With 2011 coming to a close, free thinkers are beginning to ponder a personal ‘year in review’ covering range of topics like world news, sports, and music. The Jay-Z x Kanye West ‘Watch The Throne’ tour covers all three of those aforementioned categories; it’s one of the most successful tours in history, selling out huge arenas at every tour stop, and with the Nike LeBron 9 PE coming into the mix, it certainly brings in the sports flavor to the conversation. The ‘Watch The Throne’ PE of the LeBron 9 surfaced not long ago, and with just a handful of pairs to be rumored in existence, not much information has been made – until now. This particular pair is currently on display at LeBron James’ new boutique UNKNWN, and the first-hand detailed viewing shows just how luxurious a basketball shoe can be. Building off of a simple Black/Gold colorway, the detailed inner lining, inspired by the trademark of Givenchy Creative Director Riccardo Tisci.

I've noticed that in the first pics we seen of these the gold emblem had a K W on it, maybe they're Kanye's maybe they're not. In these though it says L J which wouldn't be a surprise considering that it's LeBron's store and he is putting them on display. Maybe Big Sean's pair has B S or Jiggas got a J Z, thas dope. -RT
