Nike LeBron 9 ‘Kentucky’ – Release Date
The idea for NCAA-inspired colorways of the Nike LeBron 9 actually goes back to the Nike Air Max LeBron VII, when three ‘TB’ inspired colorways released for Kentucky, Ohio State, and Clemson (though not officially, but those three schools rocked ‘em proudly during the 2010 March Madness Tournament). Then again, many of the LeBron take-down models from the Zoom Soldier line were also made in various team-oriented colorways, but the LeBron 9 is the first time an actual PE was made for specific schools (check out the Miami Hurricanes PE from yesterday). The released versions of the NCAA Pack of LeBron 9s won’t feature the PE logos on the tongue, but the beauty of these releases lie in the great colorways, like the Kentucky version that many have called an ‘Air Penny’ edition. This Saturday, October 15th, select Nike Basketball retailers like MrRSports will have these in stock as will Nikestore, so check out the detailed gallery of images below and let us know if these are a must-have for you.
