Lebron Soldier III

The Rebel in the LBJ Collection

Lebron James steps up his game come playoff time. And this is what inspired the Lebron Soldier III.

Of all the secondary designs in the Lebron James signature collection, this model is perhaps the most popular of them all. Why not? James’ aggressive style of play on both ends of the floor has left his opponents with much awe. And every time he plays, especially during the playoffs, he brings his A-game.

With all these in mind, the designers of the Lebron Soldier III created a basketball shoe whose sole is closer to the ground, making it extremely responsive. It is also one of the lightest in the long list of designs made by Nike. This was made possible through the light mesh upper, which is incorporated in the design for breathability.

The most notable feature of this shoe is the two synthetic leather straps above the mid-foot top. This provides a lockdown fit, aside from adding a stylish look. As always, Nike has utilized their Zoom Air units for the mid-sole to enhance cushioning while the unconventional solid rubber outsole replete with flex grooves provides outstanding traction and flexibility that can keep up with the feet’s natural motion. As always, an image of a lion is embossed on the back of the tongue, yet another one of Lebron’s trademark.

Just like the previous models from the collection, the Lebron Soldier III symbolizes the player and the man on and off court. James’ toughness, power and passion stand out, and these are what this shoe stands for.

Lebron Soldier 1 – Built For Performance

The partnership between Lebron James and Nike has resulted to a signature sneaker collection that could rival that of Michael Jordan’s Air Jordans. Known for their modernistic design and maximum comfort and protection, the Lebron signature series makes use of cutting edge features that solidify its claim as one of the best basketball shoe collections ever to be created.

Being the perfectionist that he is, Lebron James is committed to improve on every facet of his game. Rightfully so, his signature collection is a reflection of his ever evolving game. The Lebron Soldier 1 is part of his collections.

James is known to be aggressive on both sides of the basketball court. And he needs his sneakers to be as tough as him. These shoes need to be built for performance. But it does not mean it will compromise on comfort. Such an uncomfortable shoe will only put a strain on the foot after long usage

One of the most distinct features of Lebron Soldier 1 is the large support strap. There is one on the upper and the other supports the back of the foot. Both these straps provide a lockdown fit as well as providing a stylish look that stays true to the LBJ trademark design. Despite its lockdown fit, this sneaker has an enhanced cushioning through its Zoom Air Units. Traction and flexibility is achieved through the solid rubber outsole.

Simply put, this signature shoe epitomizes Lebron’s power, resilience and toughness on the court. Its success has paved the way for two more editions under the Soldier Collection.
