LeBron James honors his kids on his unreleased Game 5 Nike sneakers

As Nike Basketball's premier signature athlete, LeBron James has more than his fair share of basketball sneakers to choose from. He's been wearing all kinds of rare models to practice in, but on game days, he's been (mostly) going with the more recent releases.

Lately, however, we've seen James break out a model which doesn't release until later this summer. The Nike LeBron Soldier 10 can best be described as the secondary sneaker in LeBron's signature line, but the newest edition, which features three straps across the front, is one of the more stylish we've seen.

Facing elimination in Monday's Game 5, LeBron once again went with the Soldier 10s. But this time, he had the initials of his three children -- Bronny, Bryce and Zuhri -- written front and center across the bottom strap.

James finished with 41 points, 16 rebounds, seven assists, three steals and three blocked shots in the Cavaliers' 112-97 victory. Sometimes, family can be the greatest motivation of all.
