Just like the Nike Kyrie 3 we previewed earlier today, it looks like a LeBron James sneaker is releasing in a Finals colorway—despite the Cavs not winning the title this year. Cleveland and LeBron fans can think of it as a consolation prize if they want, but either way, the Nike LeBron Soldier 11 is dropping soon in a “Finals” colorway of black suede and mesh with metallic gold accents and a gold-flecked clear outsole. Did Nike produce these in case the Cavs and LeBron won the 2017 Championship and just decide to release them anyway? We’re not sure what the case is, but they look great either way.
Following a look at the Nike Kyrie 3 in White/Gold, we now share the Nike LeBron Soldier 11 in Black/Gold. Although the Cavs lost during the 2017 NBA Finals, Nike Basketball appears to be releasing a pair of Finals-inspired colorways of both Kyrie’s and LeBron’s signature shoe.
This Nike LeBron Soldier 11 comes dressed in a Black and Metallic Gold color scheme. Featuring a full Black-based upper constructed in a mix of suede and mesh. Giving the shoe its Finals motif are the Metallic Gold accents on the Swoosh logos and specks displayed on the icy outsoles.
