Even though the NBA season is barely a few weeks past, Nike is ready to get you ready for the summer and next season with new designs of Nike basketball shoes. Today we get our first look of a couple of upcoming styles with the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 and the Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier V. The Soldier V continues on with the line of post-season/off-season LeBron shoes, while the Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 we got our first look at last week.

Nike gives each of these two basketball shoes a unique militaristic look with an “Iguana” colorway. The colorway may be familiar, as it has been seen in on a number of casual styles in the last couple years. Accenting the primarily Iguana colored upper of each sneaker is Max Orange, and a little bit of black and white. The Hyperfuse 2011 uses Nike’s Fuse technology with Zoom Air cushioning, while the Zoom Soldier V utilizes Flywire throughout the upper, a combination of Max Air and Zoom Air cushioning, and a unique ankle strap for added lockdown.
