Part of the pack is the Zoom LeBron Soldier 1 James wore when he scored 25 straight points in Game 5 of the 2007 Eastern Conference Finals against the Pistons. The performance was part of James’ first-ever run to the Finals. This is the first time this shoe has been retroed.
The shoe features the L23 logo that is no longer part of James’ shoe design and three colors for the navy blue uniform James wore in that game. It releases on May 31.
