Kicks: Nike Zoom Soldier VI

LeBron’s New 2012 Team Shoe.

Via CounterKicks:

The Nike “Soldier” line was originally installed as a lower priced, LeBron James-team focused shoe, but it’s always been more personal than that. Up to the initiation of the LeBron VII P.S. two years ago, Bron has used the platform of the playoffs to promote that year’s Solider shoe. With signature level product line segmentations covering both regular and post season now, we likely won’t see LeBron wearing the newest Zoom Soldier VI on NBA hardwood in this Lockout-shortened season. But will it make the trek to London to become part of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games?

Here’s a first look at five Fall 2012 colorways in the Nike Zoom Soldier VI:

- Black/White/Red-Metallic Silver
– Bamboo/Sandtrap-Bright Crimson
– White/Black-Game Royal
– White/University Red
– Wolf Grey/Cool Grey-Black

The Zoom Soldier VI takes some design cues from the flagship LeBron 9, most prominently in the shape and design of the outsole and an extension of the Hyperfuse composite construction into the team-slanted line.

Two giant sized logos leave no room for interpretation on whos team exactly you’re playing for, with LeBron’s new-this-season, L-Crown-J personal logo wrapping the midfoot support strap and wreathing the lateral forefoot.

If you’re thinking typical “team” pricing on this shoe though, think again. The Zoom Soldier VI follows the elevated price points of its bigger bro LeBron 9 and the rest of Nike Basketball‘s product offerings into next year with a raised $120 sticker.

    Cool! It’s a little old school. I say lose the strap, but they’re Lebrons, theyre gonna have a strap. 8/10.

  • Heals

    Lebron don’t be “sampling” huaraches, and you too nike just re-release the classics every year and nobody would complain…

    WOW I can’t believe you guys. This is a good look too me. Classic Bron look with a touch of Hyperfuse. You just gotta know how too coordinate this sneaker. And the trick is, the Nike crew socks would set these off on the hardwood (TRUE BALLERS KNOW THE IMPORTANCE OF THE SOCKS!!!) Big shout out too Bron for these.

    I like em, nice design. Thick zoom sole, I don’t know what to think about the strap. I’ll have to try em on. As of now I’d get em.
