Duke shows off new LeBron Soldier IX sneakers

The Duke Blue Devils are the defending national champions when they take the court in mid-November. They are certainly going to have to look the part when they do so.

The team shared a photo of their new sneakers for the upcoming season on its official Twitter account.

The new LeBron Soldier IX shoes by Nike are absolutely awesome.

These sneakers certainly make the Blue Devils look like champions. It shouldn’t affect the way they play, but they are going to be one of the top teams in the country regardless.

The Blue Devils make have a different look player-wise after losing four players to the NBA, but they are looking to be as dominant as they were last season. With the number one recruiting class and a new pair shoes on their feet, this shouldn’t be much of a problem.
