For the most part, low-top LeBron shoes have been easily overlooked over the last few years, but the Nike LeBron 8 V/2 Low easily proved that low-top variants of the original ‘Mid’ models are strong enough to stand on their own – at least for now. Here’s a first look at the Nike LeBron 9 Low, and right off the bat you can distinguish the glaring differences between the Mid and Low; for starters, the Low utilizes a lightweight injected Phylon midsole with full-length 360 Air Max, while the Mid features the Zoom/Max Air system. The upper features Hyperfuse construction with a lightweight mesh tongue, a full inner sleeve, and synthetic overlays for structural integrity. What it doesn’t feature is the unique micro-weave material on the ankle panel.

Now that you’ve seen the Nike LeBron 9 Low, would you have liked to see full-length Max Air on the Nike LeBron 9 Mid, or perhaps the the Zoom/Max combo on the Low? It’s all a matter of individual tastes, and we won’t have the luxury of a nice side-by-side comparison between Mid and Low until Summer 2012, when the Nike LeBron 9 Low makes its official debut.

Keep in mind Lebrons are baskteball shoes , not shoes to knock out in . Dumbasses.

lebron's career and sneaker line has been all downhill since the season he was rocking 7's shame

aa wasted opportunity in my opinion. They should have went with the forefoot zoom/heel 180 combo iv been waiting on them to put that tech into a low top shoe to BALL in. People seem to forget these ARE ball shoes. maybe well get a v2 that will hopefully have the 180/zoom combo, be easier to obtain than the 8v2 lows, and have better construction than just the fuse upper which I'm not a fan of. Nike need to bring out a low zoom/max combo ball shoe. Zoom on its own isn't suitable for everyone. Max on its own isn't suitable for everyone. No heel cushioning at all isn't suitable for ANYONE! Get a grip Nike some people actually still wear BALL shoes TO BALL IN!

These are better than the highs. Plus that Air Max 360 sole is like a perfect fit on these.

Love um, & love the highs. Wish they would have done the 360 air unit on highs now though.

Way better than the high, but still ugly. Only thing that sells it better is the 360 air unit.

So what if it looks like the 360 BB lows, these look def better than them high-cut ones (the ankle support on the highs made it look ridiculous in a bad way IMO)

the hi top was already bad but jus making the ankle smaller and calling it a low top is jus pathetic nike

Much better.NIke listen to us sneakerheads and skip the high top version or at least trim the ankle.

lows look better imo, don't like the signature on the tongue tho

i like these a whole lot more than the high tops, my only question is why they went to a full length air unit on the bottom and didn't stick with the 180 unit that's on the high tops.

this came out of nowhere lol , this shoe is okay but compare the lebron 8 and the lebron 8 v2 low this cant even come close im sorry to say but visually this is a step down in the lebron line it will take a really nice colorway to make this shoe bett
