For some reason, Nike hasn’t gone public yet about the LeBron Soldier 10…even though it’s on the feet of “King James,” perhaps the most famous athlete on Earth (especially after last night). Bless these Chinese sneaker sites because now we don’t have to wait for Nike — we’ve got the full scoop on the LeBron Soldier 10 EP.
Seen below in a US men’s size 9, each shoe weighs about 394 grams (13.9 ounces). This colorway, according to the label, is Black/Black-Cosmic Purple-Hyper Jade. The box is of the usual fair, with triangular geometric motifs, and reminiscent of past LBJ kicks. Those geometric motifs are echoed on both the tongue and heel pull tabs in orange. Interestingly, the upper looks like it’s all one piece, and the tall ankle collar features some plush looking padding. Beneath the foremost strap there is a teal ’23’ for James’ jersey number and inside the tongue there is a prominent ‘X’ for ten and a small tab that reads “SOLDIER_TEN.” The inner tab on the left shoe reads “LRJ_SX_16/17.” For those wondering about the LRJ: LeBron Raymone James.
On this LeBron Soldier 10 colorway the outsole is translucent and the traction pattern is comprised of varying sized squares. At the heel and forefoot, there are small windows that give a glimpse of all dat Zoom. The unit in the heel looks massive. The insoles are done in teal and feature five logos each. Stay tuned for the LeBron Soldier 10 deconstruction!
What I find most interesting about this photoset is the height comparison to the Soldier 9. While the 10 certainly looks like an evolution of the 9, the 9 is downright puny in terms of height compared to it’s bigger brother.
So now that you’ve gotten the scoop on the Nike LeBron Soldier 10 EP, are you hopeful? We still have no official word on price but it’ll be very interesting to see where the Swoosh positions this latest LBJ takedown model. As always, have your thoughts heard in the comments below.
