Nike designer Jason Petrie has been working on basketball sneaker designs since the launch of the LeBron 7 -- recently, the brand showcased a look at the LeBron Soldier 14 silhouette. The latest sneaker model spotlights speed and security first and foremost. Petrie states, that "designing the soldier is similar to designing, a sports car.
You're innovating off of a single ideal, which is lockdown." The laceless enclosure of the model is discarded and is secured with a dual lace and toggle system. To add elements of comfort, the shoe is implemented with a Zoom Air setup beneath the foot for maximum responsive practicality. The upper is woven with synthetics in black with white neoprene.
