There were eleven released colorways of the Nike LeBron 9 in 2011, but the onslaught doesn’t stop there as Nike Basketball has a few more goodies slated for Spring and Summer of 2012. One such release is the ‘Summit Lake Hornets’ colorway, which has manifested itself in LeBrons since the Nike Zoom Soldier II; it features a tonal purple upper with a pairing with a rich teal on the swoosh and midsole among other areas, with white speckling on the midsole and a white outsole. These are definitely a eye-catching colorway to say the least, but with Nike iD giving LeBron fans the ability to make their own colorways, how successful will the general releases? We’ve got a few more angles of these bad-boys after the jump, so take a look and let us know where this ranks among all Nike LeBron 9 colorways. via kickz-lab.
These need that same icey sole that came on the Christmas 9s. Add some teal laces and you have the best sneaker out. But all in all this CW is top notch. LBJ slow down on the mass production. Making the value of the sneaker go to shit..
Nice try with the pumped up saturation and contrast on the pics, get the rookies all juiced for these fuckin' barney lookin' shits, I'm not havin it. shits are fucking nasty.
can't lie, wanna hate on these but colorway is on point. teal and speckle is dope and the tongue is fresh as hell. would put the chinas ahead of these IF they didn't have that ed hardy looking tongue BUT they do so i'd say these are the best 9's i've seen. just my 2c
Hey guys, been influenced by so many of y'all and the pics up here on sneakernews I gotta decide between 3 LBJ 9 shoes:- Big Bang Summit Lake Freegums What would you pick? Btw this would be used both for balling and casual wear purpose and I don't wanna look like a clown as well hahahaha! Lemme know niggaaaaazzzzz!
thats right, pass on these. i dont give a damn what anyone says these are crazy. and i will be at foot locker bright and early to get a pair. then when they worth 1000 bucks everybody gonna be like i shoulda copped...teal laces, ima kill em
I hate this damn shoe so much. With that being said, I can feel my heart break every time I see a new pair cuz these color ways are the smoke. Hottest cw's out right now with these and those miami joints. Either way, these are an alright looking bitch with some cute ass make up on IMO
should have been the other way around. mostly teal with a lil purple. they are hot though, might have to cop.
Actually, all those people that hated the shoe already stated their opinion and moved on, while the admires are still gawking.
hey bro, im not reselling. i would never do that, 1000? hell no. i hate that dumb shit. im saying im coppin at retail before the dumb ass resellers come and fuck up my dream lol...i wanted the south beaches but i will never get them now
did i say im resellin? now this is the part where u feel like a fuckin idiot. i said when they are worth that, people will say i should have copped. i never resell, and if i do i sell for maybe 50 bucks more. i dont rape the community, i love it too much. mind your fuckin business and stop trying to sound tough on the internet you fuckin punk ass pre teen
