Nike LeBron 9 ‘Pre-Heat’ – Release Info
The ‘China’ colorway has traditionally been the first LeBron colorway to release for each signature model, but thanks to LeBron’s relocation from Cleveland to Miami, a new annual tradition has risen. Last year’s ‘Pre-Heat’ colorway of the LeBron signature shoe, commonly referred to as the ‘South Beach’, featured the dazzling hot pink and turquoise blue colorway, but this year’s Pre-Heat will be the ‘Cannon’ colorway, inspired by the Air Force Base where the Miami Heat have trained during the off-season. The Nike LeBron 9 ‘Pre-Heat’ has already hit stores overseas, but will officially hit the states this Sunday, October 9th, at select retailers in Miami like MrRSports, and again on November 11th to wider audiences. Keep these dates circled on your calendar because they’re about to drop soon, or cop a pair in advance from limitedshoes on eBay.
Nike LeBron 9 ‘Pre-Heat’
Cannon/Volt-Slate Blue-Team Orange
10/9/11 (Miami), 11/12/11 (US)
It's all hype. Just like the Lebron 8 South Beach. I saw one guy wear it in public and it was UUU-gly.
WHY THE HELL ARE THEY CALLING THESE PRE HEATS JASON HIMSELF SAID THEY ARE CALLED THE CANNONS WTF HYPE MAN HYPE
Always thought this cw was pretty dope. They are definitely unique. Will probably pass and get the Blk/cement III's instead in Nov.
I am going to ave to agree with the ones on here that dislike these. These do not come close to the lebron 8 pre heat colorway. I am not talking about the colors cuz i know they are different. These are a miami dolphines colorway. dont get me wrong, its a cool shoe but the colorway is aiight in my opinion...dont get bamboozled into the hype that nike wants you to become part of...cool looking shoe but i give it a B-/C+
#NIKELEBRON9PREHEAT ARE LOOKING #SKR8..AND SO ARE THOSE #LB9CHINA..OTHER THEN THAT..ALL THE OTHER #COLORWAYS..LACK....
Not a big fan of Pre-Heats but more or less the Nike LeBron 8 Pre-Heat was a bit better executed than this one.
these shoes are a must cop for myself, and has been since SN showed these. Also, for the writer of this article, i see a couple of mistakes. First, it's not Elgin Air Force Base its Eglin Air Force Base. and last, Miami Heat had there training on Hurlburt Field which is next to Eglin Air Force Base. Cannon Air Force Base and Hurlburt Field are under the same Major Command. So hence the "Cannon" colorway. I know this cause i was stationed there when the Heat came to our base. Best part was our base team played against them. Don't take it the wrong way, just wanted to make that correction.
Just won't be a shoe that I would endear unless I actually feel the comfort of it. And I would still not be a fan of the exterior.
Thanks for the info. The 'Cannon' colorway is directly from the colorway as well - Cannon is that light sea-greenish color on the upper.
You say that now and next thing u will be saying is "I fell for the shoe" and u will be waiting In line like the rest
