The line of LeBron shoes is arguably one of the most popular signature lines running right now. Each season Nike Basketball seems to find a way to keep King James’ kick game at the forefront of both function and form with creative colorways and technology. The latest to release is the fifth version of the Zoom Soldier.

This military-like colorway of the Nike Zoom Soldier V is sure to carry on the tradition of popularity and performance. The uppers use a combination of leather and Flywire technolgy. While the combination of Max Air heel cushioning, Zoom Air forefoot cushioning, and a phylon midsole, is arguably one of the best combinations available. Traction is handled by a herringbone pattern on the outsole, which, thanks to a solid rubber makeup, is durable as well. The Nike Zoom Soldier V weighs in at just 14.6 ounces, nearly half an ounce lighter than the previous version.
