2007 - Nike Zoom Soldier I

Notable player: LeBron James 

After LeBron's team in Beaverton figured out the postseason was going to be a yearly occurrence, barring he got malaria or a broken leg, Nike decided to starting working up a plan for a series of shoes built with the specifications of James' quest to conquer the next level of competition, the playoffs. The Zoom Soldier was born and the first pair still might hold up as his best before he switched to the PS/Elite system in 2010.
