Nike Zoom Vick II

Year: 2004

The Zoom Vick II had a little LeBron VI DNA in there (although, given the year of release, we guess it was the other way around) — it looked a little more boot-like than the swoopy first model — but the split black/white upper looked good, as did the tonal black-on-black Swoosh (predating Vac Tech by a bunch of years). Caged Zoom kept things cushiony, and that Achilles pad was just dope.
