Nike have just released a special LeBron Soldier 12 FlyEase inspired by an infamous Instagram post shared by The King from 2017. After the Cavs’ slow start to the season, ‘Bron famously shared a meme from the classic kids’ TV show Arthur to vent his frustration, and now Nike have used the show’s protagonist as the muse for a new colourway.
‘University Gold’ inspired by Arthur’s shirt hits the upper, accompanied by a light blue leather overlay on the toe box to rep his jeans. Red appears on the heel and tongue, as black and white straps weaving around the upper to provide the lockdown. Down below, gum outsoles add to the throwback theme, while FlyEase technology and Zoom Air cushioning keep things progressive enough for the court.
Get among the 90s nostalgia! The Nike LeBron Soldier 12 ‘Arthur’ is available now.
