If past two seasons are any indication, the Nike LeBron Soldier 9 will be one of the most worn sneakers in the NBA next season. And it looks like this double-strapped, LeBron 12-inspired model is indeed next in line.

But what's going on with the supposed Soldier 9? Below are two 'What The' samples, one in white and the other black-based. Which version, if either, is releasing is unknown at the moment, but surfacing this early sets an exciting tone for the shoe.

Look for the Soldier 9 to launch sometime this summer.
