Nike, LeBron James celebrate USA Basketball’s Olympic success with Gold release

The United States of America claimed a third straight gold medal at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games with a convincing 96-66 win over Serbia and LeBron James, along with the guys at Nike wanted to commemorate the achievement.

James decided to skip the Olympic this summer due to rest as he prepares to defend the NBA title with the Cleveland Cavaliers. But there was no doubting that he regretted the decision to skip playing for Team USA. So despite not being in Rio and winning what would have been his third straight gold medal, LeBron has released a special pair of LeBron Soldier 10 USA Gold sneakers that he no doubt would have rocked if on the court at the Carioca Arena.

Via Nike:

The LeBron Soldier 10 Gold Medal combines a subtle White/Metallic Gold colorway that looks very similar to LeBron’s NBA Finals PE. Mismatched Red and Obsidian insoles are all about that patriotic bond that holds the team together. The luxurious looking USA logo on the heel tab combined with an icy outsole make for the perfect finish.

The shoe is out now at Nike Basketball retailers across the globe.
