In our talk with LeBron designer Jason Petrie, the man stressed again and again the importance of using the sneaker and its different releases to communicate a clear story. The drops we’ve seen for LeBron’s ninth have achieved that so far, and the ‘Christmas Day’colorway arriving soon definitely does that as well. Hopefully capturing some of the elation brought about by the return of the NBA in the heart of the holiday season, this Christmas release has held the attention of many despite fierce competition from other big-time drops in the month of December. Follow us after the jump for more images of LeBron’s piece of the upcoming Christmas Pack 2011 from Nike Basketball, and let us know in the comments if these are on your wish list. via RMK
Nike LeBron 9
Sport Red/Reflective Silver-White-Lucky Green
These pic's make the shoes look kinda ugly. But IMO I like these a lot better than the 2010 8's. That sole is straight gorgeous. So ya boy gotta cop
This has nothing to do with this sneaker, but I was having a converstaion with a friend today about the price of dope sneakers ,and honestly to me nike sucks they dont care about us they just want to make money. Nike does stuff for charity and things like that yea I get it, but what about the average joe? what about guys that have been spending their hard earned money on nike products? I guess all corporations are the same. Nike aint give me shi* for christmas but higher prices.
everytime a new pic of an xmas shoe comes out, i want it, so its like i been flip flopping between these and the kobes for about a week!
I will never understand why Nike/Jordan Brand ship out limited amounts of the shoes ppl actually want and instead over saturate the market with bullshit releases!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
these are a QS and I know pretty much all HOH will have them, I have a feeling Footlockers will not, but they will also be on nikestore at midnight.
Well they're a business? Im pretty sure their first aim would be to make a profit, which they do very well. Sooo you should probably think before you talk next time hey
Your a moron. A sheep who doesn't think about the fact that Nike is Inly a business because we the people allow It. It's average guys like us that carry Nike on our backs and all they can do to show this appreciation is give us free shipping on 225 dollar sneakers. Ask your self how much a pair of total foamposites costs to make. Like doesnt have any american factories there paying thise people over seas like 10 a month if that yet they have the nerve to charge so much for them. I don't know I still love nike but I guess Its a love hate relationship. Instead of giving free stuff to the people they give stuff to people who can afford It lol the irony.
