The LeBron Soldier line has made moderate changes throughout the past few models but the upcoming 8th iteration looks to contain a different build. The images of two different sample Soldier 8s look to have a strap zipper, presumably to allow the sneaker to be easier to put on. The traction looks to replace the traditional herringbone for hexagon and diamond patterns. The model itself looks similar to the Soldier 7, with some hints of the LeBron 11 Elite as well.
Stay tuned to WearTesters.com for further details and a performance review when they release. Let us know in the comments what benefits you think the zipper (and other details of the shoe) will provide.
