As we reported earlier today, Ohio State recently signed a contract extension with Nike, meaning you can expect Buckeyes-branded shoes and gear for years to come. But hey, no need to wait until that contract kicks in in 2018 for the shoes. There’s already the Nike LeBron Soldier 9 Ohio State!
Created for Buckeyes basketballers, the shoe will actually see a retail release later this year. Sure to please folks in Columbus and beyond, the Nike LeBron Soldier 9 Ohio State sports a scarlet mesh upper, offset by pops of grey and white that align the colorway firmly with OSU. Just to clarify that point though, “BUCKEYES” is emblazoned on either ankle-strap.
The Nike LeBron Soldier 9 Ohio State, while reportedly launching this spring, can already be found at the moment: right here on eBay. Keep in mind that the retail price will be $140.
