The Nike Soldier line continues its praised lockdown with a dual strap system introduced for the Soldier IX. The straps cover both the ankle and the mid-foot area, while Flywire wraparound located near the toebox provides additional stability. This innovative configuration provides 360 degrees of lockdown. The new Nike LeBron Soldier 9 features superior lockdown-you can wear them without laces! This is due to the multiple straps and the Flywire on the toe. Zoom Air is utilized in the heel and forefoot for a responsive ride. The upper is constructed of a Hyperfuse for durability that allows for breathability in the open mesh areas.
