This “Summit Lake Hornets” edition of the newly introduced Nike Solider 9 gets dressed in the Hornets colors, a childhood rec basketball team of LeBron James. The shoe is built with a Hyperfuse-mesh upper that is done in Deep Purple, with Aqua-Teal accents on the liner. Black adds a nice contrast to the shoe that covers the Hyperposite overlay. In addition to the popular color scheme, the Solider 9 also receives an extra strap for maximum lock-down support, and the numbers ‘2’ and ‘3’ displayed on the straps.
Now a traditional annual colorway for the LeBron signature line, this time the “Summit Lake Hornets” edition appears to be hitting the Nike LeBron Soldier 9 instead of the LeBron 12. The all-new strap-happy Soldier model features the colors of his middle school age rec center youth league, with a purple base and teal and white accents. Completing the theme is a hornet logo on each heel tab. Of course, they also double as an ideal sneaker for any Charlotte Hornets fans.
