The Zoom LeBron VI, the latest in the signature series, designed specifically for the performance needs of LeBron James but transcends beyond the court.

Basketball players need footwear that is not only cushioned but also durable???it needs to last the length of the season. Players such as LeBron need footwear that is both comfortable and flexible, a shoe that lets them stay in control. The Zoom LeBron VI not only has a full-length Nike Zoom unit in the midsole for the ultimate responsive ride, but also has Nike Zoom double-stacked in the heel. The cushioning system helps the forefoot for transition when jumping. Deep sipes in the shoe allow for natural motion, which means the shoe works with the athlete???s movement, rather than against it.

The ???Nike We the People Graphic??? draws inspiration from a number of cultural elements and design influences to create a bold aesthetic specific to the USA. The graphic, created by Design Director Mark Smith, leverages Nike???s Aerographics technology. With Aerographics, Nike designers are able to incorporate mesh directly into a garment without any extra materials or added weight. Both the ???Nike We the People Graphic??? and Aerographics technology are highlighted in the 2008 USA Basketball, Track and Field, Softball and BMX team uniforms.

When creating the graphic, Nike designers were drawn to tattoos as the first point of inspiration, specifically looking at how the graphic design could align directly to the athlete???s body. The multi-faceted graphic tells the story of many cultures coming together under the common theme of victory. Just like a tattoo on the body, the pattern of the graphic is darker than the base color surrounding it.

Specific elements of the design include:
– The Statue of Liberty, represented by the torch
– Stars and stripes representing the 50 American states
– The date of the signing of the Declaration of Independence
– Decorative elements from our nations??? currency
– The olive branch and arrows from the talons of the American eagle in the Presidential seal
– Celtic, African and Native American symbols and influences
– A bleeding heart representing Hispanic culture
