Is this the shoe we’ll see LeBron James lace up this post season?
We just witnessed Nike unveil the Flip the Switch collection, and the brand made it sound like we should expect to see players wearing those models in the Playoffs. However, we all know LeBron tends to jump ship from his signature line and strap on a pair of Soldiers come Playoff time so this could be the shoe we may see him wear instead.
There is no official confirmation that this is the new Soldier 11, but it looks like an updated version of the Soldier 10, so it isn’t an impossibility. This new LeBron shoe features another laceless design and one-piece upper. Four straps are used rather than three and materials look to be mesh and ballistic nylon.
Its tooling looks like a cross between the Hyperdunk 2016 and the LeBron models that feature the Hex Zoom setup. Will the new Soldier feature Hex Zoom? We’re not sure, but it’s likely. However, we hope that they feature the more traditional Zoom Air in the heel and forefoot. If these could feel like the Soldier 6s then we’d be fully on board.
The colorway is very “Nike Elite” which makes us think we’ll see these on LeBron’s feet this post season.
Feel free to share your thoughts on this new LeBron model from Nike Basketball below and stay tuned for official updates as they come.
