LeBron may not have gone to college, but his sneakers seem to end up there every season. The Ohio State great-that-never-was is paying tribute to the Buckeyes with this Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier III PE. And while there was no chance he would have ever ended up at Akron, the Zips get their own PEs too.
The Ohio State PEs are essentially the Team Soldier IIIs with OSU logos, like the “O” on the lower strap. The accent piece separating the sole from the upper has also been changed to black from silver. The Akron PEs’ patent leather toe and side pieces are navy blue, and the entire shoe uses gold accents and contrast stitching. Their logo also appears on the lower strap.
Allegiances aside, how do these Soldier PEs stack up against some of Nike’s other offerings? Head to the comments section and weigh in.
