Following news that Nike will drop Zoom LeBron Soldier 9 PEs for the Kentucky Wildcats and Ohio State Buckeyes comes some exciting news about another Swoosh-sponsored university. 

NikeBlog spotted these "Oregon Ducks" Zoom LeBron Soldier 9 PEs on eBay, and it looks like will be one of the rare occurrences where an Oregon PE releases to the public. The images depict a black-based LeBron Soldier 9 that shifts to green around the heel and is accented with hits of yellow. Ducks branding appears on each ankle strap, while the team's mascot shows up on the heel tab.

Technically, the pair pictured is a China-exclusive EP version with an XDR outsole, but according to NikeBlog, this is the exact same sneaker that will drop stateside, just without the blacktop-ready outsole. 

If you were salty that you couldn't cop the white "Oregon Ducks" Soldier 9 PEs back in November, this news should come as a pleasant surprise. Stay tuned for the official release details on these.
