We like to discuss samples from time to time here on Sneaker News, and this pair lends itself to alot of debate. What looks to be a sample of the Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier IV (4) is a shoe that is all at once very ‘LeBron’ and totally unique. Its ankle collar is reminiscent of the Nike Zoom LeBron II, and the stacked midsole reminds us of last year’s stitched Six. Where it starts to get a little crazy is the triangle that extends upward from the black section of midsole.
It’s a black to red gradient, framed in diagonal lines a la select Air Jordan 2009 side panels. Given that this techinque is pretty technologically demanding, plus the diagonal sweeping lines that makeup the rest of the upper, we’re guessing there was/is going to be some Flywire in there somewhere. Whether that ever actually happens is still up to Jason Petrie and the guys at Nike Basketball, but you know Sneaker News will keep you posted. via FC.T
