HOLY ZOOM. Finally, Chinese sneaker site fastpass has sawed the LeBron Soldier 10 in half (that has got to be so much fun). Now we can all take a look at the LeBron Soldier 10 deconstructed. If you haven’t seen our full scoop on the LeBron Soldier 10, be sure to read it here.
The folks at fastpass made sure to compare the deconstructed setups of the Soldier 9 and Soldier 10. According to Nightwing2303’s performance review, the LeBron Soldier 9 had excellent cushion (Zoom units in the forefoot and heel). However, Duke4005 said that the best implementation of Zoom ever was in the Jordan Super.Fly 3. The forefoot Zoom unit in the SF3 was 11.64 millimeters thick. The forefoot unit in the Jordan XXX was 11.08 millimeters. The heel unit in the Soldier 9 was 12.79. And yet, the upcoming LeBron Soldier 10 features a heel Zoom unit that is a massive 14.25 millimeters thick — that’s a little over 11% thicker than the 9’s Zoom unit.
The forefoot Zoom unit in the Soldier 10 is nothing to write home about; it’s 8.73 millimeters thick, just slightly thicker than the eh forefoot unit in the Super.Fly 4 PO. We’ll let you know how it fares on the hardwood come performance review time. The forefoot units in the 9 and 10 are almost identical.
Of course, fastpass had to compare the entire tooling setups of the Soldier 9 and Soldier 10. The Soldier 9 featured a small rectangular TPU shank but the Soldier 10 almost doubles the TPU shank’s size and it’s U shaped. The new shank weighs 7.2 grams and is 2.43 millimeters thick.
