Nike LeBron 9 Designer Jason Petrie Talks College Colorways
For the Nike LeBron 9, a special set of ‘college colorways’ were devised to branch out to the NCAA scene. Ohio State University, the University of Kentucky, and the University of Miami were the three schools placed front-and-center at this LeBron-ification of college kicks, and in October and November, all three colorways were released to the public. The ‘College Pack’ came at just the right time, as the NBA Lockout did not permit viewers to see LeBron wearing his kicks on court; instead, we were left with the treat of seeing these Player Exclusives hit the college hardwood over a month before the NBA season was finally scheduled to start. Jason Petrie, designer of the Nike LeBron 9 as well the two previous LeBron installments, gave his insight on the College Pack during an interview he did with Sneaker News a few weeks back, so if you want to find out more about story behind the LeBron 9 college colorways, get your Foot Locker VIP Access and head to Foot Locker Unlocked to get the low-down on the Nike LeBron 9 College Pack.
