Already nine LeBron 9 colorways have released, and a single NBA game hasn’t been played! The Cannons, inspired by the military base where the Miami Heat trained during the 201o offseason, actually released in early October at select Miami retailers as this year’s ‘Pre-Heat’ colorway, but the rest of the world has its chance to add these to respective collections this Saturday. Featuring a high-energy combination of military-themed colors (and a secondary set of orange-on-orange speckled laces), the LeBron 9 ‘Cannon’ is arguably the most popular of the bunch thus far, and should go fast once they become available. You can cop these this Friday, December 2nd at select Nike retailers, while others like WEST will have them on sale Saturday. Or you can ensure yourself a pair now by hitting up eBay.
Nike LeBron 9
Cannon/Volt-Slate Blue-Team Orange
I ended up getting cement 3s and duncans on black friday which did put a dent in my sneaker funds. While I personally think these look good in pics (still yet to see in person), I am passing over for the black flips. I hate having to pick between shoes, I like, it's like a parent picking their favorite kid, totally suuucks!
SneakerNews always wants to remove comments that point out errors in the post. If the post is supposed to be news for the people and the post has the release date wrong, wouldn't they want the correct information to get out there? They won't even change the post becaue they are too full of themselves to admit the mistake. Give the people the TRUTH!
These actually release on Friday 11/2. Been changed on Nike.com a while ago and announced via @nikestore today. 12/02/11 Lebron 9 Cannon/Volt-Slate Blue-Team Orange $170 469764-00 4http://help-us.nike.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/20455/session/L3RpbWUvMTMyMjYxNjg1Mi9zaWQvSCo0NjluS2s%3D
Got mine already a month ago and they are nice. Also picked up the China's and they blow the Cannons out of the water IMO.
i heard from some heads on black friday these will be limited to House of Hoops locations and select nike sportswear locations. Is this true?
Yeah, get a 1/2 size if you're wearing for casual wear. Go up a full size if you got a wide foot though. If you are going to hoop in them get your normal size.... But I suggest to at least going up 1/2 a size- they are fucking comfortable.
personally i think similar, i would HIGHLY recommend ordering a 1/2 size up. I have a pair of the miami nights and i ordered my actual size, sooooooooooooo tight.
Probably not. Usually extremely limited releases like that are not so readily available months prior to release date.
