Original Posting (06/17/2020): The fourteenth installment of LeBron James’ signature team line will be coming soon as we now have a detailed look at the upcoming Nike LeBron Soldier 14.

The LeBron Soldier 14 sports an entirely new silhouette and aesthetic in comparison to its recent predecessor models that featured solely straps as their lacing systems. The Soldier 14 ditches straps and sports what appears to be a ballistic nylon one piece upper, paired with foam backed mesh at the midfoot and neoprene at the tongue. In addition to the upper material, the build is completed by various fuse overlays and a lacing enclosure that ditches any form of straps featured on previous LeBron soldier models. The technology featured in the tooling remains completely unknown, but from an initial glimpse, it’s likely Phylon will remain as the shoe’s carrier foam midsole, and potential Zoom Air bags may be encased within the midsole at the heel and forefoot.

Let us know what you think of the Nike LeBron Soldier 14 in the comments below. Stay tuned for further updates as we learn more about the upcoming release in the near future.

UPDATE (06/27/2020): New detailed photos have emerged of the upcoming Nike LeBron Soldier 14, which showcases the shoe’s system. The lacing enclosure appears to be very conventional, but the added features of the neoprene shroud covering the majority of the laces and the lace lock gives the shoe a unique aesthetic and function for the lacing.

We also now have a detailed look at the heel, which showcases the foam being heavily caged by the rubber outsole. In addition, the outsole also appears to feature a similar “webbed” pattern to the LeBron 17 at the forefoot, while the heel utilizes a tried-and-true herringbone pattern. Stay tuned for further updates as we learn more about the upcoming LeBron Soldier 14.
