The Nike LeBron Zoom Soldier “25 Straight” releases this week
All hail the King.
The rollout of Nike’s “Art Of A Champion” AKA “Think 16” collection continues to deliver throughout the NBA Playoffs, with LeBron’s timely “25 Straight” Zoom Soldier to release on Thursday, May 31st — the same day he takes on his eighth NBA Finals Campaign.
But while he won’t get to 25 straight appearances at the big dance, the Zoom Soldier celebrates his thrilling 25 points streak (and 48 in total) in the double-OT performance against the Detroit Pistons in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals a mere 11 years ago. The young King dominated to say the least, earning him his first trip to the NBA Finals. Hit the play button below and you can catch the King’s entire highlight reel from the game.
Sneakerheads will remember that the shoes worn during the game were these Zoom Soldiers, featuring a white leather upper, with the Soldier’s tongue, collar, and signature midfoot/heel straps arriving in a rich navy blue. Gold branding drapes across the tongue, heel strap, and midfoot, with an oversized white swoosh hitting the midfoot strap. Heel and forefoot Zoom Air provided cushioning, with the sneaker’s signature herringbone outsole offering killer court traction.
However, this commemorative edition has a few updates, including the “Think 16” branding on the inner tongue and the gold Larry O’Brien trophy hangtag that’s arriving with all releases of the pack.
