So pervasive is the Nike Air Max 97 in 2017 that even basketball sneakers are looking to the shoe for inspiration. The Nike LeBron line references the original “Silver Bullet” 97 colorway on this, a similarly styled Nike LeBron Soldier 11.
The shoe has reflective accents, a familiar colorway, a striped sole, and a small Swoosh hit on the upper that all connect it to the Air Max 97.
While images of this LeBron Soldier 11 have been floating around for a week or so, Nike only recently unveiled the shoes. They're listed on SNKRS now here as releasing on Aug. 17 for $140.
