First LeBron James chose his designs for the initial facade at UNKNWN, then King James picked Freegums’ Nike LeBron 9 collabo to compliment the Miami Heat’s white jerseys during their home opener Tuesday at American Airlines Arena. It’s clear LBJ approves of MIA-native Alvaro Ilizarbe’s handstyles, and now the LeBron 9 he so deftly lined is being released as this year’s birthday tribute to one of the great talents the game of basketball has ever seen. This detail-rich design stands out precicely because its high contrast good looks can hold their own even away from the hardwood, and they’re sure to draw lines upon the New Years Eve release at select Nike Basketall stockists like Extra Butter. Have a closer look at some new images after the jump including the intricate tissue paper in which they’ll be wrapped, and if you can’t wait until the day after ‘Bron’s b-day to grab yours, secure a pair right now on eBay.
Nike LeBron 9
These Look Nothing Like The Scarfaces. I Saw Then In Person & These Are Super Nice. I Didn't Like The Scarfaces. Must Have These!
Got this yesterday! What a great hiliday to start here in the philippines! No line or what so ever just walk in nike athletic club and bamm! Sitting on the rack like freegums released in miami!
IMO All Lebrons in general when looking at them online computer screen look kinda weird. But its the real life in person view that gets you bruh. But I'm passing because I got a steal on the Christmas 9 Brons $190 shipped. #Blessed.
feelin these more than the homes. the visible flywire was throwing off the homes for me, but these correct that. very nice
They're real nice and I would cop if I didnt JUST grab the Cannons, Chinas, and Concords. Gotta save some money for next year.
I don't know bout y'all but I think that the Freegums is almost identical to the Home/Scarface version of the 9's, with only the added graffiti on the inside and some minor tweaks.
