With LeBron James cementing his legacy over the last few years — winning two championships, two Finals MVPs, and two gold medals — it’s taken his signature sneaker line from famed to legendary. Now, for the first time the Zoom Generation debuted all those years ago, questions about LeBron’s place in shoe history are sinking in. Can he catch Jordan? How much better can they get? What new tech can they introduce next?
But the funny part? During James’ first NBA Finals run in 2007, he rocked the Zoom Soldier. The shoe’s played a major part in his legacy ever since and last year when the LeBron 11 was giving him trouble, the world’s best player consistently turned to the Soldier 7.
Today, the Soldier 8 releasing in an all-black and silver colorway that’ll be perfect for those hot summer pickup runs. Get yours today at Champs Sports.
