Never (in this decade) has a sneaker caught the attention of non-sneaker media outlets like the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Cannon’ did. The military-inspired colorway of the ‘Cannon’ was deemed newsworthy by sports blogs, fashion blogs, gossip blogs, and even the biggest names in those respective categories, like ESPN and CNN. LeBron James debuted the ‘Cannon’ LeBron 9 during that star-studded South Florida All-Star Classic that was held in late September, and since then we’ve all been patiently awaiting the wide release (these dropped first in limited numbers at select retailers in Miami). The release date for cannon was originally set at November 4th, but Nike has just confirmed a minor postponement of this special edition colorway to December 3rd. November is already a jam-packed month with big-name kicks, so perhaps this delay is a blessing in disguise. Now that you have the new date circled on your calendars, are these worth the wait? If your patience is thinning, grab a pair right now on 2xwashoes on eBay.

just got mines!! def coppin again when they drop.. dopest colorway since the preheats n i aint missin out again foolishly!!
the 3rd is a saturday, Lebrons have been releasing on Fridays the last couple years, you guys got the original release date mixed up so I don't trust this confirmation anyway, all hype...but i do want these, only 9's i see myself copping
this is good news for people who have seen the 9's already and know how nice they actually are...the releases were way to close together before this change
Well it doesn't bother me any because these are spring/summer colors anyway they would just been in the closet collecting dust anyway in my closet but itprobably sucks for those who live in warmer climates though who can rock colors like this all year round
The original release date was Nov 11th. If you're going to reference your own article, at least read it. And please stop calling this a military inspired colorway. This colorway was "inspired" by a specific Air Force Base, not the entire military. Although I have looked all over the website for that base and have not seen anything close to these colors.
Amped I been copped. N for a low price too now I got em dumb early. All the more Time to rock before they even drop. #blowinmoneyfast
