Nike LeBron 9 ‘Summit Lake’ – New Images

The Summit Lake Hornets player exclusive colorway of the Nike LeBron 9 was met with such a positive reaction when it was revealed this morning on Sneaker News, that the only thing resembling a negative comment was one expressing envy toward the recent history of unreleased heat from the Nike LeBron line.  But fret not, sneaker friends, because the ‘Summit Lake Hornets’ LeBron 9 might be released in limited numbers as with a variety of previous LeBron PEs, but they do indeed appear firmly pointed toward something better than a look-but-don’t-touch showoff.  LBJ’s Hornets were named after the Larry Johnson-led sensation that captured young ballers’ imaginations in the early ’90s; has this coincidence in timing led to the King’s best signature release some twenty years later?  Let us know how these rank against the other high-energy colorups that led the LeBron 9 charge and stick with Sneaker News for word on the US release date.  via MarqueeSole

2012 year of the hypebeasts... Seriously though, if sneakernews had just written: "Lebron 9 Purple/teal general release coming March 2012".... these would not be getting this attention.

Easy pickup, especially if you already got previous Summit Lake colorways

THESE are ill. Easy match to my Charlotte Hornets Starter from HS. When these come in with shipment, I'll just have to put a size 13 on hold in the back with my name on it, CANNOT wait!!!

So wait, this ISNT a womens cw? Not even a GS? Funny how all Summit lake have come and gone, hit factory outlets, but now they will make these 'limited' so all the "Sneaker heads" are excited to 'cop' these. lol. So cliche.

Looks like they're preparing for an eventuality where Lebron overstays his welcome in Miami, and goes to Louisiana. The shoe looks clean, I must admit. But I've never tried on a Lebron that I had to have.

These should be GS. China, Cannon & even Miami Hurricanes are better IMHO.

Actually, the white laces would look pretty nice in these. It'll bring out the white accents on outsole and the white flakes on the midsole, and make the purple stand out. If I can get my hands on these, I'd do it.

Edward

You would think he would give you the teal laces to go with it..

Donish

na, they have it that way for a reason. purple is the primary color and teal is secondary. if they had teal laces, it would balance out the colors and wouldn't look as good.
