After a relatively quiet buildup that saw some voice an unsurprisingly rigid preference for nostalgic designs, the Nike LeBron 9 has set the internet sneakerhead scene aflame with the revelation of banger after banger bookending the shoe’s official unveiling last week. The China edition is getting most of the attention thanks to its beautiful Neptune Blue design, but we musn’t forget about the colorway that started this firestorm. The LeBron 9 ‘Cannon’ was seen as an homage to King James’ territory in south Florida, but the palette was later confirmed to correspond with the look and feel of a camp event from last year. They’re impressive irrespective of the inspiration and you can see more images of this November 11th release and stick with Sneaker News in case we find them available early. via IST

everybody was hating on the 8s when they 1st came out and look how those turned out, just wait 2 about two months and see how many people change their mine about these smh
I wanted to like these shoes but I just can't. The silhouette is just too damn ugly. The Chinas may be its only saving grace, and the 9s popularity may just plummet with the lack of an NBA season this year.
