This Saturday, October 1st, the Nike LeBron 9 will make its official worldwide debut when the Neptune Blue/Total Orange Nike LeBron 9 ‘China’ releases in China. Here we have a look at a limited edition box packaging for the Nike LeBron 9 China Edition, which features the China Lion logo with a gorgeous backdrop of Chinese-inspired art; it features two contrasting tones of blue and orange strokes of color, and a matching t-shirt will be included as well. Some unfortunate conditions apply: Only nine units of this special box packaging will be released, going to the first 9 customers when the LeBron 9 ‘China’ goes on sale on Nikestore China. Check out the extra shots of the packaging below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for U.S. release information of the Nike LeBron 9 China Edition. via weibo.
Nike LeBron 9 China Edition
Neptune Blue/Current Blue-Total Orange
10/1/11 (China release)
nike is a china brand str8 up, their loyalty is to the sweatshop owners not u.s customers .....funny china bootlegs all their stuff so their double dipping lol @ nike ....one day china will bootleg humans
coppin wit da quickness huge lebron fan.... hyperfuse, n flywirei n da shoes. bet feel gud insane def ballin n those
I would pay the originally rumored price of $250 to receive the limited edition box with the shoes, but will Nike do that HELL NO!! because it's just easier for them to release a small number of the "packages" in their factory homeland just to drive hype and resellers asking price through the damn roof. I guess Nike doesn't believe in "loyalty" to the U.S. consumers when it comes to Special & Limited releases.
Hello..... Nike aren't you a USA based company headquartered in Beaverton,Oregon?? Why do keep the US market out in the cold on special packaging??
I hope they release these in the same capacity as overseas, I will definitely buy these.. I bet Nike will release these in the U.S. in a regular Lebron 9 shoebox & NO T-SHIRT...
You will be able to get a pair when some asshole puts them on eBay for like $800-$1000. You will see a couple of them if not all of 9 of them for sale on eBay. The people who get them know they can make a huge profit with them. There is always idiots out there with more money than brains that will pay a stack for them. I fuckin hate resellers.
One thing I've noticed in all the lebron 9 pics is that they don't really like showing the inner side views...it seems like they're always the outer side views...random, but jus wanted to put that out there
i can't wait for the state side release, these will be the lebron 9 i'm going to spend my $170 on, although a month ago i didn't think i'd be buying lebron 9's at all.
I've purchased the lebron 7 china, summit lake hornets, entourage for my 11 year old daughter. She is/will be wearing all of these in games for her club team. Do people generally buy them and not play in them? or just add to collection. Mind you, when her season is over, they go back in the box, she wants to wear them to school but I say HELLS to the NO! I just pre-ordered the lebron 9 china, she WILL wear those in games too. Gonna get some lebron 9 ID's too.
You really don't think they are? Well maybe not the packaging but the shoe at least...or are you talking anything?
In the first picture, with both shoes showing. The right shoe is facing you, and you can see the inner side of the shoe. The shoe next to it is the left shoe, and it's back is facing you.
nuts cuz they get the good shit. If you think these china exclusives wouldn't sell as well in the states your on that dumb shit.
