By now, you should have a firm grasp on the Nike LeBron 9 Low; Hyperfuse upper, no weave panel, 360-degree Max Air unit. After previewing a number of upcoming colorways (and providing the first detailed look at a Black/Volt/White pair not long ago), Sneaker News is now ready to roll out the red carpet on the upcoming Summer 2012 hit – the Nike LeBron 9 Low. Here we have a look at a new high-energy colorway that may very well be the Dark Grey/Mint Candy edition we showed you during the Summer 2012 preview of the shoe; it features a dark grey upper with the dazzling mint on the outsole with touches of aqua blue on the tongue, midfoot ‘wing’ and Max Air unit, and is currently being dubbed the ‘Easter’ edition (possibly a May release?). Do these rival the Solar Red or Sprite LeBron 8 V/2? Check out the detailed images below and let us know what you think. via marqueesole.
Not fucking with the Sprites or Solar Reds whatsoever. They are sweet though..the shoe could look a lot better if a few alterations were made however. Put a mint outline around the swoosh..mint in the laces..something.
The midtops might be better for basketball, but honestly i much rather get the lowtops, design wise. Sweet ass colorway too. Looking forward to more.
They don't even have the flywire near the toes like the past previews have shown. Also they should have kept some of that carbon fiber weave somewhere in the shoe. I'm kinda let down on these.
Agree with that totally...but these are sweet. If anyone hasn't seen the Solar Red's in person.....oooooo you're missing out on beauty
