New pics of the upcoming Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 2 recently hit the Net. Similar to the change from the Nike Zoom LeBron IV to the Zoom LeBron V, the Zoom LeBron Soldier deviates a bit from Nike’s past Soldier offerings. Beginning with the Nike Zoom LeBron 20.5.5, the sneaker that spawned the Soldier line, LeBron’s play-off sneakers have traditionally featured an ultra supportive strapped upper, the Soldier 2 though, does not carry on this tradition. More of a Zoom LeBron V lite, the Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier features a very minimalistic upper and a low profile sole/midsole. The outsole of the Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 2 features Nike and LeBron’s new “milk crate” technology, a outsole traction pattern inspired by LeBron’s days of playing Ball with a milk crate hoop.
The Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 2 is scheduled to drop in 2008.
