The University of Oregon is able to make pretty sure that its teams are outfitted with special footwear for any big games, the school enjoying a deep connection with Nike. On Wednesday night the men's basketball team will begin Pac-12 play, doing so in this exclusive Nike LeBron Soldier 10.

The sneaker doesn't owe as much to the yellow and green as most Oregon designs, putting those colors in the accents. It also doesn't feature any overt Duck imagery, although the team is mentioned on the heel's pulltab.

The Ducks will tip off at 9 p.m. EST against UCLA, an Adidas-sponsored school that will switch to Under Armour come next school year.
