This Nike Zoom Soldier 9 colorway draws inspiration from the popular lemon-lime beverage Sprite.

Sporting the signature colors of the iconic soda brand, the Nike Zoom Soldier 9 really does look like a can of Sprite. The mesh upper is a bright Game Royal blue. The supportive strap configuration is done in Green Strike, and the interior of the shoe is lined in black. The rubber outsole -- which features Zoom technology cushioning -- is a vibrant, eye-catching white. The Nike swoosh on the side of the shoe is colored in a translucent blue speckled with white, reminiscent of the refreshing effervescence of a can of Sprite.

These Sprite sneakers use an unusual pop culture influence to create an attention-grabbing, refreshingly bright version of the Nike Zoom Soldier basketball shoe.
