Kentucky Basketball Nike LeBron Zoom Soldier 9 Revealed

The Kentucky Wildcats are getting some rocking shoes this upcoming season thanks to LeBron James and Nike.

According to Kicks on Fire, the Cats are getting their own version of the Nike Zoom Lebron Soldier 9. The Zoom Soldier 9 is a popular shoe among NBA players, so it only seems fair UK is getting some for a roster full of future NBA ballers.

The UK version of the LeBron Zoom Soldier 9 comes with a white and blue makeup with a gradient effect on the midsole, a checkerboard inner lining and a metallic silver Swoosh. The best part of the shoe is the #BBN hashtag on the tongue strap.

Here are some shots of the new kicks, via KOF:

I'm iffy on whether I like the checkerboards or not, but the shoe as a whole is pretty swag. I'm not sure if there's a way the general public can get a pair since Nike is only making them for players as of now, but I'm sure plenty of UK fans will try and find a way.
