As has become customary around the NBA playoffs, the latest installment of LeBron's slightly more affordable Soldier line is starting to pop up at retailers. The newest Nike LeBron Soldier 12 to leak is inspired by his high school, St. Vincent-St. Mary.
Thanks to nikelebron.net, there are some initial images of the "SVSM Home" colorway that will be arriving at retailers later this year. The pair uses a majority white upper with green hits being used on the branding, sock liner, outsole, and speckled midsole. Special details include a faint silhouette of King James' signature Dunkman logo on the heel, SVSM logos on each insole, and further Irish branding on the central portion of the tongue tab.
The Solider 12 continues the laceless setup that was first adopted with the Soldier 10 and this time opts for a singular cross strap system that weaves its way along the upper to provide lockdown. The upper itself is composed of the Battleknit used on the LeBron 15 with leather hits used on the toe box and heel area.
While the Fighting Irish basketball team has consistently received exclusive PEs from the LeBron line over the years, this is the first "SVSM" colorway that will be available at retail in almost a decade. Release information is currently scarce, but expect the Nike LeBron Soldier 12 "SVSM Home" to hit select Nike Basketball stockists in the near future.
