What do you think of the new Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 9?

uk-lebron

Nike released two special editions of its LeBron Soldier 9 signature shoe, one for Ohio State and one for your University of Kentucky Wildcats. The shoe’s design was first leaked a couple of months ago, but it did not hit shelves until this week.

I started to pre-order the shoe over the weekend, but backed out when I realized I have no idea what I’d do with them. I wouldn’t wear them, so, maybe sit on a shelf by my desk? Ask Jon Hood to sign them next time I see him at the driving range in Madisonville? Hang them over a telephone wire in front of my house?

What do you think?

Take a closer look and then buy them at Nike.com.

    Those must be comfortable shoes. I bet you could walk all day in shoes like that and not feel a thing. I wish I had shoes like that.

      I bet if I think about it real hard I could remember my first pair of shoes. Mama said they would take me anywhere. She said they were my magic shoes.

    Those are sick. Buuut, you’re right that there’s no practical place to wear them unless you’re on the bball court. Then you’re just a wanna be with a bad jumper. For our players, those are pretty sweet though. Especially since they all currently wear whatever shoes/colors they want. This lack of shoe unity is probably why we lost to Tennessee.

      HAHAHA! What is funny is the other night, I really noticed the lack of shoe unity during the game and wished they were more uniform. I’m very OCD.

    There has been some rumors that a black helmet could be a new alternate choice.

    i think the last time i bought a pair of high tops was for basketball during my senior year of high school. but i really like these. i don’t know if that is good or bad for Nike, because i guarantee i am not the demographic they are going for.

      As long as someone is buying them, I don’t think Nike cares.

    They aight. Not big on the gradient on the midsole. The hashtag thing on the strap seems like it’s trying a little hard. Not my favorite UK PEs ever but they’re cool.

    Daaaaaamn….. $140 for those?!! No wonder Nike grossed $340 million last year just from Lebron’s shows alone. $340 Million! Of course thats nothing compared to the $2.25 Billion made from Jordan’s. This is in one year people.
