With the FIBA Championship games tipping off in Turkey in the next couple of weeks, we’ve started to see more USA Basketball-themed sneakers popping up. Many big name athletes the team was hoping to turn out for spring training have reported that they’ll most likely be taking the Summer off. LeBron James and his fellow Miami Heat teammates D. Wade and Chris Bosh are a few of the bunch who expressed taking up other things this Summer. That’s not stopping Nike though from banking off LeBron’s signature shoes and the hope that he may change his mind.
We’ve already seen an LeBron VII Low sporting the signature red, white and blue color scheme and now we’ve spotted patriotic Zoom Solider IV which James could decide to wear if he chooses to play. For the Zoom Solider IV “USA Basketball” Nike designed the shoes using a White base which features pinpoint graphics of stars, stripes and other various designs used on an outer layer that wraps around a ballistic mesh-like fabric.The midsole with the included Max Air unit provides a hit of Obsidian, matching the flywire strap and the trim throughout the upper. Minimal accents of Sport Red are seen within the Max Air unit, on the heel spine which has “Witness” printed down it in black and on the Swoosh outline. Our nation’s color’s don’t stand on on this one but the stars and stripes should help cover the overall theme.
The shoes are available now at LTD and should be arriving stateside soon.
