It’s always a bit hectic for sneakerheads when multiple must-haves drop on the same day. You’re standing in line for one pair while trying to grab the other online via your smartphone, crossing your fingers that you don’t strike out. Well if you’re checking for the Nike LeBron 9, then we’ve got word of a day that should be pretty hectic indeed: March 2nd, 2012. First up there’s the always popular Dunkman colorway, a Metallic Silver/Bright Mango, and the ‘Griffey’ colorway with the swingman logo on the back. Keep in mind that the ‘green abyss’ that shows up on the Griffey pair is actually more of a light aqua, a precedent set by this Zoom KD IV. Follow us after the jump for the full release info for March 2012 and let us know how many of these you’ll be rocking.

man i thought i was gonna be able to slow down a bit after december but looks like that aint happening february n march are crazy
the mangos are the best ones of all......but i will pass on all of them because of the lebron 9 all star's
nice!! my fav outta the three is the griffey but they come out in march ..... ima be broke cuz jordan got some stuff too and the playoff 12s come a month later
why drop all on the same day? fuck it though I like both colorways that I can see. lets get us nice boxes besides that plan white and red box.
I gotta give it to the lebron line they not playin no games with these colorways Jordan could take a page out they book I love retro haha but damn they need a little innovation
They may fucking release gazillions of fucking colorways but am not buying these. The LBJ 9 design itself is an EPIC FAIL!!! The LBJ 8's (highs & lows) design remain a much better/superior than the 9's. I can't wait for LBJ 10's and see if it can topple the 8's.
I really think JB/Nike had a closed private meeting and collectively said at all cost lets get every last dime out of these sneaker heads! It's frustrating and cool as hell to have all these options but seeing as how somebody signs my checks I'm gonna have to miss out on something this year!! Just reality :-(
you sir are an idiot the the lebron 9 destroy the 8s plus performance absolutely murders it, max air for the heel zoom in the forefoot, pull tabs for the laces for a superior lockdown, nike pro combat for the damn heel notches yeah nuff said
I don't agree at all. I think in terms of design, the 9's are much better than the 8's, and I thought the 8's were awesome. I was at the Duke vs Temple game last night and one kid was wearing the freegums, HOLY SH*T did they look amazing on feet and in a game (almost to the point of distracting, but in a good way!). I'm sure you've seen these in person to compare, so I definitely respect your opinion, but completely disagree.
