Nike LeBron Soldier 9 Kentucky

The Nike LeBron Soldier 9 has been a rather collegiate shoe as of late between the Ohio State and LSU editions that connect it to Nike-affiliated schools across the country.

The shoe stays in that mode with this upcoming release, which is a nod to the Kentucky Wildcats. The design has the university's familiar blue and white, "BBN" writing across the straps and UK logos on the heel that are left out of this photo (but are visible here).

These college editions of the LeBron Soldier 9 are starting to hit European retailers now, meaning a domestic release shouldn't be too far off.
