NBA Feet: LeBron James – Nike LeBron 9 ‘Freegums’
LeBron James is kicking off the 2011-12 NBA Season with back-to-back on-court wears of two high-energy colorways of the Nike LeBron 9. He started things off with the ‘Christmas’ on the Sunday, and followed that up with the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Freegums’, which is actually a special release commemorating his birthday, which falls this Friday, December 30th. The Freegums, of course, is especially distinguished for its detailed graphic on the inner lining as well as the tonal print on the Hyperfuse shell upper; it’s a nice home-grown touch to the Nike LeBron, as Freegums is an artist of the local scene in Miami. Other notable kicks from that game included Dwyane Wade’s ‘Home’ colorway of the Jordan Fly Wade 2 and Juwan Howard’s Air Jordan X ‘Chicago’. Check out more shots of LeBron James in action courtesy of Yahoo! and let us know how these compare to previous Nike LeBron ‘Birthday’ releases – or pick up a pair of the Freegums right now on eBay.
Got the freegums today here in the philippines! According to the sales lady in nike store this shoe arrived 3 days ago! What a vacation il go back to australia with freegums which they are not gonna release! Damn!
glad the freegums arent recievin the hype. at least i know ndc wont crash 12/31 when i'm placin my order
Probably gonna make the "Freegums" my first LeBron. I've wanted the Christmas 8's for a while, but I can never find a pair for less than 280.
the only way dwade shoes look good is from distance, n i cant wait for some green/black 10's to drop
I swear if it wasn't for "hypebeast" and "ebay" there is no way in hell a pair of lebrons would cost more than some j's!!!! And ppl wonder why Nike keep hiking up prices.......because ppl sit for hrs in line to get a pair of shoes they don't know shit about just to resell them for triple the price!!!!
@donalddamsky it has nothing to do with what looks good for most of the team jordan guys. ray allen wants what can give him the biggest advantage on the court. but i do agree some of his pe's are ridiculously sick. like the 11's.
i guess nobody took a pic of howards chi x's...and JB needs to make sugar ray some new retro pe's, those team jays just arent cutting it
someone is mad, lebrons > jordans in quality and performance what are you looking forward to lebron IX or jordan 2012.... yeah thats what i thought
why his fly wade 2's are killing them in the PERFORMANCE GAME, this isn't a beauty contest, so kick rocks nigga
