Throughout his nine 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 lighter weight “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.

During the 2016 Finals — an iconic championship win for The Land — James wore the Zoom Soldier 10, a fully laceless, three-strap silhouette. In clean white and black colorways, each pair was accented by gold logo hits. Last season, he laced up the LeBron 14 and the four-strapped Zoom Soldier 11 against the Golden State Warriors. For their fourth straight matchup, you can expect to see James in several Finals editions of the LeBron 15, and maybe even the Soldier 12.
