Nike LeBron 9 ‘Kentucky’ – Release Reminder
The Nike LeBron 9 ‘Kentucky’ is set to debut tomorrow, but let’s take a look back at another Nike LeBron Kentucky PE – the Nike Air Max LeBron VII. The Kentucky Wildcats debuted that sick patent-leather PE on February 1st, 2010, when LeBron James himself sat courtside during a game. That PE, which could also be compared to the Nike Air Penny sneaker, featured a blue patent leather mudguard with Black/White upper detailing. Now compare the two – the Air Max LeBron VII and LeBron 9 – and tell us which of the two looks more ‘Penny Hardaway’; the LeBron 9, which bears some resemblance to the Nike Air 1/2 Cent, or the Air Max leBron VII, which could be another ‘Heroes Pack’ variation? Well, you’re better off picking the LeBron 9′s side, because these will actually release in stores – tomorrow to be exact. Expect them at select Nike Basketball retailers or pick up a pair now on eBay.
Nike LeBron 9
Varsity Royal/White-Black (Kentucky)
this was one of the most limited colorways by far. Amazing how these things are still out there! Beautiful colorway!
Still a full size run of these everywhere. Looks like the only color-ways of these that will sell are the hype ones. Nike dropped the ball on these.
Sorry to hype... But I'm coppin. If I can, fake store workers acting bad bout if dey gottem or not n da a. I eff wit dese doe.
I can't stand the price increases throughout the main signature lines. Jordans have been insanely expensive and uninspired, Lebron 9s are pretty sick looking, especially these, but $170? half way 180 air max? Don't let me get started with Kobe VII. $180? Who does Nike think he is? Jordan? Plus it's super ugly with that removeble strap.
This whole concept of the shoe is not fire. The only real HEAT colorway I seen of these shoes are the cannons and those shits aren't all that.
I'm really feeling the LeBron 9's, but these really don't deserve to be any more than $160 like the 8's were. $160 is still steep too, I'd rather buy myself a Retro.
