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.
