In 2010, Nike basketball got in touch with Miami based artist Alvaro ‘Freegums’ Ilazarbe for a special collaborative project that only a select few could accomplish. Nike’s desire for a home-grown perspective on a black and red lebron colorway was easily fulfilled by Freegums, who prizes black and white motifs and intricate brush strokes and utilizes those points of view in his work. Together, Nike and Freegums finished off this sick Nike lebron 9 colorway, infusing both the art culture of Miami while celebrating LeBron James’ birthday (been a while since we got a ‘Birthday’ release), and tomorrow will be your chance to cop one of the most understated lebron releases in years. Expect these at select Nike basketball retailers tomorrow, or pick up a pair now from ivehademall on eBay.
