LeBron James may not be in Rio de Janerio with Team USA, but that Nike from prepping his LeBron Soldier 10 for the medal stand.
The Nike LeBron Soldier 10 “Gold Swoosh”, along with the Kyrie 2 “Gold Swoosh” and KD 9 “Gold Swoosh”, pays homage to the Americans with their expected gold medal in mind. All three sneakers feature gold Nike swooshes and different variations of red, white and blue.
In LeBron’s case, the shoe is mostly white - although the straps are a darker white than the shoe’s body - with gold dots and specks across the shoe. There is also ‘USA’ written in gold on back sides of both shoes. While there is no red, there is a lighter, clearer blue on the bottom.
The sneaker will retail for $140 and drops on Aug. 22 a day after the gold medal game in Rio. Check out a few photos of the shoe below:
