The Nike LeBron Soldier 10 may go down as one of LeBron James’ best Nike shoes ever and now the Soldier 10 legend continues to grow as Nike unveils the FlyEase version of this shoe.
The LeBron Soldier 10 FlyEase has a new zipper construction and features an easier pull around the ankle. While the earliest iterations of FlyEase focused on replacing traditional lacing systems with something more accessible, the already lace-less Soldier 10 model expands to consider another opportunity: improved entry.
“One of the key learnings we’ve had in crafting accessible footwear is the importance of easy entry and exit of the shoe, not just simplifying its fastening system,” says Tobie Hatfield, Nike Senior Director of Athlete Innovation. “Eliminating the intricate hand movement of lace tying is important, but if the athlete cannot get their foot into the shoe, lacing becomes a moot point.”
LeBron James has served as a supportive ambassador for FlyEase since its inception and recently invited a number of children from the Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital to the Cavs practice facility where he presented them with their very own pair of the new FlyEase sneakers.
The Nike LeBron Soldier 10 FlyEase is now available on Nike.com.
