Exclusive Zoom Soldier 10s arrive on Friday.
Fashion designer John Elliott has teamed up with Nike once again to create a special edition pair of the LeBron Zoom Soldier 10 which will be launching exclusively at Nike's new SoHo location tomorrow, November 10th.
The John Elliott x Nike LeBron Zoom Soldier 10 sport a light grey built, accompanied by a marble looking graphic on the ankle strap, a splash of orange about the toe and a glow in the dark sole.
Speaking with Complex, Elliott explained why he felt the need to add some orange flair to the simple grey color scheme as well as the surreal feeling to be able to collaborate with a sportswear giant like Nike and a superstar athlete like LeBron.
"I decided to put the orange on the toe as an ode to the emotion I felt when I saw LeBron wearing these directional shoes for the first time," Elliott explained. "They were so striking to me, but I thought if I was going to strip it down, there has to be some thought process for a bit of a pop."
"Sometimes I think back, and I'm like, 'Damn. I accomplished that,'" he said. "I feel lucky to be able to work on these shoes. Any time you have a chance to work with the most important athlete in the world, you jump at that chance."
