zoom technology, and flex grooves on the outsole. Available in several colorways, including White/Black-Sport Red, Varsity Royal/Black-White, and Black/Sport Red-White, they have received a lot of great reviews for their looks and performance. The only question left is, will these be the shoes LeBron is wearing when he picks up his first NBA Championship?

The Puma Clyde X Undefeated Luxe is a contemporary take on the classic Puma Clyde, the signature sneaker for the always stylish Clyde Frasier. The first difference you'll notice on this design from the original Clyde is the removal of the Puma Formstripe, which is how they got the nickname, the "Stripe Off." But, the differences don't stop there. They also feature a leather tongue tag with an embossed Undefeated logo, gold Puma Clyde text on the side of the heel, and a contrasting leather accent piece on the back heel.

Redesigns of classics in the sneaker world have been mocked, criticized, and sometimes, adorned. Yet, it's hard to tell what causes each response. In the case of the Puma Sky High Plus, a redesign of the classic Puma basketball sneaker from the 80s, I think it's safe to say they will be accepted. Available in several fresh tonal colorways, they retain many of the same design elements of their predecessor, the Puma Sky High II, but also some modifications. The Puma Sky High Plus sports an ultra high tongue, large adjustable hook-and-loop strap, and a vulcanized sole. These design changes transform a retro basketball sneaker into a contemporary lifestyle sneaker that's versatile and fashionable. So, what color are you gonna cop?

We have seen the duck boot done many different ways this season. From Nike's take with the Woodside, to a completely different approach with the Gourmet Quadici, it almost seems like every footwear brand has a duck boot-inspired model. Yet, until now, we have not seen anything like the Nike Air Force 1 'Duck Boot'. This weather-ready model transforms an iconic basketball sneaker into a suitable winter selection. The Nike Air Force 1 'Duck Boot' features a premium leather upper, water-resistant duck boot-styled toebox, wool WaterShield collar, and an extremely aggressive outsole pattern that will allow you to tread through harsh road conditions. Plus, they also come with two pairs of waxed laces (black and red). Some of you don't experience the weather that demands a winter boot (Hello Los Angeles!), but for the rest of you the Nike Air Force 1 'Duck Boot' is without a doubt a welcomed model.

Over the years Nike has released their fair share of red or pink Valentine's Day-themed sneakers. So, it's nice so see for 2011 they took a completely fresh approach with the Nike Dunk High 'Amor'. This Nike Dunk model for women features a Sail-colored canvas upper with intricately embroidered, love-inspired illustrations. The illustrations include lovebirds, hearts, roses, Cupids, and the word 'Amor' (Latin for love). Nike completed the Nike Dunk High 'Amor' with a red tongue tag and red insoles, which showcase lovebirds on the right, and 'Amor' on the left. The attention to detail and craftsmanship will surely impress. They look so nice that I suggest skipping the flowers this year, and picking up a pair these for the sneaker-loving sweetheart in your life.

There's often a debate among sneakerheads about which Air Jordan is the best. Is it the Air Jordan 1 for starting it all? The Air Jordan IV for their classic silhouette? The Air Jordan XI for their versatile patent appeal? Or maybe it's the Air Jordan III for so many reasons? No matter which Air Jordan tops your list, the Air Jordan III deserves a mountain of respect.
The Air Jordan III was the first Air Jordan designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield, who went on to design many iconic Air Jordan sneakers, among other influential Nike models. The Air Jordan III was also the first to showcase a Visible Air Sole unit. And, the first time the world got a glimpse of arguably the most recognizable icon in sports, the 'Jumpman' logo, it was on the Air Jordan III. The 2011 version of the "White/Cement Grey" colorway is almost identical to the original released in 1988, but to the dismay of many, the 'Nike' on the heel has been replaced by the aforementioned 'Jumpman' logo. Yet, it's still easy to see why this is one of the most anticipated releases of 2011. Look for them on Sneakerhead.com soon.
