It’s not that easy to repeatedly shuffle around White, Black, and Red and create distinct colorways, but the LeBron 9 is rather conducive to that. With all these parts and sectionals that make up one large LeBron 9 upper, it’s actually quite easy to duplicate a colorway without redundancy, and the ‘Freegums’ x Nike LeBron 9 is one great example of that. It might be a bit similar to the ‘Scarface’/Home colorway, but what sets the Miami-artist designed special edition apart is that it uses intricate detailing on the white upper Hyperfuse shell and the inner-lining, designed by Freegums. Sneaker News was first to drop information on the local-artist collaboration, but now we’d like to add in some more information – a release date. The Nike LeBron 9 ‘Freegums’ will be available for purchase on New Year’s Eve, so plan accordingly and let us know if you are looking to add these to your growing LeBron 9 collection. Images via MS.
Nike LeBron 9
This is the best color way of the shoe that I have seen so far no doubt. I still couldn't rock em though they just look generic in my opinion and I'm not too impressed about the shoe design.
they've done such a good job with the 9's colorways, too bad the shoe itself is just a horrid looking shoe
This is the only Lebron 9 colorway that I have liked and I will buying on release day. The detail in this shoe is great and the simplicity of the colorway make it real nice. Not every shoe has to have neon colors or 6 different colors mixed in to be dope.
It's amazing that this shoe is SO wearable in certain colors and not at all in others. This is a definite must have!
