In 2012, 16-year-old Matthew Walzer, a teen born with cerebral palsy, wrote a letter to Nike CEO Mark Parker explaining the challenges of tying shoes those with physical disabilities can face. Nike responded by creating the innovative Flyease in collaboration with Matthew — a footwear technology that resembles a wrap-around zipper system in place of laces. Fast forward to now, and the company revives the technology with the LeBron Soldier 9 (Matthew loved the LeBron Zoom Soldier 6). Our only available photos so far reveal two distincts colorways: purple with silver accents and navy with gold, with contrasting blue speckling along the enlarged midsoles. Co-branded “LEBRON” and “JAMES” logos are embroidered on the tongues above Nike’s Swooshes and LeBron’s symbol on the midstrap.

Watch out for the Nike LeBron Soldier 9 Flyease editions to be released in the US soon. Did you also see the Flyease version of the Nike LeBron Zoom Soldier 8?
