LeBron James’ Nike Soldier footwear line has always been centered around the playoffs and the culmination of an entire year’s work for one singular goal – winning a championship. While The King is unable to take home the Larry O’Brien Trophy every season, he is able to create playoff excellence on a consistent basis, and more often than not, it’s in a pair of Soldiers. One of James’ most memorable moments came in the inaugural Soldier sneaker, when he recorded 29 of his teams final 30 points in Game 5 of the 2007 Eastern Conference Finals against the Pistons – helping secure his first ever NBA Finals appearance.

Now, eleven years later, Nike is honoring that sneaker and that historic moment with a Soldier 12 that utilizes the exact same color scheme. Primarily dressed in white, it adds navy to its dual-strap enclosure system and the heel while a regal gold hue provides a luxurious touch on the “LJ23” logo and speckling on the sole. Currently, no release date has been made public, but the Soldier 1 in this exact same colorway is slated to make its return as part of the illustrious “Art Of A Champion” collection on May 31st, so a release around that time is certainly possible. Enjoy an official set of images below and stay tuned for details as they become available.
