Unless you’ve been living under a cool and damp rock, you already know that ‘Watch The Throne’ Tour by Jay-Z and Kanye West has taken the hip-hop world by storm, thanks to the Jay-Z x Kanye West collaborative album, which was followed by the magnanimous concert tour that has garnered millions of viewers in just a short amount of time. The ‘Watch The Throne’ album and tour will forever be recognized as one of the greatest hip-hop efforts of all-time, and Jay-Z’s NBA Superstar pal LeBron James is getting in the mix. How? Check out the Nike LeBron 9 “Watch The Throne”; set off by a crispy-clean Black/Gold colorway and a translucent outsole, this special edition LeBron 9 is elevated to the level of kingship with an ornately designed inner lining and shoelace combo resembling the Watch The Tour album artwork, which was done by Givenchy Creative Director Riccardo Tisci. Continue reading for detailed shots of the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Watch The Tour’ and stick with Sneaker News for more updates, and let us know if you attended the latest Watch The Throne tour stop, which is currently in Miami! via randomactsofcool.
just like the album ... garbage, the whole lebron 9 is garbage, ill stick to my lbj 8's n 7's n 6's etc...no one liked the 9 when the pics came out n then yall just crumbled under pressure seeing these crappy things every goddam day
if #WTT is coming to your town and u dont have tickets... kill yourself... i went last night and it was EPIC!!!!
"were gonna skate to one song and one song only!" I'd cop these with that being said...you are now watching the throne.
? whats so special on this edition? does it have a real gold? no same material but different color...
I have a strong feeling that these will be released on Dec 1st at Lebron's UNKNWN store grand opening!!! If so im there!!!! :) im a fan of the 9's and WTT!!!
Thanks for the post, it's a very interesting version, but someone from Sneaker News needs to grab a dictionary fast and look up the word 'magnanimous.'
Something tells me these will end up being a friends & family release. If so, it's gonna end up being the best LeBron not released to the public since the Fruity Pebbles IV.
wtf these are ugly!! without that huge lace charm or whatever you wanna call it.. it doesnt represent watch the throne whatsoever
the inside of the shoe is pretty much the album cover by Givenchy. http://images.freshnessmag.com/wp-content/uploads...
I wouldn't mind taking out the laces and changing the lining and making it a BHM, but yeah they're pretty dope.
Except for the fact that there are probably ten pair of these as opposed to the over 2000 pair of south beaches
would you be mad if they were...these deserve to have a retail value of a 1000+ based on the concept alone
cray as in crazy... like when ppl say " you so cray cray" ... but worldstarhiphop poisons ppl w/ over-analysis sometimes
Why does everyone have to think they're right? The term is whatever you interpret it to be. No need to start a fight.
