Since the Soldier III, Kay Yow Breast Cancer Awareness (or "Think Pink") colorways have been a fixture in LeBron's offseason team signature line. The latest LeBron model to get the pinkfire treatment is the Air Max Soldier V, which we get a closer look at here today.
The shoe features a pink Flywire-supported synthetic upper with white tumbled leather overlays. The inner liner, tongue and laces are also done in pink, while white takes care of Swoosh branding and the perforated support strap. The Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon is embroidered on the tongue of the she, replacing "SLDR V" debossing seen on the standard release. The two colors then finish off the Max Air cushioned midsole and outsole to round out the theme.
Expect the "Kay Yow" Air Max Soldier V to hit stores in July.
