While the Nike LeBron 12 is still a ways out, LeBron’s Nike line is already prepared to shift to the next shoe in terms of the takedown side of things. The Nike Zoom Soldier VIII is actually making its debut this weekend in that photo blue colorway that we’ve previewed here on Sneaker News. Giving you an even better idea of what to expect is this gathering of photos, which zooms in on the various details that make up this latest pair of LeBrons. Stay with us after the break to see the breakdown and tell us in the comments if you’re liking the Nike LeBron Soldier 8
The strap looks like cheap plastic, the upper doesn't look as good, and the back of the outsole looks odd. Maybe for performance they'll be better (upper seems more breathable, bendable, etc). The price definitely shouldn't be raised though, seeing as how cheap these seem compared to the build of the soldier 7.
