With only few days left until the official release of the Nike Zoom Soldier II we wanted to let potential buyers know what are the differences between the General Release version and Sample, which has been posted on NLB several times. The main difference is something that is very easy to notice as we mentioned about it before. It’s the Dunkman logo printed on the sole (1). The other dissimilarities that we’ve been able to spot is the swoosh on the back of the shoe and LeBron’s signature stitched behind the pull tab, which the samples didn’t have. As for the swoosh the thing is that in the GR version it’s sewn-in into the shoe, not glued-on like it appeared when the first sample pics surfaced (4). Also, the tongue is different cause the Sample had navy tongue with red circle at the top, however, the GR version has white tongue and navy circle (3). The last difference that we managed to find are #2 and #3 triangles that appear on the medial side of the shoe (Gold – Sample, Navy – GR) (2). See the pics below too see the all the distinctions.
